I've held off on posting til I was closer to reassembly. I am mid teardown currently and just received my T-56. I will be using Bill bellhousing. I will be using Gato performance's MPI manifold, JDL design T4 divided top mount manifold, BW EFR 7670 turbo, 1K CC injectors. I will update this thread with pictures once I get home. Consider this a placeholder for things to come.

I aim to give a good detail of the tunnel modifications required for the G54B with a T-56 Magnum. I will include as much detail as possible to help future mods out. I will be using the fidanza flywheel for use with GM 10-10.4" clutches. I will give a detailed account of the measurements for those and correct hydraulic release bearing.

I expect to have a running car before the middle of next month.

Pictures will be added here:

If you use a 3' socket extension to reach the top transmition to bell housing bolts, you only need to massage the passenger side of the tunnel over about 1/2 "

You have to loosen the motor mounts and tip the engine with a jack on the front pulley to stab the inputs haft into the clutch, but the pass side is the only place it hits the tunnel.  There are a few casting stubs to cutoff, and a sensor for the class or whatever it's called.

I have a nice Conquest Shell I'll trade you with the tunnel cut, and professionally welded for a T56 :D Stock interior fits well even.

Sorry about that, YES! I am waiting on bills bell housing and motor mounts.  Last weekend I got the front suspension rebuilt and new bearings installed. I have a few things coming in. Its spring break so I am unable to do more work on it until next weekend.

1. AiM MXS Strada. I will be using this old cluster housing and some 1/4 in. Plexiglas to get it mounted. It will fit perfectly inside the cluster hood and should look like it is supposed to be there.

2. Fuel Pump and fuel pump accessories (going to use an AEM fuel pump)


3. Bills bellhousing and motor mounts. He should be finished shortly. (I have already received the clutch I will be using)

4. The new turbo manifold.

You using an internally gated turbo on that?  If so,why get the divided model?  Is it stainless? the color in the collector doesn't look right for stainless, which has a slight yellow hue.  A magnet check will tell.  Magnets won't stick to 3xx series stainless.  It looks nice.

Chad the integrated WG on the EFR B frame series is 42 or 44mm. It is way more than the engine needs to regulate boost pressure. Plus the non-internal WG version has a larger A/R. I wanted to make sure I get a quick spool still.

The manifold is from JDL. He posted here what he uses. Which according to the site is schedule 40 stainless.

I knew they made them, but I've never seen a divided internal T4.  I think it was for a diesel application and the WG was a proppet type with a v-band connection on the side of the turbine.  42-44 mm should be plenty.  

Yah, you can see the difference in color, the lower port on the left side, it's just a silver color on the steel flange, and the runner on the left side of the collector wall is a little yellow.

It has a 5 inch screen.

The larger 7 inch model would not have worked with my plans. Not to mention since it is a full data logger also they cost about 1300 dollars more....
