I couldn't fit the Mishi fans/shroud with my mishi rad and stock T25 but my piping runs closer to the rad not back towards the turbo.

In other news, after getting the transaxle opened, I believe I found my issue: Looks like the locking nuts came loose...... One of the nuts spinning almost cut through the black end cap!

Wow that's crazy! Did you use new nuts last time? I could have clocked my turbo but the wastegate only has holes for the stock location so I would have had to drill and tap new holes and didn't feel like going through the trouble. Just wanted to have the car back together.

I don't remember if "deez nuts" were the ones used last time, or if they were new. This was over a year ago. Let me check the pictures.

EDIT: It looks like sadly, I reused the old ones. :(

Damn, those gears look sick! Good thing you got the trans apart before something catastrophic happened.

A couple of things:

1. All my pictures are gone! Thanks photobucket....

2. I still have my MP3.

3. I need to get off my ass and put that build transaxle back in the car that has been sitting for over 2 years!

Haha! Super resurrection bump!! Sorry about the pics. Flickr hasn't done it to me..... yet...

I'm in the same boat, except I broke my trans last spring and it's been sitting since. Good on ya for getting her back on the road.

Photobucket gave plenty of warning they were going to be doing what they did, going to a paid service.

Still in the garage. I have a 2020 3.5L Acura TLX A-Spec for my daily driver, so I haven't been in much of a rush to put it back together. I've contemplated selling the MP3.
