I had fun getting my drain setup too. Get with Lev and do whatever he did since you guys have pretty much the same manifold

I tried to follow his, but Im almost sure that my manifold sits lower that his. I have a 45* to 90* 10 AN line. Now I need a 90* to 90* because the ******* 45* hits the steering rack. I also fucked beyond reason the line by cutting it with a jack saw trying to ghetto rig some **** to try to start this bitch right away.

This is the last bit of fab work I have to do. The feed line should be here by Friday. Now I have to wait till saturday when I off and head to Murrays for 90* feeding.

Oh btw the GT drain fitting that I had previously from the Garrett does not fit the churbo.

^^Murphy's law.


This is killing me!!!! This **** better be fast once Im done, oh **** wait I'll need a clutch for that

If it can happen, it will happen to Buffon..... and Maybe to Jared.

Quick question did you stayed with 45/90 line or did you also had to use a 90/90?

I'm using 2 45s on mine and I had to clock the turbo slightly to keep the fitting from hitting the steering shaft.

Im not gonna **** with the turbo now that is in. It would take one of my nuts to take it out, and the other one to put it back in.

That's what i tried and no ******* way it would fit. The 45* makes the hose curve and it just wont do it. I'll try something else tonight.
