You might need to modify the frame rail since turbine housing might bump. Also may need to modify the shelf on the trans tunnel.

For the modifications, I recommend use of a, ah, well, you know what I recommend.

So yes.

I stopped caring right before I built yours.

I found the coffee can rolling around outside. My neighbors are pigs. K-cups only for me.

I never had french press coffee. Seems like there'd be lots of grinds in it.

It does not fit in all as one piece. Gets stuck a little after the flex joint. I got most of it installed now except for the down pipe. I can not get it attached by myself for the life of me. Hopefully my friend can come over tonight and give me a hand.

rub oil or grease around the inside of the v-band clamp, that will help it slide into place.

Any tips for affirming a good seal on all joints? I always do mine alone. I had a really tough time with my wastegate and I'm not sure it's sealing. I don't see any black-stuff on the surface though.
