Hi...
I'm from Trinidad and tobago and I just bought a 1993 MX-6 with the KF 2.0 V6. I have no idea as yet if it is a KFZE or a KFDE. I am planning to turbocharge my car. I just wanna know if the KL's Exhaust manifold is the same as the KF. I've searched online and my search has always retunred 93-97 MX-6/ Probe 2.5 V6. Would it work on my KF???

Was it hard to come up with this:

- I researched every facet of this project for two years before attempting anything on it. Once i got started, it was fun and a good learning experience for me and my dad.

How long did it take to build your system:

- I did it slowly over probably 6 months. Would have been faster if I didnt make a how-to video for each step!

What is your knowledge about our cars:

- I started with just replacing the rear vcg, but now I know how to do everything, I'm only 20 right now, so this is pretty cool. I didnt know much, now I know more than most. Ive also done some crazy custom things no one else has done.

How much money have you spent on this all:

- About 1.8k so far. I made a thread on the prices of things.

What is your advice for people who wants to get boosted:

- its a long trip that will teach you how to do everything there is to do on this car. Make sure you have a car to drive while youre working on this one because nothing ever goes to plan. Took me a month just to get it running after i finished installing parts! Its tons of fun, but youll have to get your hands dirty! Watch all my how to videos! Also, do your clutch before you Turbo. You have to remove all the turbo components to replace the clutch!
