    MAN!! I really appreciate that!!

    Moving slowly but surely on the LQ4 build. Parts are coming in and Ive been mocking it up. Just ordered the Holley 12-1600-2 fuel pump and that will finish off the fuel distribution. All I need are the -10an and -8an black fuel line. My club bro Jerry blessed me with a clean heavy gauge bracket to mount the Holley pump. Heres a few pics of the progress...

    Internals looked great. For now this will be a stock bottom end turbo build BUT with ARP bolts(rods, head studs)

    LS Brackets "Turbo" bracket setup. Im running the Hooker manifolds. This setup is trimmed so you can clear the bottom area. The alt is dropped 3/4" and the power steering pump is moved up so it clears the frame.. This setup works with my 2010 ls 3 water pump (truck spacing.

    Got my MTI racing manual tensioner. They were cool and send a plastic pulley out so i could mock it up-free of charge. Also ordered a Metco pulley. Waiting on that to show up

    New 145 amp alt chowed up and I painted it all up and mocked it up with tape. The billet power steering wheel is from Dirty Dingo. It will be coated black when the Metco wheel shows up. Just painted the brackets to see how it all looks. I may also paint the insters red..
