    Its been a long time coming!

    Well, its been a long time coming!

    Its been since August(ish) since ive heard my car run, so i spent this weekend doing what ive needed to get done. And i did, the turbo is not mounted on yet only because i want to take a grinder to the inside of the flange to clean some stuff up first.

    And i always run it open first to make sure their is nothing that will ruin my turbo.

    It appears to be smoking because i always soak the heat wrap in water to help it tighten after a few heat cycles.

    Anyway, here is a few pics of the progress then the BLAM! Start up!

    To all of you that have come over and helped or lent me tools to make this process possible, thank you!

    I hope to have her road worthy in about 2 weeks. Mark, i hope your ready brother!

    Just a quick question, first start up, took about 3 seconds to build oil pressure, but climbed the entire time from start up, leveled off at about 42psi and stayed their, didnt rev it, but it stayed at 42psi.

    thats a good pressure right? im thinking yes/.

    Looks sweet man. Do you think you should also wrap your coolant hoses?
