It's a kit from e-sales on e-bay. A pair of T3/T4 turbos with intercooler, oil cooler and a bunch of other goodies. It wasn't as complete of a kit as advertised, but with alot of massaging it's coming together. I switched from stock heads, to 195 alum. heads and a GT40/Lightning intake. I have no clue what it is going to produce, but I'm hoping for high 300's or low 400's. Fingers crossed.
Roger you are my hero! I was wondering if those ebay turbo headers would fit the coupe engine compartment. Did you have to get out the BFH (Big F'in Hammer) to get them to fit?
One warning on the ebay turbo headers; with the naked eye the header flanges look smooth but the surface needs to be trued with flat file, belt sander or machine shop to keep them from leaking. I've had mine on and off many times and used many gasket sets.

That looks great Roger, you have been hard at work.
Is the shroud and fan behind the x frame for the intercooler?
Body looking good, what color are you going with?
Ordered and delivered 9th of June 08, Coupe enthusiast, owner, builder and soon to be thrashing the gears. Are we there yet?
Tagged and on the road 24th of May 2011, even more fun than advertised.
The fan will draw air from underneath the car. It sits between the cross-frame and the X-member. The shroud is homemade. I've spent countless hours on the bodywork. I lost count of how many times I've gone over each section till I felt I had it right. I've been using black primer over the areas, as it really shows off any imperfections. I'll be using light gray primer, then going with white and double blue stripes. The rear and headlight buckets will be black.
Not even sure i want to open think... I'm guessing the blue footed variety??
I had to look and I was right...
