Default Slowest MSM build thread evar! Both MSM's finally home, now to make one!

I won a storage unit auction about a year an a half ago with an 2004 MSM (Titanium)in it. It was in rough shape, all taken apart and missing some parts like the MOTOR! So after fighting with the DMV for a year I finally got a title. Was going to build a standard rod/piston 1.8 turbo and slap it in there. Than a local guy totaled his 2004 Red MSM. I bought it. After stripping all the parts I don't need off it and selling them off at a friends shop the car is finally home.

Part II

Now time to pull this MSM motor and sell off turbo kit clean it up add some rods/pistons. Then buy a real turbo, leaning EFR, MS, FM II clutch, and supporting hardware and shoot for 300 whp, while keeping AC and PS and all the comforts of life.

Go...

Anyone want a MSM turbo setup?

There are quite a few build threads here with people who have gone the same route you are planning on going. Everyone adds their own little twist though, I'm interested to see how yours will turn out.
