You ready to start wrenching on this she-it? I was going to drive my vr4 over today but it's stuck in my lawn and won't budge. I shoveled around the wheels and it still won't move. Damn g-force tyres, they don't hook for shit when it's cold and icy. Looks like my gt won't be going anywhere for another week or so. :( Pro'lly just as well I'm not legal until April 1st.

When you get your car done your at least going to take it to the track once right? I'm thinking maybe late May early Jun for some test and tune at AK raceway park. Already planning things out with some friends. Should be (in my group) a couple of DSMs an EVO maybe a STI, a 'Cuda and a CBR600rr, and a couple of 3000gts.

How's your hand doing man?

DO NOT wrap the headers. That will only make them crack.

heres a pic of my new turbos next to some of my old ones: dr500,custom 50trim,16gtd05.


heres a pic of the exhaust side. it is bigger than the td05's hot side.


clocking and test fitting the turbos.


todays list: istall rear main seal and oil pan, rig my old oil drains to fit the new turbos that didnt come with any(been all over town but nobody has them). mount turbos and shes ready to drop in. flywheel, clutch, then tranny in if all goes well.

If looks ment anything

Sounds like a lot of good progress. I bet you're super excited. How come you can't put your oil pan on while its on the stand though?

almost done! i would have finished today but im waiting on inline oil filters that were suppossed to come with the new turbos but, now i have to wait cause they forgot them when the turbos came back in feb., bs! i could be driving it in hours but, now i have to wait for something that should have been here.

left to do: install plenum,ic pipes, replace and fill rad.,bleed brakes, and some vac lines, thats it! id bust my ass and finish today but theres no need as turbo guys forgot imortant item, not 3sx's fault! josh has been very helpful. was told they shipped but not in mail today(or tommorrow) kinda pissed but, what can i do?
heres proof how frustrated iam right now.

Gonna run a pump for the front oil return line?

:confused: i dont know what you mean.

oh oil, thought you said fuel. i have it at an angle all the way to the pan its not much but the amount of oil that these turbos use comes thru a hole the size a pin makes in paper, i cant imagine more than that trickling down the line.
