Holy craaaaap!!! I'm super jealous! You are going to have one sick rocket ship there.

Your fuel basket kind of worries me. There might be a chance of draining it.

basket is mostly for cooling the pumps so they don't burn up, still draws from the tank.

Congratulations George. The light at the end of the tunnel is nearing. I wish you the best of luck with your build and can't wait to see the final product.

Thanks. Let's hope its not a train. Guy doing the heads is very busy with engine builds and has back ups on his work. He gets to them when he can and I don't rush him. For the time he takes to explain things and teach me it is worth the wait because I have an excuse to speak with him. Rest of the groceries have been ready for months now. Gives me time to do other things, like angioplasty on the stock headers lol, help spec out the push rods, research cam stuff, get new badges. Shop has had a large Twin Turbo Creations box in their workspace for a while now, so I am thankful for their patience, although it is a high and handy workspace, as you can see the neumatic rotary tool next to the headers.

Lol merely a reference . Yeah time is not on our sides when it comes to these big builds as they are very demanding. But some say that patience is a virtue . Yeah definitely sounds you have gathered most of the parts to complete your build; badges are a necessity. I forgot if you mentioned this but are you going to JetHot your piping or just heatwrap it?

There was a good bit of crap in there.

Shop was kind enough to blast them for me. Thought they had been spray painted.

Bench racing dyno estimated effect - 80 hp and 20% faster spooling.


Actual HP gain, 4hp and turbos spool .03 of a second faster. LOL... but I'll "feel" much better about it...
thats what my plan is as well, if theyre already off and easy to do, you'd be crazy not too, love the pics and the build. youre gonna be very pleased with the end result!!
