Thanks. I hope to get it done or a good way along this weekend, but we will see. I work 80 to 100 hours a week so I don't have much time lately especially with the wife sick. Where do you hold the meets? I work most of the time, but I will try and make some.

What kind/grade bolts and nuts should I use to mount the turbo? Last thing I needed :)
I mean will stainless steel be good enough?

I am busy installing the turbo, but I have a few questions about installing this Comp turbo. Is there anyone available that I can call to ask a few questions? It has to do with the oil drain and oil feed ports.

Thanks

I have the JRSC fully un-installed and my original intake on and the Turbo mounted. I am starting the IC and vacuum piping now.

Nice. It sounded easy to me, but installing the IC and charge pipes takes longer than you would think. You still have oil lines, plugs, injectors to do?

Injectors are done. Oil lines, vacuum lines, plugs, IC piping and electronics still have to be done.
