Stage 3 --> ceramic coated manifold and polished turbo housing

I picked up this used kit a couple months ago and have been slowly getting it ready for install. I've already ported the O2 housing side of the manifold, had the manifold ceramic coated, and the turbo housing polished.

I haven't seen any pictures of the S3 turbo polished, so I thought I would post these here.

Needs a side shot of the compressor housing. Very nice! When is install date? Did you put bigger wheels in there or atleast get the turbo rebuilt?

That's sooo bad ass. Is that actual ceramic coating?

Thanks guys. The coating is actual ceramic. It cost $125 to have coated by a local shop. It's suppose to handle up to 2000*. The polishing on the housing was only $35.

I'm very happy with how it turned out. I considered having the CHRA be-balanced, but it doesn't have any considerable shaft play, so I'm just going to install it the way it is.

Thats badass. Where did you get it polished? Was it local?

Yes, the place is about 7 miles from my house. They do good work and they're dirt cheap.
