Default Hey everyone

I'm new here, thinking about either boosting or swapping (and then boosting) my 92. See you around!

Welcome

Put location in profile, description of car in signature.

Both of these will help us help you later.

Awesome job finding the Meet-n-Greet section and posting here, just keep reading stickies.

Look forward to seeing where you decide to go with a turbo build. I just finished one after 6 months of help from this forum. It's well worth all the reading and work!

That's the only way to go.

Once you figure out what you're doing for engine management (highly recommend MegaSquirt), get started on that first.

Doing this, as well as other support systems (beefier clutch and diff), before you go turbo will mean that you not only encounter less problems, but can just enjoy the boost when you get there.

Good call. I am going to start with suspension. My radiator is getting tired as well, so I will probably upgrade that in the near future in anticipation of boost.
