Happy Thanksgiving!

Well I had the first problem with the turbo kit yesterday although it turned out not to be as bad as I thought.  Got on the throttle hard getting on the highway and after the shift from 3rd to 4th I had no turbo pressure.  The turbo still spooled but sounded strange. When I got it home I poped the hood and found the blow off valve laying on the other side of the engine.  The set screws had worked their way out and the valve blew off the charge pipe.  Some #5 .7 bolts took care of it.

After 2500 miles everything is still holding up great.   I still havent done anything with the lower charge piping.  It's hanging a bit close to the road.. tomorrow maybe I'll take the front off the car and see if I can move some things around a bit.  I'll be sure to take some pictures.
