Make sure I understand you correctly(forgive me
) The ports on the block can be updated either new or off of a wrecked truck,with new boots to connect it to the manifold. Then the intake housing on the turbo needs to be changed out as well OR the whole turbo itself because it needs the bigger inlet housing? Would this be worth my while or does this mess with my injectors etc...
One more quick question, does this mean my HPOP is a 15* not a 17* since its a early 99? Thanks again for your help!
