Yes, sorry everyone. WELL let me get started I have got my truck back and it in fact isn't done. Ill try not to bash this piece of s%#* shop to much ill just say that after 9 damn months of waiting for this kid to finish up the piping. I ended up goin for my truck and getting my money back. Now I'm doin it myself with, well with the help of my brother in law and a local muscle car guy who built his twin turbo setup himself on a monte carlo ss. Ive ordered header flanges from stainless steel headers mfg, a bunch of schedule 10 pipe bends and straights in different sizes from ace stainless, vband clamps, a couple of flex joints and other stuff all in 304. So now we will be doing a log style manifold with swept runners instead of just goin straight into the log body.
My new transmission should be here by the weekend a 46re BUILT to handle the extra ponies the turbo will be making. Again done by Chris and his guys at performanceinjectionequipment.com. Will be ordering an electric fan and shroud kit from him in the next couple weeks too.

An update, the flanges, flex couplers vband assemblies and some rectangular pipe came in and is all at the welders.
The trans and head gaskets came in last week. Soon as the converter comes in we'll stab it in.
I got to pulling the old heads and when I got them off I could see my 4yr old re grind cam is all chewed up. So now I'll add a cam to the list of parts I need still! I guess I can't say I'm completely bummed. I will get a good turbo cam now but it's gonna cost me so I'll be set back on that.
Here are some more pics of stuff for now lol.
