looks good. let me know how it goes and if you need any more advice on the finer points of the swap.

btw, what are the specs on that turbo? where did you get it from?

still interested in the exhaust manifold?

Im really interested for the exhaust manifold, i sent to you a private message

That turbo is a Garrett TO4E .60trim with .63 stge 3

The original turbo was a TO4B V1/V2 with .63 stge 2, that was my turbo in the BP engine

One question..
What is the gearbox from ?

The fact that its cable clutch and is doesn't have the top gearbox mount, i am assuming its a GC gearbox ?

Please tell me your going to do some work on that engine before you boost it? If you dont do the valve springs you wont be able to rev to 7k.
Looks neat though.

Sweet. Modifications eh? What does that consist of... MSP LSD? Keep us updated for sure! With the n/a trans that means you can use the GS axles still and dont have to mess with the hubs, correct?

If u mean new like never used, ummmm not really, i have a BP Turbo engine on the car. i just make a new set up with another engine, turbo, ecu, but its a low budget project for my personal satisfaction.

unfortunately its been a unproductive fall/winter
for my project. I was set on buying another car but couldnt get a loan. The company i was working for went out of business and I've just been soaking up unemployment and going to school. While its decent money its not much to build an engine on :tdown:
