    Well I might as well document the whole process. Im going to be running 10psi with 450cc injectors. Sorry for some of the shitty pics.... damn cell phones.

    Day 1: Tore down engine bay including intake plenum and valve cover.
    [​IMG]
    Day 2: Removed rest of plenum and replaced fuel filter. Set TDC
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Day 3: Removed cams and head.
    [​IMG]
    Day 4: Rebuilt the turbo, got 450cc injectors cleaned, balanced and flowed. Stock is on the left.

    Day 5: Removed headers, collector and downpipe. Mounted my intercooler. Replaced valve cover gasket and sparkplug seals.

    Anyone know if it would be wise to replace the cat with a test pipe? Less backpressure= more power?

    Yes, the bigger the pressure differential across the tubine side of the turbo the better.

    Airesearch m27/ Garrett T3. 10psi for the time being, the wastegate will only hold 12 psi.

    Nice Work! :D

    Being a Diesel Head I'm not familar with that turbo, Is there a comprssor Map for it?

    I know of a very easy low cost fix for the wastegate when and if you decide you need more boost:headbang:

    Also are you going with a thicker head gasket to lower compression any?

    Im not too sure about the compressor map. But yeh, im going with a 1.5mm Cometic HG and ARP headstuds.... if they show up sometime, ordered 2 weeks ago and they have yet to show.

    Anyway UPDATE!:

    Wired in new injector clips, fabbed my test pipe with downpipe and BOV adapter, tapped my oil feed line.
