Here are two shots of my (formerly) n/a truck with the turbo installed. Both manifolds are stock from a Trooper that had thrown a rod. It is hard to see the manifolds due to all the plumbing.

The conversion was done in 1995-96 with 110k miles on the truck. It has 202k miles now and has had no problems with the engine. I have worked on the tranny a few times.

Paul, is that an additional oil separator in the line that vents crankcase gases back to the intake?

That thing looks like it was cleaned with a toothbrush. It is one thing to have a clean install, but that engine bay is unbelievable!

Just curious about three things.

1. Are you plumbed to a front mount intercooler.
2. Is your intake charge to the turbo coming off of the driver's side and if so where is your air filter.
3. What type of piping did you use (the gray pipe)

Hey, you guys are noticing too many things :wink:

Jack-- Yes, that is a secondary oil separator. Both separators are drained back to the crankcase via the vacuum pump.

ronster-- Yes, the two gray pipes (2 1/4 inch aluminum) are feeding an intercooler up front. The cooler is from a Saab 9000.

-- The air cleaner is in the grey canister on the passenger side close to the firewall.

Ray-- The extra sensor in the thermostat housing is a temperature sensing thermistor to control the two speed electric fan.

And, I do sometimes use a tooth brush and lots of other stuff.

That is a very well executed, and well maintained project, Sir.

Beautiful work!

That is an install worth making into a kit. Thank you for this submission. It was the goal of this thread.
