The car still has some ways to go before its done (boosted that is). But now begins the fun part and that building the turbo set-up.

I'll take plenty of pics in the process of the turbo build.

Enjoy :D

OMG!! You are officially the baller of this forum!
Didnt you supercharge your automatic before?
Then did a manual swap?
Now you're doing a more than impressive turbo build?!?!

Most members here would be very envious of you, me included!! :cheers:

BTW, how much did your manual conversion cost?
Its something that i might be considering myself later on :)
