Everything looks great! Oh and by the way a 2g knock sensor will not work with the 1g ecm. It will show way different values.

yah i know thanks! I just got off work now time to start turning some wrenches! Im missing parts tho i just found out. The Bolts to my Flywheel are stretched. And i didnt get injector seals /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead.gif And the bolts to my FP manifold to turbo are longer so i may have to put the stock mani on for now. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bawling.gif looks like Extreme PSI is going to have my paycheck again. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/uhh.gif

Got the car running! Just ran into a few snags tho. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bawling.gif The radiator was leaking but i didn't care i just wanted to see if it would start and it did. And there was a lot of smoke coming out the tail pipe. It was from the turbo it has a blown seal. Probably wasn't used to all that pressure from my new oil pump and gears. So i Bought a AFCO radiator and a MHI Evo 3 16g. I didn't want to buy a turbo just yet because i wanted to save some cash and buy a 6262 down the line but after i buy a trans. Then the clutch would not go into gear, so i was pretty bummed and i pretty much wanted to drop a grenade in my engine bay and torch it. But i didnt...i bought a new clutch master cylinder and that didn't fix it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead.gif WTF!??! So i said screw it and bought a stock clutch and dropped the trans again and put that in. So tonight i will bleed the clutch and hopefully i can drive off. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/uhh.gif My buddy is going to let me borrow his 14b in the meantime. But i definitely got big plans for the car and its come a long way. The turbo will be here tomorrow and I'm pretty excited. I'm going to hold off on big power for a while just because i want a built transmission and the costs involved with switching my whole exhaust setup. But i definitely feel my short block can take some abuse.
