Holy crap! I haven't seen that cartoon character since I was a child. Maybe he can pull out some tools from his pocket and help with the install. LOL

Great job Jeff.. Not sure if you have a turbo blanket already, but that is a must in TX heat.

Sorry guys no update for today. My friend and I spent 5 freaking hours installing that damn oil return flange. I drilled the wrong size hole! So I had to go back and repair my mistake. Way too tired to post up pix. I'll do that tomorrow.
