Default College student looking forward to boost!

Hey guys. I've been reading this site for about a year learning as much as I can. I'm a college student and I own a Black 96. I am an active member of MX5Atlanta right now and will be active here now too. I got an internship this summer with Home Depot at headquarters so I finally have some cash to throw at a turbo. I bought a used T25 from a Saab yesterday in amazing condition and am looking forward to getting all the parts I need! My plans are 200hp with a Megasquirt and FMII kit with no turbo or electronics. I figured that if I have the money to do it right, I might as well get the kit minus the turbo so I have fewer headaches. Anyway, here's some pictures of my car and I look forward to the next couple of months!

Welcome! There is $15,000 in parts on this car, and it's not even boosted? I seriously doubt it... Typo, or am I misinterpreting 15K as $$ instead of miles or something?!?! Lol

Well not as much parts as total money spent. Mostly getting the engine to run nice because the PO didn't tell me everything that was wrong with the car.

That's an insane amount of money on a $2000 car. I'm assuming that 15k includes shop labor?

Just on some of the engine stuff. I've definitely been through a lot with this car! I've done everything on it besides the 60k and my radiator was changed at the same time.

Not all of it went to my engine. Maybe 2k. A lot of it was small stuff that added up

Ok cool, whatever.

If you keep spamming other threads with stupid posts like "cool man" you're gonna get banned. we don't care if you need to make a FS/WTB thread or PM someone.

I was trying to find actual threads that I could relate to. Yes, I was trying to get my post count up, but I wasn't just going down the list. I've watched the video from MCM, I gave advice on suspension, gave advice on not buying cheap parts. I didn't just say cool man on all those posts. Two of my posts could be looked at as just saying cool.

I'm not trying to spam. I want to be able to use the information here for my turbo build. I saw injectors that would be perfect for me and wanted to jump on them before anyone else did. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Feel free to reset my post count.

You have his permission to reset his post count. How nice, for him to allow that.

I seriously was trying not to upset anyone. I said I'm sorry. I messed up, I'm not wanted here, so I will leave. Have you guys ever thought that you could be losing potential donators? I'm sure this site isn't free to run. Good luck with the turbos

lol have you ever thought your shitty spam posts are not worth the money of you staying. Losing noob douchebags that can't follow the rules isn't a loss at all. You are just mucking it up for people that come along after you and have to sort through your shitty posts. You need this site more than it needs you. Figure that out, follow the rules, and no one will bother you.



This thread now has worth.

I think I have about 15k in parts, I try not to think about it. You can see what that actually buys you in my build thread.
