It's been a long time and I've finally gotten around to posting some progress pics of the turbo project. Can't wait til I can drive it again! Enjoy!

Putting together the new engine with forged rods











She's ready...


Ripping that old engine out




That new engine is in!


And then I decided to start using a decent camera instead of my phone...
Had to make a custom bracket for the vacuum actuator and when you can't weld, you do this.








It's getting there! Will post more pics of updates

Very nice start, a nice clean engine too!

As pretty as your blue T is, I'd worry about it cracking from vibrations, I'd keep an eye on that. We have that issue when we try T fittings on the oil pressure sensor for turbo oil feeds.

Thanks curly,
I'll keep an eye on it, although my brother is rethinking about redoing it with a thicker plate and using bigger fittings. Would it still be an issue without the weight of a pressure sending unit hanging off it?
