Ronnie I didnt even realize that there was two different tial 44mm wastegates. That shorter one would help but still wouldnt fit. I have a hx40 billet 6/12 from a 8.3litre farm equipment with the BEP T3 .70ar 3" vband outlet.

What about a 45 or 90 weld elbow and another v band kit? could that maybe be a quick fix?

Can you confirm the external size on the compressor housing?

Damn, looks like that #3 plug wire is resting on your turbine housing.

Do you have to remove the turbo to get the #1 plug out?

More progress has been made today. Removed the FIC 650CC INJ and installed the FiveO 1400cc injectors. The fiveo looked taller at first but fit just fine and were the same size as the fic. Tomorrow I will try and get the throttle body installed along with the new t-stat.

Also forgot to mention that the start of yesterday got off to a bang! Reason I had started working on the car was I wanted to start it up to check the battery charged and what not. Well when I went to start it up,  it just cranked. Then finally it did fire but would not stay running more then 30 second or so. I finally got it to run long enough to get under the hood and found my fuel pressure at 100psi at idle. So I was like great my BEGI RRFPR is shot. I took it apart and cleaned it and reassembled it. Hooked it all back up because I couldnt find anything wrong with it and still 100psi at idle. So now im pissed off then the whole manifold thing ended my day.

Earlier today I hit the interwebs and found a overhaul kit for my rrfpr for $30. So that has to be ordered now. And here I was thinking I had everything to get it ready for the dyno at the end of October. Im still goin to hit it hard and try my best to get it done and somewhat tuned. I have to knock some funny funky guy back down the HP LIST !!!

Got some more work done on the car tonight. Pulled the tranny to swap out the clutch and flywheel. I unbolted the pressure plate and the disc didnt fall. I had to pry it off with a pry bar.   Tomorrow ill install the fidanza with the forced performance install kit and the ACT 2900. Still up in the air whats goin to be done with the jdl manifolf at this point

Hey Joe, thought a lower location down the pipe for the wide band is more desirable? i have mine there but with a heat sink so it doesn't get too hot.

Thats not my wideband, its just a 4 wire o2 sensor. My wideband is just about at the bottom of the downpipe just before it goes under the car. I know others that run the wideband that close to the turbo. I dont think any have had any problems with sensor failure as of yet
