Thought I share a few pics of the early stages of my Y2k 82mm turbo build. You might remember my name from the "Who hasn't gotten...." thread. I did get my c.c. to reverse charges from Bernard and now I 'm finally having my turbo custom built (for real this time). I'll post a couple more soon, this definitely won't be a full blown build thread, just wanna share my experience and to show everyone their are people that do keep there word and can build turbo setups.

Looks great.
I know you're already past the point, but you could neck that DP down to 4" w/o hurting performance and it would be easier to fit.
Keep us updated.

That's what we did once we got to the corner of the head. By the way your car is incredible, I think we like things done the same way.

Yes I am glad that you FINALLY got over the Quick Time BS. Setup looks very nice. What A/R s the ex on that turbo? What psi do you plan to run it at?

What alt/ p/s bracket is that? You have anymore pictures of it? I have my alt mounted on the pass side next to the turbo and it gets hot to say the least LOL.

Yeah, I never can remember the exact year of the cars but the Crown Vic is another vehicle the bracket can be robbed off of. Come to think of it guess a Crown Vic and Grand Marquis were essentially the same car with just a different name on them.
