Well I've been lurking for far too long without starting a build thread so here we go.
This started off as a straight trade for my Mazda in Easley, SC. I was happy till I realized the lack of a** on the highway; going from being able to cruise at well over 90 to being limited to 82mph top speed was a bit of an issue in Atlanta.
I started looking around to try to find a viable swap. I went through the "I want a 4bt" stage that ended quickly when I looked at the weight of one.
The 4.0 looked promising but ended up that it was going to cost much more than I wanted to spend on my motor.
Coming from the Import world where when you have a power problem you just slap a turbo on it, I made the most logical decision and decided I would go against the crowd. I bought a turbo kit. It is actually a custom kit built by a shop in Asheville. So without further delay I'll start to share as much information as I possibly can. The turbo is already mounted on the bracket as a mockup. It is a Borg Warner 53mm.
Ill even add in my suspension build as it comes to fruition.
