    Thanks Alex, Hopefully you won’t need too, only thing that stops me from doing it myself is my back and doing the manifolds. So if that’s out of the way 2 people should have it done in a day, will see. Plus I’m paying him $500 to help me do it.

        I’ll try Edgar, but when I get into it I’ll probably forget.

          Got about 3 hours in tonight, got the turbo headers on each side and plugs and wires, other miscellaneous stuff, had to move the power steering resivor. Should have it finished tomorrow hopefully. Then having it towed back home. Then I’ll start tunning it. I’ll post pics tomorrow.

              Got it finished and home, only bad thing is that the hood won’t close. About 2”off I guess their saying you can run a bigger turbo is false. Going to ditch the SS hood and put a stock hood on and cut a hole out for it. The compressor housing is hitting it. Here’s some pics, Click image for larger version

                Blew out my left knee last month so getting a CAT scan next week and seeing a orthopedic surgeon so will be busy doing that. Will pull the hood off and tune it when I get the chance.

                  I’ve been looking at pics of stock hoods I think they have more clearance, found one at a scrap yard, going to pick it up in a couple of weeks. Also trying to post a video of the car running.

                      Looked at that one Robert, it’s still over on the passenger side abit more. I wouldn’t want to spend the $600 and still need to cut it. It’s further than the alternator. I’ll try the stock hood first. Thanks though
