but first I have to get my car together. almost there but kinked a stainless oil feed line. better hope the g thing still works. unkinked it the best I could

whats left to do (im pissed, this should calm me down)

-pull turbo back out enough to clean surfaces and put on manifold gaskets and bolt it back up
-install bov and charge pipes and get wastegate bolted down
-build support brace from block to dp flange
-build downpipe and get it bolted in.
-install fan
-plug some intake holes for now
-reinstall intake manifold bolt
-start it up and check for leaks
-get belt around crank pulley and power steering
-finish the rest of the exhaust
-change plugs and valve cover gasket

oh jeez Im close... I was yelling at it so i had to stop for the day
