I've decided to sell a few things , to in a way start over, I've asked alot of stupid questions and said alot of stupid ****, Im starting over with my set-up going with a t3 set-up instead of the t25 route, I mailed off the t25 manifold to Mr.bell for a t3 manifold , And Im sourcing a t3 turbo. I found a few and am in process of buying. Things will be a lil longer with shipping times and such But I plan to have things done asap, I've been putting it off for too long. A week of vacation from work has helped me in my choice, I've done alot of reading Of everyones set-ups on here,So I chose to switch up.

New set-up as followed:
1-t3 manifold
2-saab t3 turbo
3-vortech 8:1 fmu
4-12X9X2.5 Intercooler
5-greddy e-manage
6-305cc injecters
7-ss oil lines
8-aem wideband
9-custom 2.5 down into 2.5 exhaust piping
10-evo By-pass valve
11-devils own wi
12-190lph walboro
13-perrin manual boost controller
14-custom 2.5 intercooler piping
15-act clutch

That in my oppinion Is a better plan, only thing now is time and money and the rest will take place. so how does this sound.

Looks good. My initial set up is very similar.

Now it's

1-T2 Manifold
2-T25 (SR20? R32?)
3-Vortech FMU
4-16x10x3 IC
5-Sebring MSD w/ Bipes mod
6-Stock injectors (for now)
7-SS oil lines
8-Narrowband A/F (for now)
9-DSM BOV
10-MR2 Manual Boost controller
11-AVO 2'' to IC and 2.5'' to TB

Very similar set ups, your's seems to be ideal for pushing a bit more HP than I invision but should I have more money later I intend to move to a 5th injector set up for more HP. (exhaust work would be good too)

I'm still going on a year. Switched turbo's once I found a killer deal and still need to get some stuff, mostly just the new turbo and an Intercooler at this point. I'll be sure to make a thread for the install...and inevitable "OMG Help!" thread.

I've only been collecting parts for like 9 months now, lil here and there, I would've had things done if it were'nt for me getting into trouble with the law(over 800) in tickets, In seminole they nail you easy at all the wrong times, Most of it, carless speeding over 8mph while it seems everyone else around me is flying, oh and they try to pin me with drag racing by-myself....bullshit man. good thing for hell-bound layers

I first picked up a partial greddy kit, then sold that and picked up a wrecked turbo miata, stripped it, sold the chassis, decided I didnt like the way he had done it, redid it on paper, then redid that in the car. its at the 95% completed point now, only about 8 months from there to now. and I would say another 2-3 till im happy
