    Did you change anything from the engine (pistons, cams)? How much boost you planning on running?

    Nice looking turbo.

    A properly built turbo would see much more power.

    If there was a quality turbo kit in the market, I would grab one in a heart beat! (depending on price) :biggrin:

    Where you get your kit from? Or who made u a manifold?

    heres a lil update, I had about 2 hrs free today. the wg pipe has a mount, that bolts it to the transmission as extra support. You can barely see it in the picture

    I got the muffler location, and my pipes came in a day late so I could finish the exhaust
