Yes, I did get in contact with him. He had the car in local shop and they really messed the car up. They charged him $1800 to rebuild the stock turbo and it had so much shaft play that the fins ate up the housing. They had the wastegate plumbed wrong so the wastegate was closed all of the time and they spun a bearing and siezed the motor from running it with high boost. I ended up putting a fresh motor in the car(built by Dicus Benton) and a new turbo. I went and picked up the car with my trailer and ended up having it for about 6 weeks and then he was able to come pick it up and drive it home. We live about 40 miles apart and he called me after he got home and said that the 40 miles he drove it that day was more than he had been able to drive it in the previous 3 years!
