Default Pictures of mounts

Hey mike I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering if you still have photos available. I can't seem to open them on the thread. I'm a noob here so if I sound incompetent, I probably am. I will be undertaking an SR20DET swap in the near future. The pictures would help a lot.

Thanks!

Mike swears up and down that he wished he would have just stayed with the BP.

Take it from him and everyone here, do not waste your time/money on swapping anything other than a v8.

Hmmm.. Well damn. I am on a budget and I only have until spring when drift season starts. I bought my 1990 with a 1.6 that has low compression on the fourth cylinder. I am going to swap either way. The 1.8 is about $1k, but I'd want to turbo that. It's tough considering the hydra II turbo set up is about that $5500 range. I don't know anymore haha. Oh well.

Thanks!

Find a nice junkyard 1.8 swap and turbo that. Go with a MSPNP or something on the forum which can be found for $400 used. Find a log manifold for $200, a downpipe for $150, and a sr20 turbo for $200.

It can be done on a budget. Keep reading and looking around, you are at the right site, but not looking in the right places.

Yep, definately do a budget turbo setup. You can find good (used) parts here and if your good all over the internet.

Keep on trying, you dont need the most baller parts that we all gawk over to get the goals you want.
