    I've had my car almost a year now, it being a busted *** 4 banger when I got it.

    The big goal I had in mind ever since buying it was to go turbo. Finally it's time to meet that goal. :D

    Yesterday I got my first box of parts in the mail. Actual turbo setup should be here mid next week or so. It shipped today.

    Summit ignition box, boost gauge, gauge pillar, and exhaust wrap.

    Got the car in the shop last night and work on it for an hour or so.

    Pile 'o parts.

    Thanks, I went with the On3 kit. I used to dislike them back when the hotside was stainless, but it appears they are holding up now that Chad is using mild steel headers and cross-over.

    Yeah! Another turbo coupe. What size turbo? I have a Quicktime turbo system with the upgraded 67mm Precision turbo. Installing the FAST XFI system in a couple weeks. Then I will have numbers. Do you have a stock block? How are you going to tune it? Manual boost or electronic? Keep us posted!

    My buddy just bought a 76mm turbo kit from them for his 351w. He is installing it right now. Seems everyone is going turbo. They still make nitrous? :)

    You've done more with that car in less than a year than I've done to mine in 8 years, haha.

    What are your power goals? Does the car still have stock heads?

    I'm just going to run a Master Power T70, with the .68 exhaust housing.

    Yeah, stock block, and I'm going to see if I can get the boost I want just off the wastegate spring, if not. I'll look into a hallman (not sure how it's spelled) manual controller.

    I'm still not sure about tuning, it would be easiest to take it to john and have an sct chip burned. But I'd like to get into tuning myself. If I went that route, I'd buy the moates quarterhorse setup.

    And seeing the other John's (haha) build pop up is what made me finally just order my kit.

    Haha, I get bored easy. So I constantly tinker on the thing the keep interest in it.

    Right now, I just want to make 400rwhp on the stock long-block.

    Thanks, it's far from perfect. But I try to keep it clean. :nice:

    I wasn't feeling very ambitious after work today, so all I got done was putting the car on jackstands and pulling this mess off.

    Hey man, I got the car when I was 17, haha. So, for the first year I owned it I was a broke high school kid and for 5 years after that, I was a broke-ass college kid.

    That leaves me with the last two years in which I got married and bought a house.

    ****... I'm never going to get anything done on that car, am I?

    Got my pump in the mail yesterday, and picked up a new fuel filter.

    [​IMG]

    So last night I dropped the tank and got the walbro in.

    [​IMG]

    Of course, when I try to test it before putting the tank back it wont work.
    Turned out after an hour of cussing, one of the leads on the cheapo but-connector pulled out when I dropped the cage in.

    Yeah, I am hoping it lasts a little while. I'm not much of a power shifter, and the clutch is about the equivalent of a King Cobra. So maybe it'll slip before something breaks? :shrug: One can only hope. Haha.

    I wondered about that too, but I also don't know how the electrical setup works, after all, it's just bare connections in the tank.
