anyone want a 6262-B ? Less than 1200 miles on it.... $1200 + ship. (Dual ball bearing, billet compressor wheel, ported-s compressor housing, .82 AR T3 4 bolt turbine housing, built in oil restrictor) No shaft play, pulls like a beast, excellent condition.
Got a new job at a balling body shop.... all I touch now are classics, german, high end or rare sports, or exotics. It's a dream come true. Finally. Now that I have steady work again I can show some of you that my paint / body work comments aren't all talk
completely shaved / stripped.... and surrounded by good company (jag v12 2+2 & a custom pearl white! Buick Grand National GNX).
going out for coating & installation! 83mm / 2.9L (or 3.0L depending who you talk to), 8.5:1 compression
lookin fuckin good! what clear are you guys using? im banging my head against the wall with dupont at the caddy dealer i paint at
omg dupont? nooooo. At a cadi dealer too? That should be illegal.
We use Sikkins (Dutch) waterborne base and Spies Hecker (German) clear at this place (sometimes we use Sikkens clear if the customer wants to save a few $$$ - still good stuff, but Spies is the best). A fuckin gallon of spies hecker clear is like $800, though.... but it's amazing stuff. And spies hecker has the only 100% true matte clear (no additives, it's matte right out of the can). For those that don't know, every other clear coat on the market has to have certain additives / mixtures added to "make" the clear from gloss to matte, and it doesn't end up a true matte finish - it ends up being a "satin" finish - which is vastly different.
spies hecker clear is the shit dude. applies real even and bakes without issue. We use that clear on the exotics and the high end stuff, or for people who ask for the best.
Have yet to spray that clear. Yes it sucks we're using DuPont at Ed morse, which is one of the biggest caddy dealers in FL we have 5 different caddy dealers and other miscellaneous dealers. As far as I'm concerned DuPont is house paint. I would expect to Atleast spring for diamont here but nope. But it does work out ok, because the new caddys come off the trailers mottled and peely anyway. Ever notice in the lighter colored ones how you can see straight through to the sealer in the doors? Try doing a blend into that with paint that comes off the scale looking like a blind person tried to match the color. That's the battle I'm fighting lol.

Dude I just read this whole build thread and I joined the website just so I could reply lol
You're the shiz for undertaking this project and I hope to build one myself one day when I'm not broke! Haha
Seeing all the little problems and stuff definitely makes me want to have another daily first though, all of the info you posted surely will be helpful if I do decide to do it myself one of these days! I bookmarked it so I have it lol
Thanks for the inspiration man and an evening well spent reading your thread!
i wish i could put that head on my VR lol so much prettier then mine. My motor mount went out so after i replace that i will be starting getting stuff for my build starting with an intake manifold because its much needed. I hate the stupid plastic manifolds. Anyways love the new color! Its cool you have a shop you can do all that stuff at. cant wait to see her all put back together.

love that color. i think im going to do the black diamond that came on special edition 2010 cts-v's
yeah man that's a real nice black. my fav black so far has to be subaru obsidian black pearl tho.... it has a bit of green and gold flake to it... looks nasty on the right car.
Got a good deal on a used CTS T4 turbo manifold, so I picked that up. Then I found a buyer for my old PTE 6262B and PTE PW39, and with that cash I picked up a new PTE 6766B with a T4 .81, and a lightly used Tial MVR 44mm WG. I'm wondering how much of a difference T3 is to T4.....
