    Ahhh such a nice specimen. I'm happy that somebody keeps the turboed fun alive.

    there simply are no words for here to put say me... (my mind just melted attempting to unravel the possibilities here!)
    Yes, that is, in fact, a Squirrel driving a Ferrari...

    Is that pyrometer just above A/F sensor?

    I'd suggest to keep OE size pulleys. W/P will have difficulty circulating coolant for efficient cooling. Believe me, ask Adr as well, it gets rather warm inside the cab. All that added heat removed from t/c gets trapped inside heater core.

    Cheers...

    Yes it is a pyrometer or exhaust gas temp (EGT) sensor.

    That may be in the best interest for maximum cooling efficiency. I haven't noticed any heat inside the cab associated with the t/c. This something that will be monitored now that you brought this up. I appreciate the advice.

    Thanks. Since this item is discontinued and there is a possibility to use it I want to hold on to it. I tend to hoard parts, especially the rare ones.
