Default Mk2.5 London Turbo Build (PIC HEAVY)

Hi all,

Been browsing for a while getting tips on Fi so I thought why not join up and show off some shitty pics

Had a 10AE mk2 before that developed a knocking bottom end,

After a mint 2001 Impreza WRX STI import that blew up on me after 18 hours of owning it (majorly pissed, definitely getting one of these again in the future),

I decided to get a Fiesta ST (do these actually exist in the states?)

It was...pretty ****. RWD ftw. Then decided to pick up this, 04 plate S-VT sport with 50k miles

Didn't take long to start doing stuff to it, first was the K&N and Rota's off the old mk2

Then a 300mm OMP wheel, feels a lot nicer with this

Then I was contemplating a bucket seat, coilovers, harnesses, all sortsa stuff and then decided to stop messing around and just do what i've wanted to do for the past 2 years and turbo an mx. First purchase, a MS2 Rev Enhanced

Then came a few more bits. An over the top intercooler from Mx5Dan over on the Nutz forums.

Didn't want to risk the clutch slipping so went for this beauty

Booking this in with Garage D in the next few days. I live literally 2 minutes away from them so might be asking them to do some work.

Boost gauge as per...

And an AEM Wideband

After some messing around trying to remove the stock o2 sensor, I finally fitted the MS2 and AEM Wideband. Up in the air next to my cousins SR20 powered P10 Primera

After a bit of messing around

It finally worked

Genuine HKS SSQV Bov delivered today

and that's where she stands at the minute!

I have 550cc RX7 injectors on the way, a GM IAT and am ordering a td04l mani and dp bundle which comes with oil/water line, brackets and everything else needed from a chap in Greece asap. If i'm right, once the exhaust bits are ordered, all I need to get is a turbo and that should be that.

I like keeping track of what's going on with pictures so I'll update this as I go and try make it a bit more interesting

Toodles for now
