Good luck with the build! I'm sure you'll finish yours before I even start by next build. IF I start a next build.

Thanks Mark, trying to do it slow but stuff I need keeps popping up on the bst. Lol I'm planning on building the engine some time this summer. Still debating on a few things. Compression is one of them. You have the supertech pistons that are 10.4 right?

Well I had some more parts come in the past few days so I figured I'd post some picks for everyone. Thanks again to MaxAtk and Thomas Racing for everything.
ARP Head and Main stud kit and K1 rods



Here is a little mock up with the dump tube and turbo mounted to the head


This is a VMS oil catch can.

It's coming along pretty good. Still have plenty more to go. I'll keep everyone posted as stuff comes in.

Looks good. It would have saved me so much time if FocusSport (FSWerks) would have been selling their T3 manifolds back when I made mine.

So I kept having problems with my downpipe cracking so I went today and got it to where I'm running 3" turbo back now. Shop did a good job. Sucks I'm just gonna make another one later on but needed to be done. I didn't like my old downpipe setup that much so much happier with this one.
