You could always ask on the "wanted" section to see if anyone has turbos they aren't going to use.

So far this is where it is... Thinned our all the resin from underneath, bored out tail lights for the exhaust, cut tonneau for engine, cut down the engine to fit within the height of the truck bed..

Thank you John, working on putting the engine together today. Painted it last night and dropped it but oh well. Not gonna see much of it anyway... Have turbos on the way from Canada, thanks Rick!!! Body is at home feeling a bit gassy today, primer is a bit tacky so I left it to gas out a bit more....
