Heres a run of everything going into my car i've done put a k20A3 and then put a k20z1 in turbo'ed and cheap out on a few things like head studs and 24lbs of boost didn't last long so now i'm building it up right and i thought i'd post everything as I go. Thanks to Blueprint Racing for the great deal on the parts. Just got all the parts ordered and the block is with my old teacher at Ranken Technical College getting the sleeves put in and hoping to have it all completed within the month. Tell me what you think I've been working on getting it right for 3 years when i bought the car new and I'm hoping this will be the setup hoping to be worthy of round 2 of stomping the cobra fools around town.

Heres 4 before pics of the Car all dirty. The dirty empty engine bay. The turbo mani setup with the old .57trim turbo and downpipe with a tial wastegate everything is getting cleaned up for the new. Theres a bunch of pics of the custom tig welded intake manifold we made it works well just barely fits and makes it fun to change a timing chain. Then are some of the fuel pump and what the last engine looked before it blew when it went in before. I'm waiting on parts and to clean everything up and i'll post more

The last setup with the 57trim turbo that was a little cheaper well alot cheaper and 11lbs of boost it dynoed 280hp and like 260ftlbs at the wheels so i'm hoping that i can get more power. I had pushed it to 24lbs of boost for a while and thats what pushed it past its limits. Will have some more pictures of the parts and everything else as soon as everythings cleaned painted and arrives at my doorstep
