That's most customers with cars/trucks/boats.

Even mention parts that should be replaced also with the new power and it's either 'I'll drive it easy for now' or a "what do you mean?"

Sorry about the delay.

Wastegates plumbed and in place. Fitted and fused it all up on the mock up LS block i have on the stand.

I think they turned out ok

back into the truck with the hot parts and turbos, make some over-engineered brackets to get the intercooler mounted

Make some pie cuts for getting a tighter radius than the mandrel bends

Shorten a couple 90 degrees bends for the intercooler inlets

Little rusty on A/C current welding aluminum, but am getting a better understanding of the a/c pulse feature and it is soooo nice to have once you get settings dialed in.

This was where the pie cuts were a must. As said before it is a tight fit but everything has good clearance. the passenger side is finished other than needing to roll beads on the coupler joint that sits in the radiator support and welding up the downpipe
