Thank you! I actually changed my mind; I stayed with Boostlab but picked up the BL58X and got the T51R compressor housing option. The shop I help out at has been installing some Boostlab turbos and I want to show my support for a company that my shop trusts and get their name out there just that little bit more. That, and I decided I'm not just doing this half ass- this is full send

I appreciate that! With the FRS as its base, it can only be excellent

Little update-

Lots of parts in!

Engine gasket set
ARP head studs
KillerB oil pickup
Fluidampr pulley
Boostlab BL58x (.82 hotside, T51R compressor housing mod)
PTP turbo blanket
4 direct injectors fresh from seal replacement and cleaning by FIC


I changed turbos because honestly I want this build to be everything I've got. I've gone through too much to just have it be OK. This turbo should be good for 500+ on pump gas at around 25psi. I plan to sit low to mid 400s

I won't be upgrading the transmission right now. Replacements are cheap and power can be backed off if transmissions and axles gets wasted too quickly.

Still needed-
Timing chain kit
I think that's it. We'll see

Before you put sealant in the oil pan and assemble it, install the pickup and set the oil pan on dry to make sure it fits. Mine was made way too long and I made a mess of the sealant and had to redo it.
