Sorry about the Delay guys i had a competition last night!..

The 5Speed I used is a Borg Warner T-45 found in 90's Mustangs I used it because I saw people trash them all day and they seemed to hold up, and they are abundant around here, but if I had the oportunity I would have gone with a T-56 its the 6Speed found in early 2000 Camaros and Vipers I read they are known to handle well over 700hp stock internals.. and the T70 I used was an eBay Turbo (on a budget) They seemed to hold up well on my dads diesel trucks so I went with it, Compressor reads .73 the Turbine side is a T3 housing .48, Im reaching full boost at around 3k

Well i recently installed a Megan Racing Supra TT 3 Row radiator and modded the stock hydraulic fan to fit the new radiator, and I had to drill and tap a location for the coolant temp sensor, but other than that it was a drop in upgrade.. Im still facing Over heating issues so i guess the boost might have lifted the heads.. i might be getting a set of Cometic MLS HG and ARP studs which should solve the problem for good!! .. i wish i had the money for cams and porting cause now would be a great opportunity for it.. Im day dreaming about 20psi
