If you want to drag that think to SE Indiana I can help you out. I am also helping Kevin with his pipes as well.

In not sure how a turbo mounts to these....are there turbos with v bands...?how does the crossover pipe connect? Does anyone make a paaasenger header with a crossover input and turbo mounting plate?

Turbos mount with t4 or t6 flanges. You would need to run a pipe off the headers then to a vband. Here is the Indiana banana with their new setup with twins. Might help you out.

I'm using those headers from eBay.

Had some professional head work done today by my 9 year old. He wanted to try and wouldn't leave me alone so I put him to work. I had him grind off the meat around the rocker arm bosses in the ports then I went in and smoothed it all up.

Hey, what would he charge to do a set of 317's for me? :D

A couple of updates:
I just got the Holley wiring harness and coils in the mail. Waiting for ecu still.
Bought a new alternator and pulleys and some other not so cool but essential parts lol. Hope to have that all mocked up tonight. Also finally got the home port job on the heads done. Hope to have that long block ready to go tonight. Waiting on a th400 conversion bracket from hr parts to come in so I can make sure my setup is all in the right spot. Then I will pull the mock up stuff out, permanently install motor mounts, and detail the engine bay and put the long block that I plan to use in.

I haven't seen anybody mass produce something like that. As far as welding the t4 or t6 flange on, that's a piece of cake. The headers and crossover piping are way more trouble. That's why I'm using manifolds, at least I don't have to deal with making headers.

My helper and myself got the heads on using the ls9 head gaskets.

The truck bracket and those eBay headers work together. I have decided to ditch the power steering, at least for now.
