Most folks will tell you that there are two kinds of people in this world when it comes to the way that you work on your cars. There are the people who do it cheaply and then there are the people who do it correctly. However, if you ask Matt Happel and the Sloppy Mechanics, they will tell you that there might just be a third option wedged somewhere in between there, an option that can save you money and take your dollar as far as it can possibly go and then some. As the name infers, their methods might not exactly be conventional, however, it’s really hard to argue with their results.
This time, it’s a little bit of turbo modification that Matt is taking on as he decided to take a perfectly good turbo, cut into it, and do something that you’ve probably never seen before. Instead of mounting the wastegate somewhere within the piping, he decided to cut out the middleman quite literally as he began to drill down into the turbo itself, mounting the boost controlling measure a little bit closer to home. To most, something like this might just look a little bit crazy but for Matt and company, I think they’re pretty used to being called crazy at this point. However, with results like we’ve seen from them, I don’t really think they care all that much what anybody has to say about them.
If you follow along with the Sloppy Mechanics video down below, you’ll be able to see exactly the rhyme and reason about why anyone would want to cut into a brand-new turbocharger or any turbo for that matter. After following along with something like this, be sure to tell us what you think of all the madness that’s pictured in this video. Personally, I know that I always have my eyes peeled for what the Sloppy Mechanics will come out with next because you never know where you might just pick up a nice little tech tip to save yourself a little bit of money without really sacrificing much of, well, anything.
