Nothing worth reporting on yet, still just working minor details out on paper and trying to get my hands on some needed items.
Example, a wideband a/f gauge... Lol.

I did purchase an sct tuner from steeda, and found out the cost of a full dyno tune.

Baby steps at the moment, as my wife found me out! Hahah :(

Main problem is funding, so next big purchase is the actual turbo I think.

Once I get that I can try some mock-up. And start planing pipe routing and oil/coolant feeds. Some lines some time, and a lil bit of luck. And I'm still aiming for a tuning turbo by fall.

I would suggest purchasing an eBay turbo and having it rebuilt. ~$300 to have it rebuilt with Garrett internals. Same thing with the wastegate. I bought an HKS rep wastegate and replaced it with an HKS diaphragm. Never failed me on my previous car.

Personally, I would go with the aftermarket Steedspeed manifold made for the MS3 and get the optional aftermarket turbo flanges on it. The stock MS3 K04 turbos have a very delicate balance on the oil seals and smoke very very easily out the exhaust side. Either that, or cheap route with the stock MS3 manifold with an ebay 2871 with an ATP exhaust side made for the MS3\6 upgrades.
