Yeah, there is no cheap way out my crisis, lol. If I got a Mazdaspeed Kit complete for a penny, I would still find my self spending 2k somehow to get it to work, LOL

Nah serious now, I started taking some stuff apart and it looks like i'll have to replace the headlights if I wanna even think about using the driver side charge pipe, LOL. (The 99-2000 headlight sits right on top of that big hole in the driverside chassis.

Wow... I sure wish I got that S Series turbo with the used GT-T2554r when I had the chance back in october... :(

ugh... dang I really don't wanna resort to custom junk. I want this installation clean, oem, and without shortcuts...

Do it right the first time. That's for DAMN SURE. I did a custom setup, and making everything perfect took forever. But it's all working perfect for the most part. I've had a couple small issues, one was pretty random, another was me taking a short cut and it caught up to me. Do it right the first time. If you need to get rid of your valueless 99 head lights let me know.

Oh this shall be done! And when my mazdaspeed setup is complete, everybody will want to trade their T2860's for my glorious journal bearing IHI turbo! Mwahahaha. Welcome to a new realm of performance...

With my high performance 2.25 dual exhaust matched with a free flowing "stock" resonator, "oem" cat, and 1 7/8's downpipe. My turbo kit will provide impressive spoolup, without insufficient back pressure or loud exhaust notes...

Welcome to the performance world of Cody Strife. Where nothing is the true, everything is permitted...

The stock MSM hotside pipes suck, just mod it to go down between the ac compressor and the chassis, and around the inside of the bumper, i have pics somewhere, let me look for them, also, 01+ headlights are like half a grand, used. instead of like 50, for better flowing charge pipes?

MSM lamps are the bomb. I'm swapping my standard 01 lamps out for MSM lamps sometime soon. Just need to find time for both parties to meet.
I've also located the MSM front lower bumper lip.

Enjoy. I like the styling, but mine is badly scratched from NJ potholes, road debris, pulling too close to curbs in parking lots, etc. :(
