Ok so some of you have already seen the other thread I had going so don't get upset if you've already seen these pictures.
Well I started test fitting yesterday and things look a little snug but should not pose any problems.
Without manifold and turbo


with just manifold



^Just low enough to put the exhaust below the alternator(was my biggest worry)

Here is some with manifold and turbo



^This was another concern for the intake but it is just a bracket that can easily be manipulated to make an intake work for the turbo. Also, can someone chime in and tell me what lines those are in the picture. Waste gate is a little close to them.( The ones with the heat guards on them)

For the cold side, I was fortunate enough to purchase Sporadic's cold side on here.(Thanks again)

(I like the blue but this has already been painted black)
For the top half of my cold side, I will be using the top half of a K&N typhoon CAI

Should work just fine. And I will be able to use the other half on the hot side or intake for the turbo.
When I mount everything I will make sure to post pics and what bends I used to make the hotside.
(will be painted black as well once welded together)

This is all I have done right now just have to wait on a few more pieces. Starting tomorrow, I will be getting some more pieces. I'm gonna find a shop to do the downpipe and exhaust for me.( wish I knew how to weld or knew someone who was decent at it) Hopefully this will all be done by the end of next month if not the first week of July. Open to suggestions and will do my best to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you. Will definitely take as many as I can. Oil feed should come in today also a boost gauge I bought from a member on here. Going to be adjusting the turbo today will make sure to post some pics.

Well got some more goodies in the mail. Got my oil feed line in and put on the turbo. Got boost gauge that I bought from a member on here. I ordered SCT fire wire and brass T's for the water lines(Thanks Sporadic) and 1/8x3an for the sandwich plate for the feed line.
I slacked on getting pictures of clocking the turbo but didn't want to high jack my own thread for a how-to on clocking a turbo. I will post pics of the before and after. I did adjust the compressor housing so I can run the hot side piping a lot easier and more effective. Should finish up the cold side next week and will post pics of that.

I was informed the Pex style brass T will not work for rubber hoses. Another guy tried to use them and they would simply never seal. Looks like I'll stick with my plastic Ts from Napa for a while longer.

well that sucks seeing as mine already came in and I ordered banjos to match them. If I have the right clamps for them will they work? If not, I'm out 35 bucks. I don't see why they wouldn't work. they have perforated edges on them. ( "tapered" edges. Definitely don't want edges full of holes LOL. I will keep it here for amusement. Never drink and post.)

the ones on my turbo are much larger. the 3/8 outlet fits inside them but seeing as my turbo is recommended for 6an, this should be perfect for it.
