    yeah, i was gonna do a diy kit from the word go.... i want a new engine first though, which i should be getting soon in the future, i just need to sell some stuff first.... anyone wanna buy an ampeg 15" cab, fender jazz needing some work, practically new dunlop bass crybaby, or a practically new epiphone eg bass lemme know.......... thats all bass guitar stuff if u didnt know...

    now that that is said and done... this is what i was planning for my kit, which will be on a z6 engine, most likely

    TD-05H OR TD-25 turbo
    any cheap used mani. thatll fit my block and wont be that crappy ebay kind
    450 dsm injectors, possibly 310's.. think theyll be enough?
    greddy type-s bov if i find a nice used one, if not ill just stick with cheapo dsm
    unsure on good wastegates, any ideas?
    vortech inline fuel pump
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33742 for an intercooler, or one of the other similar ones for sale, theyre on there a lot, unless i find a really nice used one
    jc whitney IC pipes cuttin myself
    all the necessary pipes and lines and stuff not worth mentioning now
    guages and whatever else i need will be bought
    apexi-VAFC to be bought
    greddy turbo timer, just cuz im impatient

    everything that needs to be welded will be done in the shop at my school which means either free or very cheap which is good for me

    i have enough money now for a complete swap and then some, but i need to sell that other stuff to boost my funds up for my turbo.. so unless i find something really worth buying now im just gonna wait til i have everything and do it all at once.. but please, feel free to give feedback on my kit im plannin for...... im only going to run 7-8 psi

    im prolly forgetting a lot, im tired again
