man same here i can't wait to see it run too , but i'm still missing a few parts to do a full set up . but after I got it running and tunned I will clean it up alot. it look dirty the way it is now . but getting it running and making sure its all good is more important then making it look good but I sure can't wait to get it running.
LA3 ecu and tunner needed and inline 255lph fuel pump ajustable fuel presure regulator. hoses and a few other nick nacks.

well I did it I bought parts on the Credit Card not a good thing , but I expected my normal xmas bonus from work but i got 1/3 of what I usaly get not good the boss told me it was not a good year. but if I had know that I bet I would have bough the parts anyway.
I will do some work on a few friends cars to help me pay for my new parts nothing expenvive just a china turbo a bov and a boost controler, all cheap . I will keep you posted on how this china turbo performs. so here are a few pics.

I instaled the spec cluch kit today. it fit perfect , since this was a custom order I was not sure it would fit , you know fwd and rwd mix up different flywheel and all.
so to compleat this project. I need a good engine wirering harnest and a wideband o2 sensor kit and some time I got 90% of the parts. but cash is low and the CC are hurting. so i got to pay some off , and save some cash but this is ok since its a long term project.

I did from .48 to .63 this engine was from a automatic thunderbird so the turbo was much smaller on the automatic so i instal a china turbo for cheap . looks good looks like I got a good one but I will only know after I start it. but I got to save some cash before i can work on this project more. maybe I get a 2nd job to make some extra cash.
