Well the adapter works great. used a bent section of 2.5 in exhaust tubing, and heated and crushed it till it was oval shaped and fit to the t3 flanges nicely. It set the turbo front to clear the sensor that reads the fly wheel teeth and cleared the PCV hosing. But the down side is the stock fans didnt come close to fitting. so i used the biggest slim fans i could. And turns out they dont pull enough air through the radiator. it runs hot in slow traffic and when idled for an extended period of time in the summer. but while driving it runs at normal temp. The turbo im using is pretty big also. a smaller one might have cleared better.
The only other problem i have is i cant keep the damn exhaust bolts to stay tight. lock tight and lock washers dont make a difference.
