    that looks like a pretty poor condition turbo how much did you get that for? i hope thats not rust around the compressor wheel... did you check for shaftplay? Inside the turbo should be nice and clean, the outside doesnt matter at all

    and youknowwhoibee was imitating the sound of a turbo... then the blowoff valve

    The car looks a little... wet. :)

    Very nice budget setup! When are you heading off to tune and dyno? I'd like to see the results.

    ok so....today i thought i would do my oil lines which i did and had a good time doin it......was a little tricky fittin my hand and arm underneath the intake manifold so i can thread in the connector for the oil feed....which i am not using a t-fitting....but a 4 way cross....just in case i decide to use an oil pressure gauge i can just unthread the plug and pluger in.......i also got the charge pipe to the intake manifold done because i found a rubber hose to connect it......now to finish this i need my downpipe made, which i will do at school this week...and i also need to get 2 90 degree rubber hoses to connect the turbo's pipe to the intercooler....after that i am pretty much done...maybe ill buy an fmu or find some dsm 450's......all n all an easy very low budget turbo setup ( so far only spent 20 bucks!!! lmao) enjoy the pics
