Well we have a little of an update on the project but it seems like I'm backing
up about half the time. I've had all this stuff on and off more times tha a $10
hookers drawers. Everything seems to be fabricate, mock up, test fit, modify,
refit, order something else, wait for parts, refit, and paint. Finally it looks like most
of this is good to go. This pretty much finished header and turbo placement, CIS
relocation and test fitting the turbo to CIS intake plumbing. The "Horse Power God" is
working on the new IC and I'm ready to mount and plumb the boost controller
solenoid and build fuel lines.

I had to change the angle on the oil tank neck to get a little more clearence for
the fuel head inlet and return lines. It did get me the 3/4 inch I needed but was a
***** to do. painted it late last nite and It's going back this evening.

Finally got all the pieces for the wastegate pipe and got it welded up. I built
brackets for a good turbo support bracket to the engine yoke and buttoned all
the loose ends to finalize the exhaust and turbo system. I'll do the zork and
dump pipe once I start installing the rear bumper.

I finalized the CIS mount and it's been test fit, looking good there, so
I will be setting it in tonight. I set it up so I can pull the CIS and set it out
of the way, to get at the right side valve covers and plugs, without even
having to diconnect any fuel lines.

I got the last hoses and clamps for the CIS to turbo plumbing yesterday
the only thing left there will be the up pipe once the IC gets here. So while I'm
waiting I made a small bracket for the EBC solenoid and got the fittings to
install it. Due to the fact that I'm too cheap to buy the high dollar Greddy
Solenoid I just used an industrial MAC valve. Should be a nice set up because
I put a .6 Bar spring in the wastegate and with the EBC I can be assured any
system failure will default to the wastegate spring pressure. The big advantage
to a good EBC is not so you can screw with a lot of boost it's that, when
installed correctly, the solenoid cycles on and off rapidly to more precisely
maintain the programmed boost level while holding the wastegate shut until
the preset is reached. The natural tendancy for creep as building boost starts
moving the valve off the seat is eliminated and the preset boost level is reached
much faster. The boost solenoid is going to be mounted on the tub rail just above
the wastegate.

I can see light at the end of the tunnel, just hope it isn't a train.
