Look at my arms. I'm straining to hold the turbo up. And at this point I was thinking, "What would happen if I dropped this?"

M/T is a better tire IMO. And I'm assuming you will NOT be rolling the fenders still, right? Can't wait to see this thing finished. What size are those? 26ish x 14?

You can fit wider than that if you try.

I won't fully disclose the specs of the car, as I street race and all that jazz...BUT, I will say that the measurements of that turbo you provided there are similar to mine.

The one on the car is a GT55, and the other that is taped up is a GT47.

Yeah, it's pretty safe to say that.

I wonder what size motor I would need to spool that thing?

What's up Stan? I'm missing my car BIG TIME! I should get it back next week. I' don't think Mikes car will be ready for UFC Night but hopefully soon! We've all got to go cruising again. Much Fun!

we can all go cruising again after three things happen:

1) I get my car fixed (got backed into today and crunched up the front a bit)
2) I pay you the $25 I owe you for my last hair cut
3) I get my hair cut again.

What's up Noah? I don't know if you heard but I got hit about 3 weeks ago. $5400 worth of damage, front clip, front right fender, passenger door, spindle, steering arm and 3 wheels. She plowed into my right front wheel cracking it and the impact pushed my wheels on the driver side into the curb. I'm still waiting for the wheels. Call me for a haircut. After I get my car back a bunch of us are headed for the Drag Strip! Zoom-Zoom!
