Just some updates. Putting the harness back where its suposed to be, cleaning up some wiring and finished plumming the oil cooler, i need a few fittings for the powersteering and some 5/8 hose.

Still need to finish welding the BOV IAT and MAP sensor bungs. BOV is tacked and is currently installed

Yeah getting those shafts in can be a bit painful at times, especially the shorter one.

Whenever I've done it in the past, I think I would have used a jack to raise the transmission slightly higher to make the spline teeth on both parts line up a little straighter. Once lined up, I go ham on shaking the hub back and fourth while occasionally turning the shaft a tiny bit at a time. Normally doesn't take too long to hear that satisfying 'pop' sound which tells me that the shaft is all the way back in.

Been a minuet.... well i bought awhole different turbo setup... i went with an actual gtx2860r cartridge.... and a .60 a/r compressor housing.... i dont have the mounting hardware for it yet though....

But either way iv fabed up where i want the turbo to mount and make sure it clears everything in the car, and im going to use that to make a permanent jig out of 1/2inch aluminum plate and 1-1/2inch square tubing to hold everything during the welding process of the header.

And if it turns out well and if theres any want or need i can make more of the headers for others too.

I want to fine tune it a smidge to make the downpipe easier but ill have to see exactly where it all comes out. I havnt seen pictures of where others turbos are placed other than the pictures on MWRs setup but i think overall the setup i have will be more efficient on the wastegate. Not sure if i want a ram horn style or to freestyle it...

this is the old flange from my last header me an my uncle fabbed up i have a new flange for welding i just used it to help make the jig. So i didnt waste a new flange.




Theres still some adjustments iv made after these pictures so it wont land exactly wheres its shown but its close enough.

I also make some EXTRA clearance....

... on another note i finally bought the computer for this project so right now i pretty much have everything ill need to get this car finished and will post updates more often.
