Ahh so your going to be working with Tim and the EOS Crew. Congrats! You might bump into my Dad he lives over in boulder. He drives a White 88 9000 Turbo. He brings it over from time to time.

I'll let you know about the parts list.

well that is unfortunate to hear that Tim is leaving. He helped my dad out a few times with the 9000 and some odd ball problems that he was having. He has also dealt with me from time to time on somethings that I have been looking for on my 900.

Do you know what the name of Tim's new shop is going to be?

Anyway Good Luck!

Whats getting cryogen treated? The engine, trans, both?!

It may not be worth spending the $$ on forged pistons. From what I have heard the B234 ones are pretty strong.

yea enge and tranny rods and crank. the bigest reason im going withthe forged pistons is weight, im having the entire rotating asembaly balanced and blueprinted and im going to need as many rpms as i can squeez out of it to spin the holset that is going on im looking for 7k to 7500 rpm cause the holset should start spooling right around 3400 if i left my it the way it is now i would run out of rpms before the turbo was spooled.

it looks like it will fit inbetween the head and the radiator if i reclock it, i might have to loose one of the fans but i can eather wire the other one to work for both of them or i have a fan at the house that might be skinnyer that i can use i just have to measure it. where it sits now the outlet for the tubo is right next to the coolant lines going into the head reclocking the intake housing sould fix this problem. i measured on a car that is all togeather the space inbetween the head and the fan is about 10" witch is plenty, the turbo only sticks out about 7 inches from the head
