It definately seems better top end, Do you have to remove the compressor housing to measure it? I noticed today that the inner water feed near the exhaust flange is leaking a little water. Can I do away with the water feed, because to replace the washers I would have to spin the exhaust side around

Yes you do have to remove the housings to measure the wheels exactly

I personaly would leave the water feeds on as they're there to cool the turbo down, your be ok to rotate the housing round abit to remove the union to replace the washer

if you haven't done the cam yet, if you remove the all the pushrods you can use magnets to to lift the cam followers and get the cam out without removing the head.
