sure thing ive got my cold pipe with blow off valve done, my guage (lc1 and boost guage) holder that will go between the ac and heat controls and cd player, the bottom of the down pipe and 2.5 inch straight pipe back, power steering re route ( had to cut off the neck on the power steering side and weld it back on. The material was really thin for my tig welder so i used jb weld just in case i had a small leak any where. front mount intercooler mounted with some home made brackets, hot pipe connected but still missing one 90 deg coupler, turbo with 90 deg coupler missing, down pipe sprayed with some grill paint

kinda stuck on a problem.. any one know a good way of getting to the oil pressure sending unit by the oil filter with out taking off the lower intake mani? I took of the brace under it and it helps a lot but still seems like a pain with out taking the whole manifold out... IDEAS?!?!?

you can do it without removing the lower manifold...

lol... i had to do this, and it was a bitch... iirc, you can use a really short swivel head open box 17mm wrench...

but to get at it, i actually removed the starter and motor mount.. lol....

not fun, but doable... and prepare to curse like there is no tomorrow as you are doing this...

Yes...you also did a heater calibration the first time around...this means you probably hooked it up right.

Mine used to take a half hour to heat up...I had to do it again.
