    I got pretty far today moching everything up, put the drivers side turbo header is not even close to fitting, so looks like I'll have to send it back.

    This pic was taken with my phone, I'm wait for the bigger ones in my email, I'll post them up later.

    I have a Ponydown kit, everything else fit great just that one header is all f'd up.

    I hopefully am going to be able to make it tony, But at the moment it could be iffy.

    Very nice Matt...

    Do I see a BBK AFPR on the car? May i suggest putting the stock one back on? Or buying an Aeromotive. I found out the hard way that BBK's don't boost reference well. It is even stated on BBK's web site that they are not boost referenced. :(

    heres some pics, The drivers side header just needs to be tucked into the motor more. It's hitting the frame-rail before the header flang is flat on the head. I sent both headers and the cross pipe back today to be fixed.

    Looks like the dyno day out for me.
