    Hoping someone who swapped out the fiberides with crabs can confirm that crabs use the same lug nuts as the fiberides. I assume the fiberides lug nuts are the same as crabs with just a different...

    Re: 89 CSX Overboost Shutdown

    No sir. To my knowledge this car was never up for sale. The original owner approached me at a Cars n Coffee that I took my GLHS to and asked if I would like to own another Shelby.

    Ended up being the turbo. A couple vanes would not open all the way op by hand. Installed new VNT and works perfectly now.

    Re: The Shelby CSX-VNT Owner's Thread

    NP. Took it out and let the turbo eat on a on-ramp and in third WOT it settles in around 11lbs of boost. Think the actuator arm could use an adjustment, but I am leaving it there as 11lbs is better...

    Took the OG turbine scroll off and found the vanes carboned up to the point a couple vanes refuse to open all the way by hand. I assume if a couple refuse to open, then all would not have opened. ...

    No idea as the actuator spring is pretty strong. I have sourced and bought a NOS VNT-25 so hopefully that will cure it. I will then have my OG sent out for a rebuild.
