Oh man, I forgot you already have the 99 head on there.

Then converting to NB sensors should be easy peasy, and very well worth your effort.

Yeah, I wouldn't put that big monster on there with the 94-97 head.

I will add something to the valve cover up front, it will be easy I am sure!

Hahaha and a 8374... that would be the day. Wouldn't be able to find enough hamsters locally to spin the turbo with 1.6!

the thing with the VVT intake cam gear and valve cover is that they wont work for you unless you change to a VVT head totally.... the intake cam pulses and the mounting hardware for the cam sensor at the back of the valve cover wont work for you without a custom cam and custom valve cover.


that said, you can get a '99-00 valve cover with the front cam angle sensor provision and run that. I just cut a '99 valve cover front... if you want the front scrap to weld onto yours to make some weird hybrid valve cover you are my guest... just pay the shipping. then you can bolt the '99-00 CAS to that.

My valve cover is off of a MSM, however I cut too excited with the cutter. I'll PM you my address!

You could use two of the big ones though :(

I'm actually really curious about spool time and how your power curve is going to look.
When are you going to post dyno graph and video?

I looked at the compressor map for this turbo. This things going to be hilarious, nothing nothing nothing, compressor surge surge, 5krpm 35psi ohmehgawd. Like literally everything under ~5k rpm is left of the surge line. This is going to be awesome.
