Well the day finally came when all the turbo bits ive been collecting started finding them selves lined up on the bench an one by one getting put on and assembled.

So far a basic tear down has been done to access a few things , the BP26 manifold and VJ-20 are currently sitting on the head studs so some things can be lined up easily , Once i drain the coolant i can remove the BP05 water line and install the GTX water line with the proper coolant feed spout for the VJ-20 , i need to make up a return line to tie into the heater core hose.
i still need to pick up a fitting for the oil drain for the oil pan.
Ill be using a set of MX6 GT injectors , RX-7 vaf ( to be retuned ) , BP26 ecu

So far progress is small but Rome wasn't built in a day.
Ill post up some pics as i go

Shopping list for this week:

VJ-20 Gasget ( IHI )
Down Pipe Gasket ( T3 )
Banjo bolt ( for oil feed line )

** Update ** April 20 /2010
