Then i moved onto the pressurized oil from the block to the turbo. I bought stainlesssteel reinforced line with an fittings. This was neat caused i have never used these before. For anyone looking to use them they are very easy to assemble.

As you can see i also utilized a T fitting to use my stock oil pressure sending unit. There was another bung in the motor to use but it was being blocked by the motor mounts.

Then i moved on to the down pipe . When i made the down pipe i thought i may have to be adjusted when the engine was installed and i was right. It was hitting the firewall and the ac parts. So i cut the pipe at a 20 degree angle and re welded it. It fit great.

Also added about 8 inches in length and another 90 bend in preparation to exit the fender.

Then. Moved on to the intake pipe . I bought a j bend and ended up cutting about 5 inches off the side which mounts to the turbo. The following are pics on how i plan on routing my intake pipe. The first pictures so the intake pipe before i cut it and looks very long.

You will notice that the turbo is clocked and almost looks likes the hood will not shut. I have it that way on purpose so i can mock up the Spectre airbox. After it comes in then i will move it back as far as i can. I also bought 2 inch j bend which i will use to make a new boost pipe from the turbo to the intake. The one thats one there is the stock pipe which i cut and is ful of rust and junk.

This pretty much catches everyone up on the progress. The brown truck man did deliver my fuel line kit and check valve today so fuel lines should be getting plumbed this week.



Has anyone here used the Borgesen heavy duty steering shaft? My shafts u joint is shot and of course u cant just buy that little guy.

So you're going to have a stack in the center? It would seem better to have the exhaust run left towards the passenger side, down, and exit the rear similar to stock. This would leave the engine a little more open for repair. Just a guess, I've never seen one of these in person.

The exhaust is going to exit the passenger side fender almost across from the jeep logo. Then straight up on the out side of the fender.


The down pipe exits the turbo and goes down to about the starter and then 90 degrees to the passenger side

If you're exiting left, then why go right at all? Is your compressor in the way?

Okay i think i see what your thinking . The pipe that is in the front middle of the engine is an intake pipe. That pipe will go into the cowling and stop. It wont come out of the cowling. Is that the pipe you are looking at?

Nice. The funny part is the lady looks like my mom, but who the F*CK is the other guy! Haha. When I first saw the pic I literally busted out laughing. I don't normally do that. The parrot is over the top!

I'm getting bored of it though. I might switch to something else increasingly creepier in the near future.

Well guys i got a lot done this evening . I finished the fuel lines and return line.


I finished the throttle linkage and made sure it goes w.o.t.

Patrially got my power steering finished. Just need to get a longer return, low pressure line.

And started on raditor lines. I am thinking about making my upper and lower coolant hoses from mild steel pipe with silicone adapters to the block and radiator . I like the idea of all my piping being powder coated to match.

No pics right now. Will try to post pics tomorrow.

Drama drama drama.. my dag on slave cylinder is literally an 8Th of an inch from the front drive shaft with everything bolted where it has to be. Time to get creative and fabricate both the fork, slave cylinder and bracket. I will have much much more to come on this topic.

As to the price of this project. Lets just say i opened a can of worms that i cant close now. Have to see it to the end.
