    Dustin you don't need ANY vacuum lines except to your turbo components, and of course the brake master cylinder. Basically get rid of them all. It won't make a difference on a DD, and it really gets rid of clutter.

    BTW, your intake mani is almost done

    picked this up in Chicago on Saturday; it's a big sum-bitch:





    the trans is almost as big around as whole bellhousing on the stock truck 5 speed- so it looks like next year there will be some floor pan surgery.

    in case i never posted pics, heres the rear end that's gonna get narrowed, and built up with 4.56 gears:

    Re: Dustin's turbo truck build

    im waiting on the flywheel right now, getting bored for a throwout bearing, then the motor/trans can go in the truck and i can start wiring it and getting the I/C piping mocked up. believe me, i'll keep you all posted. at the moment, im still trying to figure out how to built a mount for the P/S pump- the waterpipe goes right through where the old mount bolts up.

    and yeah scott, the trans is huge- i have a lot of cutting ahead of me...

    turns like a bitch with the p/s box and the small wheel- drove it for over a year like that. if i can hunt down a parts truck with manual steering, i'll probably swap it over- we'll see.
