Wow, it has been a long time.  Over the past almost 3 years. A little has been done to the car since the last update. Ive moved homes and took on 2 kids. The turbo hotside has been fabbed up. I decided to go with a ford 8.8 IRS 31 spline from a ford explorer. I used the t3 backing plates and rear coilovers that came from their q45 doff conversipn so i could run z32TT hubs. Corbeau A4 seats were mounted. The wiring harness was depinned. A fuel cell was put in. I just recently bought fuel line. Pretty much at this point is a domino effect. I need front coilovers and the front 5 lug conversion, brakes all around, wheels and tires (likely just do steelies to be able to drive it around for the time being), exhaust, axles and driveshaft, charge pipes, finish the cooling system, charge piping, and a few odds and ins just to make ot driveable. Still trying to figure out if some flex pipe should be done on the hot side and how to go about supporting the turbo to keep some strain off the pipes.

What manifolds are those? I am in the process of doing a similar swap in a ZX and I am contemplating doing an up-forward thing with modified truck manifolds. Any insight would be much appreciated! Awesome swap by the way.

Theyre home-built manifolds
