    Here starts the adventure. This has been done a few times, but the documentation has been sparse at best. So this build will have a full parts list and prices (and hopefully dyno info) included.

    Nice! Do you have a plan or just kinda winging it based on what is available as you go? I have never done any research on the turbos, much less on a 3fe as I don't have one.
    Looking forward to second guessing your every move even though I have no idea about any of it.

    I have a loose plan at the moment. I will also be swapping the dual factory cats and resonator out on this build. I think that I have the extra fuel injector and controller needed for the build worked out. Plumbing is going to be a little by the seat of my pants. Oil supply and water cooling still need work. Intercooler placement might also prove tricky. Oh and hood vents, gotta have hood vents.

    Ordered my blow off valve. Protuninglab.com part number bob-hrs-rd normally 109.99. Holiday sale for 49.99. And a oil catch can PN oct-bk from the same supplier for 24.99.
    Still waiting for word from the turbo doc. The holidays are probably going to slow the build down a bit.

    Running tally: $134.98

    What are your plans for a manifold?

    That is going to be a home brew. Need the turbo back for mock up.

    If your fab skills are close to your camp cooking skills then I predict fine results :cool:
