Default Kit on ebay

Hey, just saw this on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1994-...em200169942224 didn't know if it would be useful to anyone with a 1.8L car but just in case. No affiliation, it ends today (in 9 hours I think)

I like the placement of the turbo on that manifold, makes more room for the DP.

The JGS manifold does place the turbo a little more forward so you can buid a DP more easily. I use a turbo very similar to that on my car right now and like it. That intercooler is huge, it might take a little massaging of your A/C drier or something like that to make it fit in the mouth real easily. Not sure though. You won't need that FMU so you could resell it. You also won't need the BOV, you can get something better because you won't need to recirc.

Who is going to fab your downpipe?

Chad, since you mention that the intercooler is huge I'm going to take pics (if I ever learn how to use a digital camera:gay of my parts before install because if I think the intercooler I bought is even bigger

Raf, take measurements while taking pics. As in lay your tape measure across the IC while you snap the photos. That way we can't mis communicate. Then post them up here via uploading them to tinypic.com and pasting the img tags into your post.
