And as you can tell the bay needs ALOT of cleaning, gonna take alot of degreaser an some strut tower rust an tucking an deleting some stuff,

Will ive been ordering some parts as i go for the build to make it a little bit more fun than the stock set up :D

I decided to go with a 14b with a 16g hotside, think itll give me that low spool i want and some decent top end, im hoping to hit a little over 300whp with this turbo? (im unsure what other people have hit on 14b's with the 16g hotside?)

and i also decided im gonna need a gauge pod for my wideband an boost gauge so i jus went with this cheap one for the moment
