Got it started. Huge thanks to everyone here and the TB discord group. Need to track down a timing light to get moving on stabilizing idle and whatnot.

Open DP for now. Had some help this weekend to try it get the JT tuning 3" turbo back (EDIT...may not be actual JT see my comment two posts below) mounted but the portion over the axle seems all wrong. Need to get it to an exhaust shop to modify and fit it once I get this car roadworthy. Some updated pics in my album:

FWIW my JT Tuning exhaust fit just fine. They need a bunch of adjustment, plus, the rear section is kind of confusing to arrange, and putting things of backwards may make it seem like it almost fits.

It seems this may not be a JT exhaust after all. I had reached out to them about some fit concerns and they advised if I bought via KL-Racing then it wasn't theirs...KL sells copies of their exhaust.

We tried the backwards approach as well. Could either get it to route from the muffler and around the tank or get it over the axle to that one piece with the hangers, but not both.

Well I have hot idle stable but still a little rich so need to work on that. If I get some time tomorrow I might finish dialing that in and get it on the road for the first time since I started the kjet exorcism.

Still have the harness temporarily in place. Once I get more time with it and am confident no wiring issues I'll loom/tape it up and call it a day on the hardware portion of upgrade. HUGE thanks again to all you guys. Wouldn't have pulled this off without you.

If you have the paid version of TunerStudio MS, the 'VE Analyze Live - Auto Tune' feature is very useful for getting your VE table in sync with your AFR Table. It is not that great at getting the idle down though. Make sure your engine is at operating temp before you start tuning.

Went with paid just to have that feature for my VE table. After getting my hot idle dialed in yesterday I went for a bit of a drive to get more gas. Gentle stuff under 3k and it ran surprisingly well...well enough to get it to an exhaust shop to fit this exhaust. Holding off on the meat of the tuning until I am no longer running an open DP.

Well I guess I can call this Kjet to MicroSquirt project done. Had the exhaust installed today and continued some on road tuning with it after. Sounds good, runs great, and pulls strong (still being conservative with it though).

Next step is to finally wash it, borrow a buffer to polish out the massive swirl marks prior to my ownership, and get this thing looking as good as I can while I still fine tune.

Again...HUGE thanks to everyone here and in the TB Discord for answering all my questions along the way.
