Which turbo?

I lifted the front by hand.
The rear is very heavy compared to the front with no drivetrain.
The rear I used a 4x4 on end as it got higher.

Wrapped the manifold.


New gauge faces.


Deatsch works 300lph pump with -6 line.


-6 90 sat a little higher than I expected.


So I hammered in a "hump".

OK, now the real work begins.

I am using a hybrid motor mount setup. Delrin on the drivers side, and MS on the passanger side. I wrapped the Delrin motor mount in heat tape to try to prevent the melting some talk about.






Trackspeed coolant neck delete.









I had the head guy remove and tap the outlet for the oil cooler.



The Exhaust is currently being made by Abe at ArTech, as well as the MS3x by Reverant.

The build should go by a little faster now that the motor is in.
Exhaust is about 7 weeks out, so I predict 10-12 weeks to "completion"

Looks good so far!

where did you get the gauge faces, and how are you going to mess with the speedo needle to calibrate it with the new orientation?

What's wrong with the belt, and may I ask why would I take the wrap off.

Enlighten me.

Speedo defaults to zero. You just have to move the stopper and the needle till it lands on zero perfectly.
