Its basically done, all rewired, and waiting for the injectors and turbo to go back on. Once they get here, they go on, and get back in action. I have to put the radiator back in, but I couldn't do that until I got the dampner back on, and it needs new bolts anytime you take them off. Oh yeah, one small thing. The damned starter. I forgot to put it on before I installed the motor. No biggie right, WRONG. You have to lift one side of the motor up to get it in between the frame rail. FML.

Well, I got the balancer on today, the belt, the radiator, and cross member, and mounted the HP turbo. The LP turbo required a little cutting of the fender well but fits just fine. The Pipe from the LP to the HP turbo had to have the v band flange cut off since the new turbo does not have a V band. I had a boot laying here that some how fits the pipe and the turbo now. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then.

Well, the flange was made to actually fit the turbo, and I got it mounted up. Had to "trim" a little of the inner fender but it fits pretty nice. Also convenient that the new turbo has a threaded piece right by the compressor outlet to make a strap so it doesn't blow the boot off.





And the radiator is mounted and plumbed and figured I would go ahead and put the grill back on. Injectors get here tomorrow.

You speak the truth. MOST folks don't understand the difference, that is why I have referred to it as a Twin. Easier than explaining the different 3 types of "dual, (or more) turbo setups.

Injectors got here today, along with a hurricane. FML I now have everything back. All I need is to get them in, and get one 5.5" to 4" silicone boot for the MAF sensor tube, and air filter element. Oh yeah, and I have family coming in tomorrow till next thursday, then Friday and Saturday is Aquapalooza here on Lake Travis. With any luck though, I can have it ready to go test and tune by July 7th. :nail:
