Whats up with this? The whole build initially failed and had to be redone?

Nice build and car!
Fire? Talk about adding insult to injury. :-)

I learned some valuable lessons on this build:
1. There's no such thing as a "small" turbo upgrade
2. Going fast with reliability costs large dollars
3. If you buy a short block off CL, take someone along who's an expert. Not just saw it on youtube. I thought it was a screaming deal, and I did every time something else went wrong. I could have had top-notch new block for what I spent buying & fixing this block. I dont quite have a hand-grenade now, but I did come down in parts quality compared to what I wanted.
