She is almost ready to go. Got kinda behind during the holidays. My guess is about 2 days worth of work and she will be ready! Hopefully Satan and I can do Jan 13th if everything goes as planned.

Only problem is she wont be registerd or inspected yet.... :cry:

Just got a call from a new local st185 owner! He noticed I was selling my old 3sgte on craigslist. Hes living near Plano and just moved down from new york. He told me his name but I cant remember what it was.. lol

Anyways he said he was on this site. Its always great to get a new member here in DFW! Hes coming by later to look at my car and all the extra parts and stuff I have so I will see if hes up for a meet as well.

This is coming up alot sooner than I was figuring on but I maybe able to get satan running by then. I have a friend on the 3si.org (3000gt website) that will be helping me finish up all the loose ends and get her up and going!

She wont look like much untill you open the hood. :smokes:
Havnt touched anything but the engine bay.

hm, maybe. i don't think i'll be able to give an accurate eta. i just know it'll be sometime before noon. when i get there i'm going to want some time to talk to the guys at the shop, make sure everything's kosher, go for a drive, etc. then probably get some lunch at what a burger. how far away are you guys from ats?

Same about an hour.

I have about 1 full day left of work on satan then I should be able to do the first trun over. I still have to wait on a few parts from toyota which seems to take forever.

Anyone know how to clock a td06? Or a link to a how to? I need to clock it down for the front mount but I have never done anything like that before. Other wise I would have to drive with the top mount and the CS hood.. Not good.. :doh:

if you have to drive with a top mount, skip the RC hood unless you wanna fry the motor.

i think you need a bracket to clock the turbo - try searching & you should come up with several threads about it, even if they are about a ct26, it should give you some idea.

not necessarily. if you have an internal wastegate then you'll have to clock, but most of the newer kits come with external tials. all you have to do is grab some snap ring pliers, or maybe even needle nose if you are desperate, and release the tension of the snap ring on the compressor housing long enough to swing the housing down. after you have it in the desired place, be sure you leave the ring clips someplace where you can easily access them with the turbo on the car. make sure everything is snug, and you're done!
