Recommended Posts

So here it is... long time buddy had this guy for a while and wasn’t doing anything with it... It belonged to a few friends, I kinda always wanted it... one day it fell into my lap for next to nothing so I decided to do something w/ it.. got it some un broke axles and got rid of the bull$#!& cobbled lift that was put in owners ago... then got it running...

Phase one was just for proof of concept used a swap meet $12 Buick turbo and some summit u bends and connector pieces...very little money was invested initially  I ended up doing some measuring and the trailer bed idea was born... Sears Roebuck utility trailer sacrificed its last as a trailer and got welded on

Then this happened! Ebay $96!!  The black marker is the a/r specs on the first turbo.. the blue pen is the t04b that’s my current setup...it’s size is near perfect for the 4.0 imo and I'm 99% positive that with my planned mod it will be perfect... I think I can improve flow to and from the turbo and clean up the charge pipe flow a bit.. as well as the internal mods that will be disclosed as they get installed ... stay tuned for that... in the mean time enjoy these photos till I get time to upload more1C85F28A-5394-4A8B-965D-02DB898E140D.jpeg.2eb060a400ce51791c3c984ff1cfac0b.jpegb
