well I had to invent all kinds of crazy **** to make everything work today. my pcv from vc to intake took some imagination, will post pic later, but I got it working. also had to make a new separator line cause one that comes with is to short for how u have to route it, had just enough, just a half inch to short and it would not have fit. also, putting a stainless fitting into a braided stainless oil line fricking sucks. id like to murder whoever made that style. using a aluminum fitting on one end cause I need to order another stainless or maybe steel one. I routed the oil line under the water pipe, up around the turbo intake and to the turbo oil feed, far away from any heat source. closest one is 4 inch, but that's not to bad with heat shielding. will get pics of that too.

so I got her started for the first time. started right up after I built fuel pressure. sounds and runs great. made a video but didn't realize I couldn't upload it like pics so ill have to put it on youtube and post it later. I have no leaks, which is actually surprising lol. and I did reroute the oil line around the compressor side of turbo away from heat of manifold. was a lot easier actually than normal way .

I was looking at the bay and I thought it needed one more red thing to balance it out properly. figured the cover was in the right place, so why not give it a try, so I got an extra one off a wrecker just to see how it would look, I really like how it turned out as well. its a go, and I will paint the cap for the post black.
