    You can clock the turbo, shouldn't have any issue clocking the center housing.

    Behind the alternator is factory oil pressure sensor. Just take it out and lego the pieces together.

    I was planning on tapping into the 3/4" heater hoses with a 3/4 to 3/8 tee instead of the throttle body since the throttle body lines are smaller.
    Dorman 47112: Heater Hose Connectors - 3/4 In. X 3/8 In. X 3/4 In. Tee - Plastic https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000COB8IM

    Are there reasons why the throttle body is preferred over the heater that I am missing?

    In other news I took advantage of a mostly empty fuel tank and installed the Aeromotive 340 fuel pump. I was expecting it to be noisy but the neoprene sleeve it comes with must be doing its job

    It's a small step in the turbo build that I'm glad to be done with.

    I used my throttle body lines so I didn’t have to tap into anything. I just removed the TB and added the turbo to the loop where the TB used to be.

    Nice, I don't even use the sleeves and they're still really quiet. Why anybody still buys a Walbro (Whinebro) pump anymore is beyond me.

    They're the only pumps I've had consistently die, does that count?

    Lmao! I suppose so. So many ways with so many pumps, to be knocked off or other. I knew that response would get a laugh. Honestly, it is kind of luck of the draw, even when getting any pump through and approved vendor.

    Are you guys changing your fuel pump power wire to a thicker gauge?

    Yeah, new little harness and a relay for me. Toyota's fuel pump wiring is actually a lot better than many other brands though and can support a mild pump upgrade just fine.

    I didn't. Just soldered the old plug onto the pump. No problems so far and should be fine for the power figures I'm at

    I did the same thing, soldiered the plug to the pump.

    I also use permatex on the pump gasket and love that stuff. It doesn't really dry and can be a pain to clean up but It does the trick

    what was your reasoning to putting rtv behind the pump gasket? if you have a new rubber gasket you shouldn't need any additional sealing

    The stuff he used isn't RTV, its commonly known as hylomar, its non setting, just helps gaskets seals on rough surfaces, probably not necessary but wont hurt anything.

    I had issues with a leak for a long time. changed the gasket, didn't work. changes the pump hanger assembly and gasket and it still didn't work so I got a new tank, another new gasket and installed it all with the permatex stuff and haven't had issues since. I probably didn't need it but since I had it on hand I used it
