Re: Can I use a VF20/21 turbo on a G13B?

They are the pair of turbos off a JDM Legacy.
The VF20 being the main and the VF21 being the secondary turbo.

Having the A/R ratios would be great, but seeing the above use I'd bet the VF20 would suit your application better. I run a TD04 off an old WRX on a stock motor just fine.

Yes, that's a good point. I have 3 phase power so might go with a 3 phase hoist. There seem to be a few second hand ones around at reasonable money. I guess used 3 phase hoists don't appeal to DIYers as most will only have single phase connections. That's part of it, but also professional workshops...

Re: Engine Light Switched on! After hitting small pot hole

Ask your local muffler shop. Guess would be $150 to fit & weld a new one.
I can weld so a high flow 2" cat is about $70.

A failing cat can just drop it's guts once it's hot - especially if you jolt it on a pothole.

Your mk1 can't easily be chipped, but as your ECU only runs fuel you can just retard the timing manually with the dizzy. Of course a fully programmable ECU will give you much more power and flexibility but at a greater cost.
