Info is in signature and it's pretty straight forward......delete ac, rotate both exhaust and compresser housing, chop speed daddy's header pipe and up pipe and weld them up with a v band so you can easily switch to a t3/t4 turbo if wanted...on my previous build I made a 3 inch downpipe similar to gbodys for the 84 cars and chopped it down....the oil drain line I used the existing hole in front of the block of engine, I modded the brackets to mount a 1987 gn intercooler and a 87 intake....I'll post more pics as the progress goes but it's pretty simple actually and gets rid of all the piping when converting to intercooled
