Haha, it was no small feat. 6 or 7pm till 2am every night for about 10 days. It needs some tuning and other things to make it driveable but I'm excited to hear it run for the 1st time.

not that I can see, my guess is the pin was pushed a towards the front of the car a little. and fluid is now seeping from around the outside of the bolt, im guessing its some sort of press seal

Keep us posted on how things turn out. I don't have any drive time yet so I'm not sure on what the results will be.

Here are some views of the completed turbo kit. I still need to do some tuning to make it drive able and then begin fitting the rest of the body panels.

A little more progress was made this weekend. It felt really good to make a trip around the block.

It sounds like a diesel turbo. Not gonna lie, I'm jealous of that sound. You're motivating me to get my car done.
