Starting to get it back together. Brakes and fuel back in. Harness is routed. All harness wires will be concealed behind the original SAAB inner fenders except for a couple of little places where it will have to poke through. Makes for a nice wire tuck.



Also built a coolant reroute spacer.

Working on wiring. I hate it. So I stopped.



Finished the coolant reroute. Tapped the oil pan for turbo drain. No reason to not reinstall it and start hooking things up. Passenger side is tight but enough room to fit everything. Plenty of room for the turbo on the driver's side. Going with a TD04 from a WRX.

Stein, you're doing this wrong. You need to take pictures of every single part spray painted black.

These guys will be racing this car in the 100 Acre Wood in MO pretty soon. (If any of you remember forum member "modernbeat", that's his car).

Turbo manifold and downpipe fabricated. Well, the downpipe is just tacked. Ran out of argon for my TIG.



Got the radiator, fans, intercooler mounted.

I'll get some when I pull it back out. It's basically a flowish log like I built for my NB a couple of years ago and like sturovo is building now with one extra el to top mount it. I didn't have room or side mount the turbo with the SAAB inner fender there and I have plenty of hood clearance plus the top feed intercooler it's easy in and easy out.

Nice work. I'd be a little bit concerned with that one el though, its supporting everything. Maybe brace it?

Possibly. I considered a couple of braces but obviously haven't done anything yet.
