Looking to send it out for a rebuild and P&P in the event my F23T goes tits-up..

Any suggestions where to send it to?
For p&p most guys use socal porting. I have a friend that does it a bit cheaper though, if you're interested pm me.

Also, keep in mind that unless you have an proof that your k04 was bad, it might've been the weak WG spring...which intercooler were you running with it?

The f23 has an 8 psi spring. K04 has 5.5, that will affect overall boost, especially with an efficient IC.
