    @Thewespaul , I'm trying to get all of these things together so I can bring it down to you. I was just going to put it together and bring it to tune but I think I'm going to get everything but the turbo put together and bring it on to you

    Let me know if you need any diagrams for specific components, I’ve got about 70 pages of diagrams from the firewall back so need to narrow it down a bit. 3146D23F-9EAA-4085-A783-ACA1DF895F6E.jpeg 4477D8DC-4BD4-4F1D-A06F-311BB97A1563.jpeg B368299B-86D8-45EE-8000-643A4CB4634A.jpeg B5EECC40-5DEC-47F1-9677-CDF28D666EC2.jpeg 2C19675E-4A5C-4923-8396-6E91D138502A.jpeg

    Were you wanting to upgrade the turbo then tune it?

    Yes sir probably get you to ceramic coat my manifolds and down pipe and if you can I'll get that ps exhaust and let you weld the vband clamp part on it. I'm trying to separate all the different parts of the harness and separate them within one loom so I know exactly what everything goes to. In these pics I've got the brake, trans and wire lighting separated, just want to make sure I'm not missing any other wires that may be back there that I'm not thinking of.

    I know as usual this is a long shot but does anyone know where any of the van brackets or pumps with the adapter is? I'm desperate, as is everyone else, I know.

    Finished this harness back to the tank and installed my a/c power steering pump bracket, hopefully I'll get some other accessories on manana.

    Going to pick up my body parts from powder coat this week. Getting ready to start mocking things up. Need feedback on these fans and radiator set up. Both mishimoto, I'm going to have plate plate cut out to bolt to the radiator as a shroud but what are yalls thoughts on how well it will cool?

    It depends on what you're doing. Wes doesn't even run a fan on his Shop truck at all unless he's going to be pulling kind of heavy. If you're pulling heavy in the summer, running the A/C, it may not cool enough. Mel has electric fans on one of his trucks too. They're off of a Ford Taurus IIRC. I'm planning to run electrics on my truck after the turbo goes on.

    @Thewespaul
    They don't look that big but they're 12" fans, I guess I could always order a couple of 8 or so to go in the blank spaces
