Also, probably going to be building a couple more for another buddy; 770XXH and 770XXXXH.
Question is what guides are you guys using for these? I built my 2 X 4 using the Titanium turbo guides but they're a little spendy. I see C&M has the Pac Bay titanium turbos. What Fuji guide is good for this?
I have used the PacBay Ti turbos, the Fuji SiC HBSGs and SiN II CHBNG/BHBNGs, they're all good. I'm partial to the PacBay Ti Turbos because the are much lighter and flex more than the SS framed Fujis.
If you are building those heavy a$$ed rod, then weight isn't a factor, however with the lighter, smaller O.D., Phenixs', they are a consideration.
