    I plan on dropping by sometime just to learn more about these engines and shoot the breeze. And if poking around on my truck will help you help the idi community, I'm all in!

    Hi Wes. Was going to text you but didn't want to interrupt your family time.

    Plus a bump for your business

    I apologize for not getting that pedestal sent out (busy time at work) but I'm glad I didn't yet. I found the other parts to the turbo. I've got the air filter box and intake hat. Not pictured is the cold side compressor housing to the ATS turbo (has ATS cast into the aluminum). Let me know what parts you're interested in, or all, and I can send them this Saturday.

    Not disturbing at all, I’m still working away in the shop just stopping for a brew break, porting two sets of heads tonight.

    If I had the cold side housing and intake hat I could work on an intake kit to replace the stock box. Really appreciate you sending this stuff over for the R&D, you’ve been very generous. Looking forward to getting started on your engine ;Sweet

    I appreciate all you do! Haha you're not looking as for as I am lol. This will be the first time in my life I've ever had extra cash to be able to do something like this; and it's been a dream.

    And pedestal/drain as well, correct?

    Do you have any plan in the works for making an intercooler kit for the factory turbo set up?

    Yes, I have made a few in the past and I’ll post some pictures of what they look like. I’m working on getting some jigs built so it’s easier to mass produce, everything fits behind the stock hood latch and supports just requires some trimming of the header panel and the corners of the core support. The intercooler kit will come with my intake kit, as well as my intake hat which should be releasing very soon.
