Go back to your write up request thread and look at the pictures !!!Paintrain!!! posted and you will see what I mean.
I would go with this - I was speaking from a picture of the pedestal i'd seen, not personal experience, all i knew for sure was that it was different.
bet it's a lot eaasier to get the turbo in there with the later pedestal...
