    I had a friend who was selling this. Its a t3/t4 turbonetics and garret hybrid. Brand spankin' new for $300. So i jumped on it. Tommarow im buying an intercooler, and in a few more weeks a lovefab shorty manifold. IM HAPPY, and i needed to tell someone.

    you must be the 21003930303209 person I've seen post a blurry pic of their compressor. What's up with that?

    buy it. finding one that fits and goes the right way is nearly impossible. most of those are from fords and other rwd setups with the turbo on the side of the motor, not on the front

    well, what do you think would be better? Theres the guy selling the DP, and i also know someone selling just the 5 bolt flange for $10. So should i buy the pre-bent and ready to go down pipe, or buy the flange and get a new pipe bent?

    as long as its a 2 1/2 incher, i'd buy it. welding pipe onto a flange correctly isn't exactly easy

    Tonight i picked up an intercooler for $150. It should fit really nice in the EF grill. my next purchase will be a loveFAB "shorty" manifold. Its a discontinued manifold, but still in great condition. And also the IC piping. Both of those should be around $500.

    IC looks kinda small. do you have any pics of it up to something else? at least it's pretty long.

    If you live near Maryland Joe from Tempestracing.com could build you a custom DP.
