i've been enjoying your build trying to retain as much as i can with it, thankyou for the compliment my front bumper(came black replacement) has been repainted my trunklid is now replaced with a wingless and my finish panel (new one to me) is at a body shop getting color matched. Your build is amazing with that smurf i might bug you if thats alright with questions.

I tried to create as big a safety net with this motor as possible, lower compression, higher boost, less timing etc. Bug away, I'm still figuring things out.

Despite being a little too stretched/flush for my taste, that looks really really good.

Just get a PNP version, and get used to it before going turbo.

I don't see a 1.8 rear end on your list. That is something that will be needed, and most likely sooner rather then later.

Ahh I missed that in the list. Check out this thread for a good way to boost your 1.6. He did everything in the correct order and his car has been doing good.
