Thank you, Uncle Sam, for the Stimulus Check!
It's given me what I need to start this again!

I'm not even going to bother with the old engine, I am getting a complete new one, and a new turbo (K14 (stock) this time! No more messing with ill fitting parts!)!

I've got a four-week wait for the motor to get here. I've just about got all of my seals and sauces and turbos and cornbread, so it's now a matter of organizing the transport to the shop!

After the old motor comes out, and the work is done, I plan on shipping the old motor back to the builder and just get it the F*CK out of my life!
NO autopsy!

Wish me luck!

I may be inviting trouble, but I'm getting a 0km rebuild from the same company.

So, I posted this in another thread, but I would like to mount an EGT sensor and gauge, but need to find one.
Also, Gnarlodious, could you remind me of the larger exhaust set-up you did? I think I might try that out, too.
