Looking great so far! Those main are huge!

What are your goals, though? Someone asked but you either didn't respond or I missed it...

Exhaust side has about 1/4" of clearance and the compressor side is just kissing the center section of the fan shroud. Just a little trimmming and it'll be good to go.

Getting everything done by www.qsraceengines.com haven't gotten the final price though as i am having them do some extras besides the machine work to the block itself.

I'm just hoping for 350hp outta the setup intially, not sure where my current turbo will max out. Building the motor to handle well more than that. I will upgrade the turbo down the road but for now everything is going into the motor.

For those wondering, this is our production design, which was designed around the use of a Garrett gt series turbo and a particular exhaust housing, but it still works with some of the older T-series turbo/housing configurations.
