I'm sorry but you have a lot more reading and research to do than I can fit in this thread. I advise you take at least six months to read up on forced induction before trying to tackle an FI project such as this. The better option is likely to buy a pre-made kit from a reputable maker (not off ebay).
This is a good place to start learning about turbos: http://www.turbobygarrett.com

Now what could this be for?



(40% off with coupon code A123 at Advance Auto )

5 parts HEET to 1 gal PEAK -20* brand washer fluid should be about 55% methanol / 45% water.
I haven't found a local place to buy straight methanol to make my own mix so this will have to do.

Working towards getting the intake manifold installed. Unfortunately in order to make room for the manifold I had to swap power steering pumps for an older style and use the older style power steering reservoir. Due to my unconventional turbo setup I couldn't mount the power steering reservoir in the stock location, so I just made a bracket. I mounted the reservoir as high as possible. It's hard to believe the hood clears it, but it does.





Old style (2003-2005?) vs. new style with integrated reservoir (2006+)
The only difference is the tube

Which inlet? I think I took photos of about every angle for both the T3 turbine inlet and the ambient inlet on the first page. You can also look through my photos directly at my Photobucket page
