The first thing I did was to start getting the parts I needed to get her put back together, this included a 16g turbo, exhaust manifold, downpipe, j pipe, and a lot of other parts.
A lot of the parts I got where used, like the fp exhaust manifold and the radiator and fans.
As I was putting her together other parts became available, before I knew it I had a fairly good build going.

Once I got her put together I was able to drain the ancient gas left in the tank, change the oil, change all the coolant, and fired her up. It was a super rough start up but she sat for five years. She has been doing much better, I also changed the bumper cover and got her all dialed in.

last thing to do is to get the new wideband fitting welded onto the Megan exhaust and finish fixing the drivers side lower radiator mount that was cut off during the previous build. And install the new fp green turbo that will be showing up this weekend.

Some more pics. Has anyone seen an oil cap like that? It’s not a snug as I would like and I can’t find a replacement anywhere.

I got my wideband o2 fitting tig welded in the exhaust, this was the spot the previous wideband was at so that’s why I put it there

Hooked up my wideband exhaust. Fired her up, and she runs but runs very rough, found a well respected guy from a friend to drop the car off to for some big time ecm tuning to get her as perfect as Possible with the 16g, once it’s all tuned up I’ll slap the fp green turbo on her and call it a day.

I also ordered my cx racing radiator-fan-shroud kit with a 2180 cfm rating. Should be here by this weekend! She is so close to being on the road again and I can’t fkn wait.

The cx racing radiator, fans, and shroud from eBay arrived. I believe the total cost was 260$? The guy said it would be about 2180 cfm, I was able to install it today and get everything wired up, I double checked with a few forum threads and was able to test it via ecm.
Overall I am happy with the look and once I start driving it I’ll be able to see how she does.
