    So I received a small 16G from a member on here yesterday in the mail. Here are some before and after pictures of it and some other parts that I've received recently or had stowed away. Afterall, I want this car to be aesthetically pleasing as well as a good performer! I'm still working on sanding and polishing the compressor housing so I'll post up pictures when it's all done! image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Well here's a rough idea of what the turbo setup is looking like now. I have a fresh set of turbo hardware on its way to me so that'll finish the look off well I think. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Picked up used lightweight flywheel to replace my damaged one. One part closer to getting this engine package back together!

    I figured while I was waiting on parts and whatnot, I'd give the transmission a looking at and a good clean. I knew the transmission was maybe a little dirty from daily use or whatever, but oh my god this thing was NASTY. Below I've posted some pictures AFTER 5 hours of tediously cleaning the thing with brake cleaner, a microfiber rag, and a pick. There may be an easier way to do this but there's so much crap in the smallest places all over this trans I have to use a pick to loosen it up first. I vow to never let any part of my car get this nasty ever again (even though it isn't my fault this time). Onwards and upwards I suppose. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg
