      I was wondering what you were up to back there. That's exactly how I plan to turbo my truck, if I decide it needs more than the engine. I'm already moving some stuff from under the hood to behind the cab, and will be using the front of a bed welded a couple of feet back from the actual front of the bed to make a box for it, and will use an aluminum tool box lid to make it look like there's just a tool box back there. The rest of the bed will be sealed and lined, covered with a hard bed cover and used as a trunk instead of a bed.

      cool idea on the tool box !
      I'm planning to build a wall between the smugglers box area and the rest of the bed. Iím also going to build a cover for the bed.

      So I went to the garage this morning to figure out the turbo flange mount and didn’t like the fact that the turbo was close to the center of the area it is occupying!
      Decided to move it closer to the wall by 2” .
      Should give me more room for cold side and exhaust.Name:  4092F9FD-120B-481A-ACC1-485A09A0E796.jpg

      Moving towards making the exhaust from the turbo. I plan on a traditional duel exhaust out the rear.
      I have some old bullets mufflers from a car that was parted out they should be perfect for the turbo

      Ah, nice... found your build thread, I was missing the updates since you left FB. You've made some good progress! Do you plan on some heat insulation between the turbo bracket and the cab?

      Keep up the good work David! :-)
