Yeah, I mainly did the top only cause it was easier. And I was thinking to myself "You know I have to finish this turbo ****, put the motor back in, get it going, and get the bugs worked out so I can drive that thing to school in a week. Maybe I shouldn't be porting my intake manifold.."

Cool deal then Pat.

I'm doing your mod until a rad one is for sale.

Low end and mid is more important to me anyway..

I'm just going to get it cleaned up on the inside and run with it for now. Maybe an upgrade to one of the aftermarket ones will come down the road after they've been released/tested. I just don't have the time to wait for one to come out now. Was hoping to do it all at once.
