    Well I'm done building my turbo kit and I am just waiting on some gaskets. I know most people like the sound of a wastegate with an open dump tube but I am not one of those people. The CRX is getting a plumbed in dump tube. Here are the pics. I will do a full install write up if I get my gaskets before it fucking snows!

    Here is my messy hostile work environment with some crap I built.

    Here is the mani, turbo, wastegate, downpipe and dump tube assembled.

    The downpipe is 3" stainless steel but the tubing for the WG isn't. I couldn't find any locally and was sick of waiting. Hopefully it will be a running turbo CRX this weekend. Everything is already done, oil pan, injectors, charge pipes. everything. Just need to get my T3 and WG gaskets. So far it looks like I bought the CRX and turbo'd it for under $1000.

    those are custom items, fabbing them without the car is next to impossible .

    Everything fits perfect. I built most of it in the car.

    hell yea. Thats the way to do it. I did the same with mymanifold, but made a short tubular style instead. I never thought a manifold like that would fit in my car especially with the wastegate out like that....what motor mounts you using?
