That's actually pretty cheap for that car. The 59 is pretty much the holy grail for most hearse people and the '59 Superior Crown 3 way is made of pure unobtainium. About the only hearse that ever goes for more money is a '59 M-M Eterna Combo since they are what the Ghostbusters (Ecto1) was based off of and most of those get turned into some form of terrible clone pretty quick.

Got a big enough inlet there, Butch? DANG!!!

I've never seen a turbo volute expand like that before either. Interesting design. I need to look at the flow capabilities of that unit.

Well for the same reason I was giving some shit to RichardH about that little Fisher Price sized turbo I wanted something that would bring into power linearly and have an ideal amount of backpressure. The exhaust housing has a 96x88mm wheel with a 1.32 A/R which should be perfect for one of the largest air pumps every put in a car. As inappropriate of a phrase as it is I don't think anything captures this better than 'you don't walk in a whorehouse with a limp dick'. :)

Well said; and if fortunate, not going ANYWHERE with such a malady.

What is your plan for head gaskets and fasteners?

I think I like the SCE Titan gaskets (I'm open to suggestions) and definitely the ARP stud kit.
