      • What up G2'ers Im still here and have some great news. Car runs great, I have put almost 10k miles on this motor/turbo setup. I have had some minor issues in that time including the leaking turbo collant line but nothing big enough to tear down and fix. However last summer I found a nice crack in my down pipe as well as some very minor cracks in the manifold and the secondary reason it was time to take it back apart for repair was a lot of busted exhaust header studs. Lastly and most importantly. The 2nd gear slider took a crap so It would pop out of gear under low load. This was the straw that broke the camels back. Ipulled my spare trans out for parts but my transmission guy thought both gear stacks looks a whole lot better so with a new set of carbon syncros. the new gears stacks were installeded into the old case that has new bearing and SCHA. I also opted to try a diferent style coolant line and fitting for the turbo collant lines in an efforts to fix my coolant leak and lastly. My fan was making quite a bit of bad bearing noise(ebay special) I purchased a Fal fan that is also 2 inches larger in diameter and that is mounted to the chasis so it doesent totaly ruin my new radiator.

        Anyways On with the pics

                        • So i went back through the thread and am still slightly confused.. is the manifold full custom or an off the shelf unit thats had the wastegate passage modified? Also, what size turbo is this?

                          impressed to see full radiator setup with a ramhorn!

                                YO brotha, Yes sir, not as often, I like to drive it more then wrench on it right now. Trans is amazing, smooth shifts, slots in perfect evey time however have had its issues, on my second clutch cable now. now I see why everyone goes hydro tranny however I just learned to addapt with out. learning to rev match all over again is hard...LOL but works like a charm.

                                Got lots of updates, just need more time to start uploading pics. Vids availible upon request
