You're missing the extended warranty that BMW provided on turbos due to the problems that's what you're missing.....

Yeah, because now so many people (including myself) need to wait to at least 85k to "rationalize" an upgraded turbo set.

Similar spring. It measures approximately 5" long. My car is a RHD so the install is a little more complicated with the steering rack in the way. My car only has 18k miles on it and the wastegates rattle like hell (not tune related).

I tried it out using the suggested #61 spring. Unfortunately it didn't work for me. Fortunately though, my Procede keeps it under control otherwise. It was a nice experiment.
