i'm the original owner, love this car, now it's time to do a big turbo upgrade.

I'll be doing the job the week of X-Mas so I'll pass on more info as it progresses..

Here it is as it sits...

This is the turbo kit from ARD mocked up on a spare B5244T5 long block.








Not impressed by the length of the oil feed line and would have been helpful it it cam with 90 degree elbows for the AN fittings both at the turbo and block.

Wrapped A-pillars look good! I want to do that with grey/blue-grey alcantara. Shift plate would look better IMHO if the color matched the seats...

I did this white an extra owners manual cover I had. Didn't like the look of it.

I'm not trying to push the max power quite yet, worried about cracking the walls....but I did pick up the spare B5244T5 just in case..

After getting things worked out (tuning, etc) I'll push it harder a little later, slowly...

just looking for 15-20 psi until I can get larger injectors...

Any suggestions would be awesome..
