    Hot Side:
    Time to pull the headers/exhaust/intake out and start installing new uprades

    I used 1" Cool It Thermo Tec black wrap on the turbo manifold and coated it with Cool It Thermo Tec after wrapping it, supposed to last longer and the coating looks good on any metal, in my experience the zip ties sucked big time since the system they have to ajust them doesnt let u make a tight fit so i went ahead and got regular hose clamps and just coated them after installing them for a cleaner look




    Stock driver side manifold sand blasted and coated with 2000f as well

    Crossover pipe was bolted on, spot welded and fully welded after, i used 2" Cool It Thermo Tec black wrap and coated it as well

    Permatex 81878 Ultra Copper High-Temp RTV Silicone Gasket Maker was used to seal the driver side manifold and crossover pipe

    wastegate installed after crossover pipe was done

    Intercooler mount:
    I had a hard time trying to find info on mounting a intercooler behind the grill and rout the 3" piping on the sides with a 04+ 34" radiator, thanks too "smokeshow" he gave me some tips, it can be done keeping the pcm and battery on stock location and YES its tight




    Little welder wish made it happend lol

    Passenger side:
    To make room for the 3" pipe i had to take the ac gas out, weld a small extencion in and refill the ac again




    Intercooler Piping:




    Welding: (First i tried mig welding, later had everything rewelded with a tig welder, looks much cleaner)

    Mig Welding

    Vs. Tig Welding

    Good looking truck. Nice job on the turbo install. How much work went into converting to return style?

    Looks really clean! I just have one concern; Where you mounted the wastegate isn't ideal. The wastegate won't be nearly as efficient if it were placed downstream of both manifolds.
