Hey Tom, great build BTW. Very well and tastefully done sir. You gonna go with a 445 trans for this or have you decided? Not sure what your running now.

I got 4.05 , 445 is to hard to get. The s257 wont be as hard on the trans as the zfr.

I'll have my 4.45 up for sale soon if your interested. The 445 will compliment your setup quite well in terms of power delivery. Regardless, i would like to see how well the 4.05 works for you with that setup before changing anything.

Finished making my oil drain, if anyone is running a a big turbo and wanting a an10 braided. Stainless line with an ends, on the s257 and probably 256 and 259 the line needs 1 45 degree end one straight and has to be exactly 10.5 inch from end to end. Can get the an10 drain fitting from treadstone

I did originally have a braided nylon line but it didnt work out, i used the reusable end from that line to make myself a custom braided stainless line which worked well once i clocked the center section so it was pointed straight down, i had it angled back a bit before which made it impossible to use stainless, but all fixed now

they would have to run your setup exactly. The reality of it is that different exhaust housings can vary and place the center cartridge in different spots. The fittings are one thing but the length should be determined by the person in the car unless they run the same setup.

I have used a multitude of different lines. Even cheaper russell pushlock hose with thermal wrap. -10 is the way to go for sure for turbos of this size.

ya this is true. only for 257 on zzp manifold then I guess lol. But I still recommend making ur own stainless braided line with the reusable fittings, very easy and cheap to do. can find good prices at summit. best part about using braided stainless rather than just rubber, the stainless line pushes the oilpan side fitting down so there is no movement or risk of leaks. you have to screw it onto the fitting before u put the fitting in the drain hole.

amazon.ca had it for 266 for enough for entire car, and now its down to 212. some people may think its dumb, but lets face it, especially if u have to drive gravel, there are some noises u just get tired of hearing. even the exhaust hum can get annoying on long drives. so no I got the option, open the window and hear what I like, or close it and have it quieter if I want.

Valid reasons, I purposely don't drive on gravel and am lucky I don't have to. My exhaust drone is pretty quiet inside the car, as I'm running a resonator and a muffler but I understand the need.

That's a pretty good price. Totally worth it, I need to do drop some funds into some dynamat and the foam they sell also, double layering it really makes a difference
