Well while i am waiting for my turbo to soak in my mystery solution i started on the crankshaft sensor and cam shaft sensor. Both of these will allow me to use my stock tach.

This is how I did mine.

I used a 5.9 manifold cut down also. But I have an HE341 turbo installed.

If you want to check out my build here a link.

Ksilovich.. You make a great point about the turbo up so high. I am also worried about it. I chose the manifold that had a complete 90 bend in it rather than the 45. I had both in front of me and called shawn at Jeff Daniels and he suggested the 90. I like how yours sets down lower. Just have to wait and see what happens. Worst case. I get to cut and weld more on another manifold.

I am also thinking about running a snorkel kit for a YJ from ARB. The YJ snorkel exits the drivers side fender. I cant use my passenger side fender cause that is where my 4 inch exhaust is gonna exit. Much like marstache. ( spelling is prolly way off) i was very impressed by his build and love the way his jeep looked with that stak

UPDATES UPDATES UPDATES

So the last couple posts I was waiting for my mystery solution to work its magic. WELL IT DIDNT WORK. So i contacted Stacy and Columbus Diesel Supply told him my dilemma. He told me to bring the turbo on in and he would get it apart. I was very skeptical because i already took it to one shop and they laughed at me.

To my relief Stacy came through and got the exhaust housing seperated. Fast forward to this morning. I attempted to clean and clock the turbo so it would work for my application. Well i am no turbo builder for sure.. some how i got the exhaust housing on crooked and the fan blades where hitting bad!

So again i went back to Columbus Diesel Supply for Stacy to rescue me. Stacy and another mechanic saved my as* . They took my turbo apart again sand blasted my housing and cleaned the center housing and re installed the housing FOR FREE!!!!!!!! I couldnt believe it..

The turbo spins like a brand new one. I couldnt be happier.

So feeling that my karma bank was now empty i figured i better go get parts like oil filter, fuel filter , thermostat , front cover gasket and the like. Well luck strikes again. Turns out there is a Cummins dealer about 15 minutes away... I also stopped at NAPA and picked up some cummins beige spray paint in a rattle can.
