No rush at all, and certainly not to look cool for you. Arguing with you online, is a waste of my time and everyone elses. So, you can offer some good tips, STFU,or continue to argue. I wont be responding if its either of the second two.
Dude, he's helping you. So quit being a bitch about it. If anything, be thankful he's taking his time to help you. And so are others.

Quoted for contradiction.

I'll give the benefit of the doubt and leave out the $750 I dropped on a 6-speed, or the $500 I've dumped into an Rx7 LSD (since I broke the 5-speed and the Torsen my car came with). I like a car I can abuse and beat on as hard as I want and it will never skip a beat. I flatshift my car pretty much every time I drive it, and it'll be doing it's 16th track day (10th track day turboed) on Saturday. You find me someone with $3k in their turbo setup who tracks it more than 4 times a year. Street reliability and track reliability are very, very different.

BEGI manifold/DP: $850
Garrett GT2554R, used: $300
Oil and water lines (stainless feed, silicone return): $150
Intercooler, BOV, piping, $325
MSPNP, GM IAT, Knocksense, Wideband, Injectors: $1100
3" stainless exhaust with metal core cat: $600
Boost, oil temp, 3-gauge a-pillar pod mount: $275
Oil cooler, radiator: $550
Clutch: $375

$4525

Not done yet, either. I need a reroute and a vented hood to eliminate all traces of overheating.
