While there’s nothing “major” left to fabricate, of course there’s still lots of brackets and such. Made good progress though, modifying the throttlebody, swapping in a smaller throttle cable bracket so there’s lots of clearance now. Made the new turbo support, which is about 10 times cleaner than the first one.

The coolant header tank is now mounted; the radiator cap just sticks out the top of the engine cover, making sure it’s the highest point in the cooling system to not feed bubbles to the engine. Once the overflow tank is mounted (sitting loose at lower right in the last photo) the coolant lines have to be extended from above the fuel tank to the engine. Once that’s done, the entire system can be pressure tested.
