    This statement is almost Valid. I'm in need of wheels and tires, those are the last and only things the Regal needs to be out on the road legal.

    This is my .69 Trim Frankenstein turbo in it's current state which is blown (caught it early Thank you Jesus) So I'll be upgrading to a Precision PT51 soon for supporting 600hp. This will be a smart move and it will also get rid of the small stock turbine on the old Turbocharger (people who were at Rodheavers Shop @ the July dyno day will remember the White-HOT Glowing headers)

    Okay! Got the Upgrade turbo today(Precision PT53) so that meant stopping on all the other projects for a moment to yank the old turbocharger off the Regal to see what needs to be done.
    I'll have to remove the DP and match it to the huge WG hole and turbine outlet on the new equipment and get half of a Garrett compressor cover clamp and bolts( the old turbo's will not fit)
    PT53 on the left my old Frankenstein turbocharger on the right:

    The old turbo header gasket(junk) had been leaking the entire time before. I'm going to get one of those solid copper ones or run none at all.

    A few more things I'll replace or upgrade soon: Fuel Pump and Regulator. I'll use the old pump and regulator for a separate stand alone fuel system for my Nitrous so I won't be borrowing any fuel that is destined for the engine.
    a Built stageII 200-4r with a 2500-3000 stall converter and 4 new tires and 2 extra wheels for my slicks.

    Nice size snail you have there. Do you have to go to larger piping?

    Hi Cam, No the compressor cover is the same in and out size as before. Just have to make the downpipe holes the same size and the new turbo, I left enough material in the flange just for that reason when I made it.

    Update: Feb12th Got a SCE copper turbo gasket in and it's perfect and it was a DEAL. I ordered all the fuel system upgrade components this morning and will see all that mid next week. I'll keep chipping away with my side work and get back on this full time soon and finish modding the DP and get the upgrade turbocharger installed, Probably first week in march I'll be ordering built 2004r and good converter to upgrade the TH350C I'm using now. I'll be changing little to nothing else with the rest of the combo at this time
