They better or I'm raising some heck... Lol... The last set we built for my car really helped... We're just moving the turbos a bit due to the bigger size... And we sold the old ones... Old... Lol, they had less than 100 miles on them...

Haha, that's an understatement.

Are y'all going to wrap the headers this time too?

Updated pics from the shop.. More tomorrow...

This shows the turbo on the drivers side installed, and the boost piping running forward....

The pic with the two big pipes is looking at the car from the drivers side front looking back towards the DS front wheel... The big pipe closest is the pipe going from the intercooler to the intake...

And while I haven't separated from my old company yet, I was offered a position with the new company and I am going to accept the offer...

I spoke with my current supervisor today at length... We both laughed about my company making a counter offer... But he is a good guy and I want to do right by him... He is checking on some possibilities, and knows I don't want to go to Nicaragua. It has nothing to do with the country or the work... If I go next week, as scheduled, then I'll only be there a week and they will have to fly me home to testify in court on their behalf... In this situation I will probably be a hostile witness... Wouldn't be the first time I was listed that way... But the butt turd suing is a redneck, claiming to be Hispanic and claiming we discriminated against him... He's more Anglo than I am...

But anyway, my supervisor and I will figure out the separation from Diamond and I'm off to bigger and better things... Or at least different... No more back of the bus flights, some schedule flexibility... Etc...and a very lucrative offer indeed...
