    I like this how long you think this build will take? I ask because we are doing something close to this and I would like to see the results.

    We are scheduled to have the turbos plumbed early January. I would guess it will hit the dyno in March.

    We are running a bullet proof Rossler TH 210 with the Gear Vendors 6 speed overdrive. The initial dyno tests will be with the tsm Neil Chance converter, we will be upgrading to a PTC after the fire up.

    Measured up the pushrods, placed a call to Trend Performance picked them up the same day! This was at least a month long process in the past. We will be dropping it in this week to bolt in the new motor mounts.

    Looks like a cool set-up, nice alternative to the 109.
