      Thanks Alvin!
      Well it was easier downloading than I thought, some of "the long & short of it..."

        Looks great. I still think you'll end up swapping down to a GT30R when you have run it for a while.

          Thanks, you think so? You may be right... but I kicked that one around for awhile, and figured since I have this small exh. housing and slightly more aggressive cams (272/264) the spool issues should make the 35R act like a 30R with a .82 -1.06 housing...

          BTW, someone asked what sealant I'm using, it is Toyota/Lexus 102 FIPG silicone p/n: 00295-00103 and hylomar I've never had my previous LS400's leak

              I forgot to take pics of the 84mm crank oiling hole mods and Pauter rods before I sealed the upper oil pan on, but I just ordered a new set of pistons for the 87mm crank, so maybe I'll suck it up and tear it down (just for Tony) if I don't find a block locally by the time the custom pistons are done in 4-6 weeks

                    Ok, a .63 A/R open T3 is not a small exhaust housing, and is capable of over 600whp. On a 2.0L EVO VIII, this particular setup makes for a sluggish low speed and midrange response, but with a lot of top end. With 2.5L the response will be a little better, but the fact remains that it is far more than enough for your power target.

                      Very sexy Rich. I cant wait to see it completed. Have you fabricated any of the turbo plumbing yet?

                        I've built a few motors in my time but this one is different to say the least... More like a motorcycle with "special NLA parts" car parts. It is definitely not for the faint of heart... or wallet.
                        Definite tip, buy all the o-rings, gaskets, slider rails & "one off" bolts first it saves a ton of time...

                        Thanks Keith! No turbo plumbing yet, but Im taking the road less travelled my setup is going to be a "remote turbo" ala www.ststurbo.com so it will reside between the end of the header and the muffler. I ceramic coated the the inside and out of the header and will wrap it as well to retain the heat over the distance the gasses has to travel. (oops, forgot to post those pics...) And I will do the same with the rest of the s.s. piping to the turbo... but Burns Stainless is handling that chore since my welding skills at the present are emergency ONLY

                              Anyone needs parts or info. Jeremiah is an invaluable asset for the S14 and most BMW's for that matter
