As you can see I have a long way to go and I belive the progress with this is gonna be SLOW at best. I've already spent more than the Wifey wanted me to so it's time to hit the Overtime to make this happen.

If you guy see anything missing or something I should fix let me know. :twothumb:



Update 02-20-2008
Guys It's really comming along looks like all I have to purchase is smaller things and the most important is the WIDBAND. I've just about run out of my Incometax money so I'm gonna have to start useing my actual paycheck from here on out. LOL


Update 02-21-2008

I Purchased a Evo Fuel pump today and I decided not to get a EGT gage just yet.

I need to get a couple of things from you guys. I'm about to search for it so If I get the answer before had I will edit with my findings. I need to get the exact info for the Extended studs so I can go to Autozone to buy them Locally. Also I need a Part number for the NGK Plugs one range Colder. THANKS GUYS TO ALL THE PPL I HAVE PM'D AND HAVE HELPED


Update again 04/11/2009

Ok I had hit a down time with money but I'm back to working on getting this thing in. I have Took off the Powersteering, and the AC so I have plenty of room to that side of the block. I plan on getting the oil pan installed tomorrow and just plugging it until I'm ready to put the turbo on. I had sold my old evo8 turbo and mani but I have already ordered another one.

all id say is note the studs for the spacer. but you can still find them at auto shops. It took me a while only because i was looking for the wrong pitch initially. :dunno: oh well lol

plus you can pull those in preparation for later, because they all wont come out with the same ease and it gets time consuming.

On the oil sandwich adapter, check with Summit Racing; they have one that fits our cars for like $27.00 from PermaCool.

Also, if you need any welding done I can bring my MIG up to Abilene...I know a lot of the shops up there want outrageous prices for simple exhaust work. :wavey:

dont forget to figure in for a beater. :) there will be downtime on this car in the first few months you turbo it. it isnt common for an install to go 100% as planned with no issues.

good luck, buddy!

LOL I hope there isn't much down time. I do have a Van that I can use but I'm hopeing not to run into to many issues. The actual installation might be months and months from now. I'm gonna install all the eletronics and fuel componets first and then after when evertyhign is ready I will try the install.

Thanks for the heads up tho.

On a side note Is 200.00 for a AEM wideband(used) a good deal???
or where esle should I go

200 for a uego is very good. granted theyre 270-300 new, getting $100 off is a fantastic deal.

Most everyone uses ebay intercooler piping. You can get it welded to get rid of some of the couplers. But if your patient you can find on here someone selling a set of aai\tearstone piping. I actually think i saw someone parting out an xtech kit. not sure if that kits piping is the best but it all fits...
Edit: The xtech kit is for the V6 sorry.
