Thanks guys. I sold my gun so I finally have the money to get this project rolling a little faster. Hoping to cut the crossmember to fit the up pipe tomorrow.

couple questions
1. is there going to be a oil cooler after the turbo to displace the now heated oil before it returns back into the motor
2. was the oil pan not accsable or not able to swap for a pan with a turbo return or do subs not do that idk
3.do those headers go under the crossmeber will there be a skid under user to not have crushed heads pipes down the road
4.didn't notice any type bracing for the headers and turbo bit is this something your gonna add only reason i mention is with the no name brand headers and the thin material that is used when 1800 deg hits them and vibrations and with the weight up high this could lead to cracks and failure down the road

1. There isn't going to be a oil cooler. Ive talked to guys who did builds similar to this and they never had an issue with this.
2. The valve cover is just closer and easier to access than the oil pan
3. I haven't gotten that far yet. I need to get the engine together before I can start worrying about that.
4. There will be bracing for the up pipe it's just not on yet.

She came over to help me work on Granny and I had my tux on under my coveralls. Got her her favorite food and dessert from the brewhouse and we had dinner and a movie in Granny. She was surprised to say the least. Hope your Valentines Day was as successful as mine!

I know I'm lucky. There's not a lot of girls that would help work on a car on Valentines Day or let me spend all my money on the car.
