In the last three years I've owned 12 different vehicles, never having more than 3 at one time, including two different street bikes and not including my trials bike. It's a little ridiculous.

And it will probably continue, because I can, and because for some reason I enjoy it. Or something.

Just admit it, you're an indecisive gay and we're glad you're apart of this community.

I myself am very indecisive. I loved my black turbo car but I hated it. I'm jealous of the white stallions but hopefully my plans for this car satisfies my needs. It makes me giggle just thinking about it

You're not going to tell us what you paid, are you?

As far as you doing an even trade between your old '93 and this new 2000SE, I expect some consideration for having encouraged you to part out.

A couple of thoughts:

1. Easy to do OTR on NB's.
2. Much better access from the side on NB's due to the fixed headlights.

Sounds like I need to come over this weekend and help you brainstorm. Dying to see this thing.

Too lazy lol. Its in my intercooler thread. Basically MSM routing with 2.5" piping. It works great cause all NB's have the hole behind drivers headlight like the MSM. You just enlarge it a wee bit

FWIW: I hated the OTR setup on my 1st turbo setup. Will not do it again.

I'll track down how Vlad has done it. I'd like otr but I hear mixed emotions, and I think my intercooler and cold side will work out I just need a hotside.

Behind the headlight is clean. There is an existing hole there on NB's. Edit: I used FM's intercooler<->TB hose.

Original post is here.

Mobius's 3rd picture. You may have to remove the inner fender liner to see it.

I was hoping he had a parts list that he used, now he is making things difficult for me!

That sounds dirty.

My big surprise should be shipped out friday, I can't wait! What is it you ask? I will never tell

And I will be shipping my ECU to Dimitris tomorrow for a MS3 upgrade and having the harness switched over for a 2000. I will be non-turbo for a month or so while I get everything together, so this build won't be rushed (which is a good thing)

Not to revive an old thread, but what the hell, I can't hold it any longer

"Reviving an old thread" is what happens when you respond to one that's been dormant a year, not a month. And when it's your own thread, even that doesn't matter.

Shiny! Very nice. Is that a crate motor? Or a built motor? Do tell!

If your reference above to needing a parts list was in regards to my intercooler setup, I have a complete parts list in my track prep thread. If the reference wasn't towards me, then disregard.

Built motor! Notice the supertech pistons I forgot my gaps, but 84mm pistons with 8.6:1 compression. Polished crank, balanced internals, I get my paperwork tomorrow on all the specs so I can update later.

I'll look into your build, I'm considering over the radiator because I love the look, im indecisive right now.
