Here is a pic of the turbo complete with the new neck welded on. The list is getting smaller and soon it will run. Here is the link.

Wrong, it cuts the bugs up into bite size pieces for the turbo.

Pretty much keeps anything the size of a small bird out. Its a china charger and we have a life expectancy of about 6 months for it so the screen will do its job well for that time and maybe longer if the turbo holds up. Only time will tell.

here's a vote to feed the turbo a bird, or small feeder mouse, and see what happens.

Ok so I have been slacking off a little bit but we were in the garage and I though I wonder what my buddies mustang 4 inch cowl hood would look like. I think this looks tough and functions well. I wanted to get some input on what it looks like to you guys. This is most likely the path I will take with my hood. I am going to keep an eye out for a used mustang hood because not only is it the correct length it has the perfect with as well and follows the cure of the hood pretty good. So with a little ingenuity and alot of time I think it would look really good. Tell me what you guys think. The pictures don't really do it justice it looks alot better in real person. You can get a much better feel for it when you can walk around and look at the whole thing.

I also plan on making my own non flip up headlights so I hope to extend teh factory hood over the headlight buckets about 4 inches so the it will give the whole front end a lower look.

I think it's decent except you totally lose the sleeper feature. People will be significantly less surprised when they learn you have a jz. They might expect you have a 5.0 actually :(

Not a big deal I am hoping for more of the look at this dumb ricer look but at least it will all be under the hood and the overall lines of the car will look good.

Hahaha lol. Can you find an ugly *** wing then please? That really would be pretty cool. Can't be a better sleeper than disguising yourself as a ricer

Not sure about others, but I can usually spot the ricers from "ricer" cars that mean business.....you just kinda know. I remember the other day I was with my buddy in his MS3 on the highway. We came up on this old "pos" civic hatch that was tryin to race us. As I got a closer look I could just tell this car was serious, and it was.
