Had to shave the mounts a little on each side to make it fit.





If u look closely to the wastegate mounts and pushrod. You will see that I repositioned them to under the manifold to clear the frame rails. Itís the same setup as the original jwt only remade for these.

I couldnít fit any of the turbo inlet pipes so I ended up using the mishimoto silicone ducts. Waiting on new fuel rails from cjm. Took 3 weeks due to thier anodizing machine breaking. Got it overnighted. Sorry for late updates. We ended up moving to the new house but my car is still at the old house. Lol realtors been walking through the empty house and seeing me in the garage. Lol!!

I haven't gone back to the track yet. Hopefully this weekend if the weather is good and this ****ing flu pisses off. I've used a cheap ($125) tool called Scangauge 2 which plugs into the computer ad tells me everything from coolant temps to 0-60 or 60-0, checks current & pending codes, clears'em, etc. It's 1/10th off 0-60 and 2/10ths off in the 1/4. I have pics somewhere of my track time slips while at the strip along side the scangauge. Last time, I ran 3 14.6 runs. After correcting for d.a., @ 1,700 alt, 14.3. On the street I've gotten several 13.8 runs which equate to a 14 flat and many 0-60 in 5.1 seconds.
If this were a G or Z, I'd but it's a fat-assed AWD FX35 that ran somewhere in the mid 15's stock. It's light-years faster than any other naturally aspirated one before it and I still get a kick out of that.
I think an auto in a Z would d the best, followed by a G then an FX, weight being the biggest factor. A RWD Single T FX cannot seem to handle more than 425 ft lbs for too long before the trans starts to slip. If supercharged, it'll take much more power. Too much tq down low with the T's. An AWD G or FX might fair slightly better or worse. The transfer case is strong but the added traction might apply too much shock on launch. Not sure.
Engines looking great Tran!

Lol! this last few weeks have been crazy. Havenít really had time to check on the community.
We moved into the new house and I canít make it up the driveway. So I gotta raise my car to stock height just to park it at home. Got the car to idle and run pretty smooth.
At first I couldnít get it started. So, after chasing my tail for a few days, I called Haltech and they fixed my issue. Turns out it was an ecu edge setting that they had to program into the firmware. After they did that, it cranked first try. I nearly broke into tears. Lol
i wish there was a stronger vq community nearby. Iíd really like to see some of the builds in person so I can take note on how to tuck etc. Pictures donít really do me justice.

nice work on the exhaust - really came out! What product did you use?

Haltech is goofy like that sometimes … the only issue I had was my VTC not activating but it wasn't that often - happy it turned out alright.

Hows the build coming along otherwise?
