Default Hey y'all

The name's Jake. Im seventeen, and I live in East Texas but im from Houston. I bought my 99roadster in march for $2700 with 100k miles from the owner of the donut palace here lol. ******* steal. I have been lurking for quite a while because i do want boost but that is way down the line for me. I understand how turbocharging works and have helped friends boost various hooptys over the years. My eventual goal is 200whp with a small turbo and possibly meth injection added later.

Any way, here she is, awaiting a coolant reroute today

errr.. Just kidding. I lost my camera. Ill post some shish up when i find it.

I think your plan is bullshit. To get 200whp with meth you're going to need at least a 3076, nobody uses reasonably sized turbos around here...NOBODY



Welcome to the forum, I think you'll enjoy your stay here.

Price was pretty cheap for a 99 and for the mileage. Congrats.
