Oh I've read through that a few times already and sure I'll refer back to it once I get going on mine.

Finished getting the long tubes off and was able to get the v-bands welded onto the stock manifolds. I also wrapped the manifolds. Just waiting on exhaust gaskets to bolt them up.

Mounted the turbo today. I used a 1x1 piece of steel welded to the frame then made a bracket to bolt the flange to the bar.

Not too much to update as I'm still waiting on some parts to arrive, but I got the turbo bracket bolted up and oil feed line run. I'm using a dirty dingo oil block with a 4an line and a one way Summit check valve before the turbo. Hope to finish up the hotside by this weekend if I can find the time to work on it.

I am actually doing the same build, just not much of a poster.

I'd consider having another -10 or -12 bung put into the valve cover to run a catch can. I've got a -10 welded into each of my valve covers that go into a dual catch can for crank case evacuation. Unless you spend the money on a kit the vendors sell.
