Very nice install!

Would you mind me asking how much your total cost was on this setup?

Thanks. I didn't really count up while I was building but I'll guestimate around 1800 for just the necessary parts to get it turbo'd (injectors, ecu, turbo, manifold, dp, oil feed/drain, intercooler, piping, couplers.).

It's actually much more if you consider the supporting misc. parts (radiator, fan, clutch, injector cleaning, gauges, insulation, other cooling mods, etc.) and tools. Also, I had a couple freebies from stuff lying around in the garage from previous turbo projects so that made things a little cheaper than they would've been.

Thanks. I ended up cutting the condenser fan wire at the harness just before the ecu and spliced it into the cooling fan wire. Each fan has its own relay but both are triggered by the cooling fan's ground wire that's controlled by the ecu.
