Maybe next week, although that is looking less and less likely.

I think some of the welds look shitty IMHO. And I totally goofed-up the measurement on that first straight of the downpipe, hence the added ~1" section. Harder to do on your back than on a lift.

I'm also very very very interested in seeing dyno results of this turbo. I'm probably going to be posting the twins in the for sale section soon.

Almost in there. I need to build a new oil drain (waiting on a low-profile 45* hose end), redo the IC pipes, helicoil an exhaust stud, and get an intake and I'm ready to go.

Well shoot, you're 99% there.

I especially like the welded mixing manifold. I did this to mine, and if I ever get a water cooled turbo, I'll be drilling and tapping it for a water line. Are you going to clock the turbo for a standard around-the-bottom-of-radiator setup, or ditch the lights and go around the top of the radiator, like those ******* NB owners can do.

BTW I can't believe after all the weight saving's you've done, you left the engine hoist hook and ps pulley in.

Turbo cannot be clocked in any direction except the direction it's facing right now. You hit (in clockwise order) the subframe, then the steering rack, then the block, then the manifold.

The motor hooks are still there as a threat to the shortblock: "I can have another you in a minute"

Oh gotcha. I have mine bolted to my engine pull chain, another quick and slightly lighter method.

gayvington,
I can flip the stock water neck around and not hit the radiator? This is good news. I cant' wait to get my parts in and actually make it through a session.
