It wouldn't clear so I ground off the wh actuator mounts. Looks better anyway.

Now I'm on hold till the pb blaster can do its work and release the cartridge from the turbine housing so I can clock it and check clearance for the drip tank. Everything's upside down the way it is now.
I really wanted to have it mocked up tonight so I could clean and paint in anticipation of the rest if what I needed.
The Garrett oil restrictor fits perfectly. I drilled The hole larger(2mm) and the drain is same as the kkk turbos. No problem. The tuner import guys using this turbo really freaked me out but it was no issue.
I should have everything I need to finish up by next week. Bummer it's not ready now but I need to excersize patience because it needs cleaned anyway.
I miss my car.
Turbo powa!
1977 911s. it's cool
