    Word.

    I would go turbo, but my directions have changed. A well setup turbo system should not fail if everything is good (drain, pumps if necessary etc). Nothing is better for the street then boost on a dial!

    I've thought about it but I keep hearing people tell me not to go with a rear mount system. But I've seen cars make some decent power on them. But I like way a font mount looks.

    Yea I've seen the thread (either here or on Tech) about what happened. Pretty shitty. Good thing I found out now because I seriously considered ordering from him.

    I realized I wanted to try and fab my own kit. Metal work is interesting to me. Beyond that, waste gated boost sells it over and over. Sure, you can wastegate a Procharger or the like ,but you'll be spinning the shit out of the blower, all the time. Screw that.

    I love Prochargers though, hell... I have a kit sitting at my house ready for an F1A. Not going through with it though.

    I think thats what I'm going to do too is fab one up. I just love the sound of a turbo spooling up and the wastegate dumping exhaust.

    Whats up buddy, I'm going to get it done as soon as I can. Hopefully by mid next year though so we can still cruise until I tear it apart. Good luck, it doesn't look that complicated after we took that back cover off.

    I see your post got edited because of a comment you made HAHAHAHA did you say something naughty? Santa's not going to visit you if you did haha. Good job Joey.

    For those running a turbo, whats a good BOV/wastegate to run. I think I've decided to just boost a stock bottom end 5.3 for now since this is my first time getting into the FI world. I dont want to dump thousands and thousands and thousands into this when it's my first turbo build.
