Default It's time...going turbo.

Well as I made my obligatory intro post almost 4 years ago and then another one about a year and a half ago, it's now time to post the "next step"...car's a 1990 with 101k on it.

I started gathering parts a few months ago and I am getting to the point of having everything together, so I figured let's post up.

You guys were a lot of motivation, learned a lot from Sticky posts, even got some deals in the FS sections...anyways, here we go:

Parts I have:

-AVO manifold
-Garrett GT2560r
-AVO DP elbow
-Begi old style dp (gonna use this, some 2.5" piping and the AVO elbow to fab my dp)
-460cc injectors
-Egay FMIC
-Egay Piping (with the nicer quality couplers)
-TurboXS rfl bov
-DIYMS 3.0 (still working on my pnp harness) (with ait)
-Innovate LC1
-ACT heavy duty clutch
-all necessary oil/water lines and fittings
-1.8 rear end (diff,driveshaft,axles) from a 97.

I am still needing a few things here and there, but this is about it...

I will post pics of the engine bay once the work actually starts happening.

If I'm missing anything, please ask or recommend away

Sounds like a good setup. There aren't any parts there I would not have recommended. In for pictures!

I have decided to be smart/logical and wait with this till I get through my next few months...I'm leaving to basic with the USAF in Sept...and the lady is going back to college in Pitt...(I live in VA, like 20 min from DC)

So I'm going to attempt to drive to PA like 4 times between aug and sept (which I don't wanna do with my "project build" so I'll keep it n/a for it) and once I'm done with basic and tech school, then I'll finish this damn car

Pics in january
