well picked the car up.. runs good i guess... turbo is real real real quiet. even when you boost it you can barly hear the whistle. but there is a huge diffrence. i guess its because of the hair line crack that is making the turbo spool so slow.

It would have been easier when you had the turbo off.. Take out the 3 turbo bolts again and unbolt your downpipe from the turbo. You have 6 bolts on the head and 2 on the crossover. Should slide out from the top. I/2 hour off and 1/2 hour on.

If you have to use gaskets for some bizarre reason use the Felpro 1400 green ones.

Not the Chebby ones. loser
