Default New mexicans read!

Anyone in the Santafe/Taos area with a garage i can use to install my turbo kit? Would be great to have someone with knowledge of a turbo setup to help me and my dad install this thing, plus i just moved out here and don't have a house yet, much less a garage. Figured id ask here before using a sketchy garage where stuff might get stolen. (i would like to do it on sat/sunday of next week (30 and the 31st) because i have off.

Thanks a ton, let me know if anyone has any other suggestions!

-Nate.

Just kidding

LMFAO, i get those responses all the time, but they are serious.

Something like 80% of Americans dont know New Mexico is a US state.

Yeah, if someone is willing to loan the space ill definitely pitch a few bucks at you, or return the favor in some way(help you on a project).

i don't have a garage, but I'm working in santa fe, again, from 1/3-march. I'd love to stop by and help. Really, I'd love to. Really, I'm so bored.

Hmm thanks a ton for the offer, im not completely sure what im going to do- but a 3 hour drive is a long drive to get everything installed, and if i dont complete it id have to come back another day.

I really appreciate the offer though!, let me know when you get your kit together, we can meet up and cruise some mountain roads!

Well, still looking for a place to use =(, if you are in albuquerque and have experience with turbo kits, it would be well worth it for me to make the drive!

Ahh i might have to go the ghetto way and go to walmart, buy a big tent thing, tie tarps around the sides, and hope no snow gets in =(. This being my only weekend off in forever kind of sucks!

Wish me luck fellas.

DO IT
That's how we did the head rebuild on my buddies Porsche 944 in the parking lot of our dorm. Thing was in the back corner of the lot for a week with a big tent over it.

I'm in ABQ. But as soon as this snow storm passes you're welcome to use my single car garage for a day or so, we got a pretty sizable shop you could use as well, but I'd have to change you.

While you're at it join the local email list.
