I hope the turbo isn't staying there! haha

How much did you pay for your stainless braided fuel line? I might need to get me some for an upcoming project and I'd like to know about how bad it's gonna hurt.

Yip its gonna stay right there. The braided lines are pricey, but worth it.

Oh I didn't realize it was mounted to anything. Looked like it was just sitting up on top of the block!

Cut a hole in the hood so instead of having a blower stick out of the hood you will have a turbo sticking out of the hood.

Thats the plan for now.

Wanted to say thanks to the folks at Royal Purple for supplying all the fluids for The Comp D drag truck. Starting the motor out on Premium blue, but after the break in the motor gets RP from then on. The tranny and diff all have RP going in. Thanks to those guys for offering to help out.

I am sure there will be serious repercussions. Today while working on the Ranger, I had something work, without needing to be modified or custom fabbed. I can assure you that I will track down the culprit and there will most likely be serious ramifications for this oversight from the custom fabrication gods.

The power steering line that goes from the superduty power steering pump has the same fitting as the one that is on the Ranger power steering rack. There is a good chance that I am dreaming all of this, and will wake up tomorrow to find out that they are two completely separate pieces, and there was never a chance that it will fit. That is not all, all 3 hoses fit the reservoir that I have chosen and mounted. Be on the lookout for the 4 horseman of the apocalypse, and beware, lightning could strike at any time.
