Default Pics of my GT2871R install

So this weekend the weather was awesome.. so I decided to pull my old t25 and slap on the new GT2871. Pics:

GT2871 vs SR20 T25:


Clocking the 2871, thats a big wheel:



Turbo sitting on the car. The engine bay is still dusty from the paint shop. As you can see I'm missing one 90 degree pipe that I just got from Scott:


The car with my new white hardtop (yes the hood is popped). The hardtop is OEM white and the car is Toyota White Pearl:

I can't wait for the next dyno day either (assuming it's after march-ish and there is no salt on the roads). If I don't get to at least 280rwhp I'm ditching the new TT's and going with the 2871 too. What exhaust A/R are you running?

I like the Type 1 nose and the K1's of course!

I wish.. I'm not digging the 949 offsets so I am going to save myself about 500 bucks and end up with 15x8 Sportmax 501's. I wish I could have run a 15x8 / 15x9 staggered setup

Turbo is a .64 AR I scored off ebay. Previous owner decided to blow up his CRX motor within a few thousand miles. The housing wasn't even rusting it was so new. Must have been too much VTEK p0wa!!
