Unforunately I still have to order my 3" exhaust elbow and wastegate. Going to do that on Saturday, should have everything installed next weekend.

These are waiting to go on the TC. Got the turbo from Evergreen Turbo and the header is Bob's MOAL header with the external wastegate provision. I would have these installed already, but still need to get my 3" exhaust elbow from Stinger and my TiAL 38mm wastegate. Whatcha think???

The header has a high-temp coating on it, so hopefully it'll stay black for longer than a month or so. I am really excited to see/feel how the new turbo pulls. From what I've read I should be in the mid-13's no problem with this turbo and header. I will most definitely report back once I have everything installed.

That is pretty much "it" for the car once I get this stuff installed. My original goal was to run low 14's, which I have done. Now, my goal is a 13.50, should be pretty doable with the new turbo. I really wanted to hit a 13.9X on the stock IHI before doing the T3 swap, but never did get my launch perfected. I am pretty sure I could hit a 14 flat with the way the car sits right now.
