After a long Saturday in the garage... I put the engine, trans, shifter, drive shaft, etc all in the car yesterday along with finishing up most of the fuel system.

Couldn't you have found a bigger turbo for that thing?

Nice clean install you have going, Miller. It will be fun to see the finished product.

stock hood should fit w.o any issues. I have another "drag only" turbo kit which came with my motor... it includes a higher mounted manifold and hood with a port in it... however on the street its going to be smarter to run the car with a filter

i recently saw a turbo compressor wheel that was hit with debris.
It was not pretty.
I'd want sometime/anything vs having it completely open. With how fast they spin, I would think it would not take much to damage

Time for an update...

Key was very tempermental, key was bent, and was not smooth, So I opted to swap it out.



The dash has to be pulled apart, key inserted and turned to the ACC postion to allow the lock button to be depressed. Then they key and cylinder should just pull out... since mine was full of metal shavings and debris, I needed vice grips and to pry out the cylinder lol

Here is where the button is that needs depressed to pull the key cyl out:



Now my new nightmare... wiring! Got a 6 speed harness and found that the wire tuck that was done previously has a lot of the items integrated. So its a matter of figuring out what has been done and what needs done. I am by far from a good wiring guy, so this is the biggest challenge for me...




I installed my LQ9 coil kit and got it all ready to integrate in the harness.



eye candy pic of the coils and brackets
