yep, i would also check the bearings to make sure they are in good shape, using the ct27 you will be putting alot more strain on these


check with d1alltrac for the pics of the rod that went through the block, if i remember the bolt was missing and the rod was completely broken.

ok i just checked the bearing and they look great.... my question was is there a special tool to press the rod bearings out and press the arp bolts in or would i have to remove the pistons and take them to a machine shop?

My quick two cents:
For the metric threaded rod, I got a section of 3/8" plain steel rod from Home Depot and made my own studs. Works good so far...

One quick question about the little hose that goes in the turbo next to upper radiator hose. In my car, seems the previous owner blocked that hose and didn't hook it up to the turbo, should I hook it back up? or should I just leave it how it is?

lol it's ok. When I posted that question I didn't know anything about my car, but after having to replace the turbo, I found out that the previous owner had done the twin-entry swap already, so I'm guessing that hose isn't needed.

I run the water lines with my twin entry swap. If you dont push the turbo that hard then you will be fine w/o using them but just remember that the turbo was designed to be water cooled.

Well, I'm running the st185 water lines, so those feed my turbo some coolant.

Thats even better. You really have to hack up the 165 ones to make them work.
