Thumbs up The mutt 95 Hardbody with 5.3 twin turbo

I've always wanted to build a Hardbody with a v8 in it my first attempt was a 5.0 in my 88 it didn't work out so well,so I put another Z24 in it and keep rollin until I sold it for a zero turn mower,still got the mower by the way,fast forward many years and several trucks/projects later I picked up this 95 hardbody off Craigslist after the po posted it then changed his mine removed it then a few months later posted it again,so I jumped on it the 2nd time it showed up I bought it with the LS and trans sitting in it,already had the dana 44 bolted under it and the rack and pinion was there as well nothing completed or hooked up.I got it home and was gonna get it running without turbos but I figured what the heck its gonna be a project anyway why not make it more challenging.Then i got to looking at the factory LS wiring harness and the cost of pcm flashed, tuning it once everything was up and going so I got to looking in to the FITech system it seems a lot of money but for what all your getting its worth it in my option may have to up grade the injectors later but will see if and when I get this thing going.then I was checking in to turbo set ups ran across CSRacing I pretty much picked this kit out from pics the placement seemed close to what I was looking for and they had a sell going on saved a few bucks so I ordered it its supposed to be for a toyota supra late 80's with a LS swap fits pretty good so far.Griffin dirt track radiator non intercooler may have to do methanol inject to help keep it cool will see, great something else to think about it never ends theres more to come

Some of that parts list I didn't use.It's from the po of the truck still got to figure out exhaust,fuel lines and turbo coolant lines then tear everything back down for gaskets and wiring maybe one day it will be rolling. btw I suck at welding so that's a set back when I need some done nice that is
