Hey guys, I've been a fan of this site ever since i got my EP and I've bought a good few things from ppl here for this buildup so i figured i'd let yall in on the progress.

CURRENT SITUATION: I'm military and was running K20a3 w/Cybernation Stage 2 in Germany w/K-Pro... one problem... No K-Pro tuners in germany. tried to go easy on it but it only lasted about 3-4 months. ok i lied...i dicked around with it and blew it up... lesson learned there :dance:

Here I am about 1.5 years later... wiser and more patient.

Back in the States. Car is still in germany. I figured... WTF... put a K20/K24 in there while i'm at it... oh wait ... built internals... oh wait ... UKDM Type-R tranny... and on and on and on...

sadly i'm obessed and couldn't give up the EP3.

there is light at the end of the tunnel tho. the car will be back in my hands around JAN/FEB timeframe.

I will get the car built for turbo with low compression but tuned and running NA. Once I get it to where i am stationed at now in CO. I'll be handing the car over to CorsportUSA in Denver CO to install the new kit... a custom Peakboost kit pieced with some of the stuff i had left over from my Cybernation kit to include the T60-1 Turbo.

Advice is appeciated if you have any suggestions.

took off the Housing to get the wheel trim measuements to get the correct Housing from Peakboost (replacing my 5 bolt housing with a 4 bolt to use the Peakboost Sidewinder Manifold)

UPDATE!!! THE CAR TURNED OVER! But it still needs the k24a2 base tune put in it and then i'm waiting to hear word from Jeff on whether he smoothed out the A/F, timing, etc.
