Well it took us 8hrs, but that's only because Murphy's Law was in full effect
I'm pretty sure that we misplaced every bolt and every tool in the garage at least five times
I tore an O-ring on the second drain line while placing it in the block and had to go to the hardware store to get another one.....that alone took an hour. We just made a bunch of stupid little mistakes that we wouldn't make the next time around. I'm confident that the next time we could have everyting together in about 5hrs.
I just want to make clear that all the mistakes were on my end. Like I said before, all the parts in Shane's kit fit exactly where they were supposed to fit
Oh ok cool that's not bad at all. This is killing me because I'm saving up for a kit right now then tax times comes and kicks me back down.

It takes about 4 hours of shop time to do it all.
How much does this cost to do? After doing all this to the turbo is an external gate just a waste of money? I was going to do my kit with a tial 44mm waste gate I talked to you about it before and you said I could send it to you.
