    Finally pulled the car out of the garage last weekend after i finished all the repairs/mods i've done this winter. Here's what i did:

    New Bambev turbo cartridge
    Ported my E6
    added a Forge BOV
    4 New Khumo 711 235/45/17 on new 00 GT 5 spoke wheels
    Took the interior apart and steam cleaned everything
    Meguiars 3 step detailing, only i used the new Meguiars NXT wax instead of the 3rd step wax.

    [​IMG]
    The sticker is a turboford.org sticker, and i haven't found locking lug nuts that fit inside of the wheel center caps yet.

    This picture sucks

    so does this one

    Wheelgap :( at least the tires don't rub

    [​IMG]
    And the interior

    The car is a lot more fun to drive now, and getting to be pretty fast. The Khumo's also grip very well.

    Any questions/comments?

    It's not original. It's called a Ford Dark Tourmaline.

    you didnt happen to break any bolts dis-assembling your turbo did you? And if you did.. where did you get new ones? I have about 4 broken housing bolts and i want to get a bamabeve cartridge but dont know where to get some new freakin bolts! Any ideas? Also how hard was putting that together?

    Just go to lowe's or some other hardware store and pick up some stainless 8x1.25 bolts. The whole turbo uses that same size.
