As mentioned before I'm process of installing on 88 convertible. Using stock k member and some after market engine and tranny mounts.
The turbo required a lot of cutting of where the stock air box was and passenger side headlight. The turbo's air filter goes in the fender.
My down pipe to the y where the tail pipes go to was one piece. It was fun getting it in. Head to remove passenger header.
You will want the march alternator bracket. If you are keeping ac, you'll need to re route the ac lines.
The headers and cross over pipe cleared most everything pretty well. I re routed my starter cable and am doing something with my fuel lines.
I used the arp 5/16 head header bolts. It's not any worse than other headers. I'm not sure if studs would be better, the small heads is what you want.
You'll need a shorter oil filter or a 90 degree adapter. There was a post about shorter oil filters a while back.
I was able to drop my motor in with headers on motor. Could have had cross over pipe on also. I didn't have power steering bolted to engine when I did this.
I'm not sure why but the inter cooler did not clear my LX bumper cover. That was the worst part about not having directions.
