    Good call on the GM tranny.

    I'm looking forward to how this goes.

    oh cool, you did get the wheels and did the mirrors already. WIth a turbo its pretty easy to have a good exhaust note and not to loud. Catalytic converters are pretty expensive, so I'd just run a glass pack towards the front, then a pretty lookin straight through glass pack in the rear too.

    Jeez Dustin, youre going to town on this thing...i 2nd coltons idea of a glass pack. i had his talon and he had a glasspack (cherrybomb) welded in basically as a resonator and then a ebay muffler.it sounded really good but wasnt annoying either and id imagine would be cheap to build also

    Re: Dustin's turbo truck build

    started tearing into it a bit tonight- got most of the stuff in front off and pulled the A/C condensor out:




    i just couldnt help myself:



    with the A/C condensor out, there is actually enough room to fit the intercooler behind the stock hood latch and support with no modifications. after looking at it, the actual radiator support looks thick enough that i think i can modify it and actually fit the A/C condensor sandwiched between the radiator and intercooler- but that will be a much later project...

    Re: Dustin's turbo truck build

    been a little lazy uploading pics, but heres a few more. the engine and tranny are out. here's a little tip- if you dont pull the shifter first, the trans wont want to come out very easily...

    i need a power washer, stat!

    i cant wait to eliminate all of these vaccuum hoses:


    probably not what youd expect to see parked next to my truck:

    Re: Dustin's turbo truck build

    so does anyone have any idea what this box on my inner fender is? a lot of the vaccuum and vent hoses go into it, and it plugs into the truck's stock wiring. id really like to get rid of all of it if it isnt necessary.

    looks like your purge solenoid for the charcoal canister.... idk if you need it at all..... im sure you know what the charcoal canister does, with a build like yours i dont think you will need to worry about fuel vapors

    idk, but im having fun watching the progress. And seeing all the parts your truck uses that are the same as my cars. Its neat, its like you have a conquest truck basically.
