Chris just posted pictures on the Corvette Forum of his engine with the oil pan taken off. Thought that he might have posted something here. Maybe he still will.

Have enjoyed his videos. The one on starter removal explained why I wasn’t able to get the starter off 88-048. Wouldn’t have guessed you’d need to drop the pan a little.

I was just under my 88 Vert and it looks like there’s a bolt that’s going back thru the Callaway relo piece into the starter. I’m currently trying to replace my turbo water lines. Kevin

I am very excited to see Rotomaster back to supporting these turbos!! That’s two owners this year that had rebuilds done.

When I did my Rotomaster rebuild I was in the assumption Rotomaster was out of business and I brought mine to a local Rallye car mechanic.
Mine is rebuild with Garrett parts.
