so found another guy in oregon that is willing ( so far) to make a ss turbo header for my app. i sent him a lot of pic and measurements last night and he said ya no problem. he does't understand why randy changed his design on me then refused to fix it or make it right but none the less we'll see. he said couple weeks and it should ship. now i know a log header isn't preferable but i have decided to go this route for now. just with a diff twist.......not a standard style log header and they will be stronger and less prone to crack than the others which is what i want. plenty of documented builds making 500 hp with a stock iron manifold.

lol and thanks. not sure it will take 50 psi but boy would that be fun!  just need everything to fit where i want it as this powerplant may find a new home in a diff frame at some point maybe  ;) ;)  i liked the other header however stronger is always better so you answered my next two questions lol. i am going to buy a tig later this summer so i can build things like this myself cause no matter what ......and we all know this.....we just have to build ourselves! i was just trying to get a break on time.

Get with Jerry (SandSaviour) He just bought a very nice tig that here carries in the trailer.  We used it several time's in Yuma last winter and it worked great. He welded a half inch piece of steel with ease, and lot's of aluminum wheels. And the best part it was not that expensive.

well found a guy that builds headers for the 2.3. he's in oregon and said he will build that log style header properly, $425 shipped. says he hopes to have it shipped in 2 weeks. i need the time saver for this project but still plan on buying a tig, i know i can borrow enemies again but i should have one. fast....i did contact jerry and he said he would look to see make and model on his.

so just some pics. i am using the microsquirt pnp ecu from stinger performance. they chose to use a db expansion port inside and most appear to use a plug that requires soldering he wires to tiny leads then the wires just hang out the hole in the back. i was searching for something i could easily disconnect to get the ecu out if needed. so i found this little black box that  enclosed, uses screws to secure the wires and is easily removed from the ecu. opening the casing just a tiny bit more was the only mod and it is a 26 pin connector were the db25 is on ly 25. the 26th pin on this connector is a ground so since the casing isn't grounded anymore thr0ugh the body i used that pin to ground it. it is held in by velcro , very strong velcro.

What amazes me is how many still use antiquated connectors.
