Most of the time when asking for help with something, you should post it in the virtual mechanic section

Got a little more accomplished. Started disconnecting the plumbing and removed the intercooler.

Turbo looks like it's in decent condition, no visible leaks.

A little gin and tonic to keep me motivated.

Started the body work with the driver fender.

That's pretty much all I had time for after work tonight.

Here's a quick video of start up/ walk around and my HVAC unit working.

In need of some turbo oil feed/return lines and coolant lines. Preferably braided hoses. Let me know if you have any you are willing to part with.

Also another quick update. I fixed the whining noise from my steering gear box. Bled out the air with a mitvac pump and put in some Bar's power steering additive. Noise is completely gone. Saved me about $200 for a reman gearbox and/or hours of my time.

You mean Bar's auto tranny additive right.  These cars use ATF in the power steering.

Did you see the FAQ on the vac delete? See page 3 at the end.
Use ZIP ties if vac lines are not tight. Stock vac line ID is 3.2 mm

Got some good work done today. ABS delete, Started EGR delete, Installed braided coolant hose, removed exhaust system. I'm gonna have a shop in town build me a new exhaust system. Was thinking either 2.5" or 3", what do you guys think? Also found cracks in exhaust manifold (shocker). Removed turbo, removed exhaust manifold. Gonna weld the cracks. Is there a good way to stress relieve the manifolds? Also some idiot put silicone on the manifold, and most of the buts/bolts I've removed were only finger tight.....
