The manifold is pretty much finished, might do some shaving tho but it's good for now









I also took the compressor housing of the new turbo to see if it could be rotated easily and it won't be a problem. And that size difference, damn!

Did some test fitting tonight. Shaved the intake manifold a little and got a alternator/ac pump bracket. I'm having some minor clearance problems with the alternator but nothing serious. I also moved the cooling fan to the right side of the radiator to make room for the ic piping. It's awesome to see this coming along, can't wait to finish this

Did some work tonight. First off, got a hose for the turbo inlet. It's a tight fit but it fits. I'll also have too shorten the rust free 90 bend a bit.





My friend who's helping me made me these brackets for the ic, it's not going anywhere now



Then we fabbed up the piping on the manifold side



Then we welded what we got already (those welds tho)









And we also modded the alternator bracket, still have to weld it properly



Still haven't really figured out the turbo side piping yet

Fascinating!
Are you going to run an open hood scoop to match up with the location of your filter?

Things are coming along nicely. We finished the manifold half of the piping and welded the alternator bracket. Turbo half of the piping should be finished tomorrow
