    Nice start. I'm wanting to do pretty much the same build. So I'm subscribed to this thread to see how it comes along. What size turbo you plan on running? Good luck!

    Edit: Just saw your other thread from a few months ago with the turbo size in it. Now I'm not sure which one to follow lol. This one I guess.

    Which meth kit are you going with? If you haven't decided, I'll suggest looking at AlkyControl.
    It's on jackstands.

    I was informed the one I mentioned was the best that's the only reason I recommend it. I'll check out AEM's just for my own curiosity and learning experience. Keep the pics coming.
