another small update:

crank is at the machine shop. block is on it's way. yay. and, of course, still receiving some loose end parts.

I find the use of these absolutely necessary:

^Walker or Stainless Works, perhaps? Those flex lines are great, I've used them on other vehicles and saved so much time(less fabing and torn hands lol). I remember getting mine at Jegs. Very nice!

Vibrant
installation, vibration/safety... they serve a lot of purpose!
Through too much experience, they are a maintenance item and will eventually need replaced (80k miles?)... so flanges are getting welded on.
long-term reliability this time around

Good stuff mang! Those flanges look good, especially coupled with your Tial and headers. I seen you edited some posts on the last couple pages and first and added stuff, nice updates

I'm so jealous of the progress on your turbo build

Looks good though, looking forward to the rest of the build

my injectors showed up at the shop yesterday (no pics yet) but it's easy to forget how many parts are still pouring in!

this came today and had no idea what was in the box

TRD V160 mount:




pretty sure there's still a shortage of these... ?

found my tabs cracked where the turbo mounts. wish I noticed it before I had the flanges welded on



oh well... brought it to my shop today and took care of it myself. I only have MIG welders but that's just fine for the repair and a little upgrade

always wanted to brace the flanges:

Nice job on the repair, I love might/tig welding over regular stick welding, much cleaner and easier even though I do more stick than the others. Good eye on that crack though. Keep up the good work and updates!

I WISH I had experience with tig and stick! I'm jealous.
...welding large objects under time constraints is part of work so MIG is all I know

luckily, I know plenty of TIG welders who don't charge me but I had to get this done before Monday for the next step
