Still busy, almost done with summer school (last week). I got some parts together this month for my first bolt on. i ordered Garrett GT2560R (GT28R) turbo, S15 3 Layer Metal Exhaust Manifold Gasket, Turbo Inlet Gasket, and Circuit Sports Turbo Lines.

I'm still missing the S15 adapters so i won't have to get pipes customed and welded. Next time I'll do more research and get things together at one time. Too many back and forth trips to TF Rolling Eyes. I took "direct bolt on" literally lol

I decided to go with the S15 turbo rather than the GT2871R because of reliability issues. I'm going to stick within the 250-300hp range because of the stock bottom end. Just dont have that paper to rebuild it right now.

altogether tax'd around 1.1k, its silly how a small peice of thin metal like the turbo inlet gasket cost 20 bucks.

when TF dave showed me the S15 adapter i will need to make the swap easier, i was thinking hmm that should cost me around $50 atleast. then i asked for the price he said $120, im like wtf what kinda hobby have i gotten myself into lol

BIG NEWS

Turbo swap done. I just have no time to be working on this car, so I'm selling it. I need a comfortable DD, maybe a S2K or IS300.

Buy it!, if you find a buyer who buys it, $50 to you (paypal or in person cash), spread the word!

10,500K with rims
9K without

Very Negotiable

I want to work on it, reason why I didn't go full cosmetics off the bat. Thats why i put in turbo/manifold my first bolt on, which took me almost 1 month to do since I have no time at all.

You can call me whatever you want, but I've spent more money on my car than alot of you in 3-4 month time spam. Just shows I wanted to work on the car. I don't buy cheap knock off shit but went with quality because thats what i want in my car.

Its simple, if you dont have the time to work on your car, dont have that kind of car. I didn't know i was going to be jammed for next school year so basically I want a normal car for now.

if you're serious/dedicated, keep it and get a beater for DD. i seriously do not understand why people dump so much money into cars and then sell them. you NEVER get back what you put in.

shit happens - plans change.
Since season is almost over, I doubt that he's going to sell the car soon for that kind of money - but good luck with it.
