Turbo placement

Before I can get much of the exhaust fabrication done the turbo location has to be determined.
Moving the radiator down and forward left just enough space for the turbo to sit right in front of the motor.

It's a pretty tight squeeze with only about 3/4" clearance from the power steering pump, upper control arm and top of radiator but it will be fine. This is not the crappy original GM-1 turbo. After many hours of research I settled on a Holset WH1C. This turbo was used on early Dodge Cummins pickups.

It's supported with a bracket attached to the front crossmember.
