    Thats the kit I bought and going to use my Garrett gt35r with a t4 and try and use my tial 38mm wastegate, if it fits. The one with the kit is a tiny 38mm wastegate. Turbo was a T4 with a .68ar, mine on the gt35r is .63ar.

    Wow 24psi thats alot, Im just looking for 10-15psi, careful with those head studs , I went back to stock they stuck too far out , the header flange was hitting them so couldn't get them to seal to the head.

    I sent them out to get coated, took off the oil pan to get a new bung added, and by the looks of it i should start on it next week. I also added 105# springs to help with valve float(still on stock cam)

    Good to hear, yeah those 105lb springs are pretty good, I've been running 130lb for awhile with the VS cam, will be going with a double roller and the ST5 cam next year. Should be getting my port/polished intakes next week. I won't be adding the turbo till next year probably. Need to paint the Camaro then engine work, then I'll install the turbo. How much was it to coat them? Jet hot gave me a quote of $900 to coat them in 2500 degree coating.

    The passenger header hits the HVAC case, I dont have A/C so It wasnt a big deal for me to destroy it.
