The problem is ...I cant stop buyin stuff for the car. My most recent purchases - A set of 60lb injectors, new injector harness, angled IAC adapter, torque strap, TT chip and emissions too, biggie filter adapter, oh yeah and a 23 Stock Location Intercooler from G-Body along with the PTE GT3255E turbo.

Just waiting for it all to arrive .... :headbang:

Not looking forward to the credit card bill though :dunno:

Turbo replacement

Removed the stock turbo tonight ....

Quick question , is there a stock gasket from the up-pipe to the turbo ? I didnt have one so I wanted to ask. I ordered the copper one w/ the new turbo. Also noticed the ground/ lower turbo bracket bolt was very loose ( little more than finger tight). Would this have caused any problems ?

Thanks

From the factory there is no gasket between the turbo and header flange.

If that lower bolt was loose (that's a ground), then yes... it could have caused some problems. Be sure you clean the bolt and the block off real good before putting it back on.

Good luck with the car.
