Did you see how much power Kenny's wagon did at that boost level?

What's a ballpark estimate on the power/torque right now, at 5-6 psi?

It's 4 right now. Ball park feels like maybe 400whp

It's nice with the smaller turbo. Instant boost and the driveability is great. Can't wait to get the tune dialed in on it. I am very happy with it so far

Great build! I have about the same mileage on mine and I also wish I did this sooner

It's a little surprising to me how many professional videos just smack the oil pump on and torque it down with no mention of alignment. I haven't experienced it myself but I've heard that bad tolerances on the rotors can make these chew themselves up over time.

Cool build and nice active thread, btw.

Do you have to pull the motor to change the oil pump?

Nah I'm going to drop the x member out, hopefully I'll have that done tonight along with getting the trailing arms modified and welding in some brackets for the coilovers in the rear

Well did the oil pump. But I think it was too little too late. Glitter factory in the pan. Oh well. Gonna moth balls the car after the suspension is back together and let it sit for a little while. I'm burnt out on it.
