Yeah the reason I couldnt before was because I liked hearing that clanking sound your flywheel made as you passed by!

Well yesterday I attempted to clock the turbo, which was a complete waste of time. After hitting the turbo with a hammer, quite hard, I gave up and will take it to a shop. Either way I got some pictures to add to the thread. One pic is a t-25 (left) next to the greddy 15g (right). The other is showing the initial porting I just finished on my downpipe, you can compare it to braineack's pic above of before the porting. Still need to clean out a bit more.

Yesterday, I took the turbo to midas and had it superheated and hit w/ a rubber mallet. FINALLY I have clocked it. Its mounted up now and i'm facing new problems.
1> there is nowhere to mount the wastegate
2> The elbows that come off the compressor side pretty much run into each other, which means they will probably need to be cut.

Left the cam at home, i'll post the pics tonight

Yesterday I got the oil line in the mail and added the water lines onto the turbo just to see how I was going to run them. Everything is looking pretty good at this point minus the I/C piping route and the wastegate.. Take a look at the pics.

I see two options for the inlet:
1> 45 degree silicon bend and position the filter behind my headlight naca duct (see next post w/ drawing)
2> cut the flange and put the filter down behind the radiator

As for the I/C piping, I think a 90 degree bend silicon should put me in good shape.

Hey Brad,

Glad you're making some headway with it. Sorry about the t-25/28 confusion. I was going off of what I was told...
