Default New NB owner in Milwaukee area

Greeting all! I just picked up this clean NB with 74,000 miles on it. I'm the 3rd owner.

Plans are to turbocharge it using a Garret GT2554 and use Megasquirt for the engine management. So far I'm leaning towards Megasquirt PNP but still have a lot of reading to do.

My buddy has a shop in Delafield WI where he does auto repair and fab. We are tossing around the idea of using this car to develop a turn key turbo charging solution at an affordable price.

I will post a build thread in the DIY Turbo sub forum in the near future.

Very clean car, this one was for sale in Illinois or something wasn't it? I was *this* close to driving to look at this before I picked up my new to me NB. Congrats on the find and welcome to the forum. Post info as you build your system, people are always looking for affordable turbo solutions.

Thanks for the warm welcome! This car was out of MN actually, the MSP area of the state. Thankfully, the owner met me in Eau Claire, WI so that took a couple hundred miles off the journey.

Luckily this car has never seen a winter and was babied her whole life... until now.
