More turbo install stuff !!!!

 Well my camera took a shit so I haven't been keeping up with my antics of late. I have been busy though. Turns out the Turbo kit I had didn't actually fit my KZ, I suspect it was made for a Suzuki, so I had to make a few adjustments and make a few pieces.  I also was missing an intake manifold and all the gasketing along with all the oil and drainage lines for the turbo itself. I had to drill and tap the oil galley next to the oil pressure sensor and modify the hole size to force more oil to the turbo and a little less to the top end, like plugging the main in smallblock chevy to send more to the crank and less to the rockers.

I had to make this new crosspipe from the header to the exhaust side of the turbo housing, also this short little 3" exhaust, should be able to hear that hairdrier spin up real swell!

Also made up this inlet manifold for the HSR Mikuni I'm using. There wasn't near as much room in there as I thought so I had to bring it out past the drain fitting.  I'm also going to have to make a bracket to hold the carb out there in this precarious position. Along with an electric fuel pump mount and throttle cable situation, shouldn't be long now!!!
Sorry about the cell phone pics but there just going to have to do for the time being cuz I'm saving up for SEMA! Maybe I'll get a new one there.
