    Well i'm not sure if you guys remember me, its been atleast 3 months now. but i was building a h22/23 frankenstein engine. I originally planning to go all motor or nitrous but i just recently went a different route. I had crower stage 2a cams in there and was planning to use it with the imagine engineering header. well when i recieve news that my header would not be made i decided to go turbo. that meant i had to switch out my radical cams. so i went with crower stage 1 cams that are made for street/turbo setups. I probably have $12000 invested in the engine. Port job, cams & camgears, bottom end work (sleeves, new crank and pistons), intake manifold, throttlebody, turbo w/ exhaust manifold & wastegate and intercooler, Golden eagle oil plumbing kit and a few other stuff to basically the convert everything to make the head work with the block.

    the engine right now looks a little different from those pictures because i repainted the block and i did some work to the oil pan to get the oil to flow better from the turbo(i borrow some parts from a G5 aka Gulfstream 5, a jet) I'll post more pictures when i start to wrap up this project. I would be done with it but i got laid off from my work for a full month so i dont have much money to mess around with.

    Yeah it would, already chipped paint on my thermostat housing trying to figure out where the ignition coil would go. This project is a pain in the ass. But, hopefully it will be done(running) soon. I'll post pictures soon since i have the ACT clutch and tranny put in.
