    replace your parts with these:

    MLS head gasket
    Screamin' Demon coil pack

    my opinion.

    and oil sandwich for what?
    tap the block for a turbo oil feed.
    tap the pan for oil return.

    That obx fuel rail is no good, the stock fuel rail is the best.

    Scratch the crank I just called and the manufacturer does not make them anymore.
    I think the crower 3s will be fine the car will be more of a weekend car not a everyday driver.
    Screamin demon coil it is then.
    Heres a link to the exhaust manifold what do you think?

    Negative Ghost Rider, I'd go with a cast manifold over that any day.

    Alright thanks ill hit you up when I need it.

    With a standard cast manifold my hood won't close all the way it hits the turbo and oil line that has a 90 degree on it. I may end fabricating one.

    What about a AEM fuel rail? Will that work with OBX manifold?

    But that only accepts a t3 housing right? The turbo I want is a t4, will the adater plate work with out clearance issues.

    Why are you wanting to run a T4 frame turbo? What compression are you running?

    The motor is ready to be pulled ,ive gotten everything disconnected and out of the way as you can see from the pics below. Next weekend ill be buying a engine hoist to pull it. When the motor is out I want to strip the engine bay and re paint either black or white not sure yet. One of my cv joints fell apart after taking it out, yeah it was bad as you can see but ill be geting all new cv joints, control arms ,wheel bearings, and coil overs. Well here are a few pics ill up date when the motor is out.

    That still doesn't say why you want a T4 frame turbo. With 8.8:1 and a T4 frame turbo you will have a LOT of lag.

    The 420a fuel rail can handle a lot of flow, I would just keep it stock. Maybe the guys on 2gnt could help you out a little more. If you want to upgrade your injectors to 450cc read this link.

    So I've started striping the paint from my engine bay, its comming along pretty good. I'm gonna primer it gray then paint it red. I also ordered my pistions last week JE 8:5:1 should be here some time this week of next. I already have my eagle rods, when I get the pistions my block will be headed to the machine shop. Ill update with pics later.

    looks good! i also am putting together my turbo 420a. i think i read up that the je pistons have some piston slap to them, i went with the wiesco low comp pistons. eagle rods. arp main studs. Also it looks like you were running the ic pipes from the turbo to the tb. How much psi were you running when it blew?

    Yeah I've read that to but also read that wiesco break. The gauge read 12psi 3 wot and smoke everywhere think it had to do somtning with the fuel to air ratio
