Thanks for the compliements..... :bigthumb: they are much appreciated!

The damage.... hmmm...... I'd have to add it up. You know what that stuff runs.... the GTE ran about $2500 all told and the 6 speed was prolly $5300 all told...... other than that it's typical stuff. The damage was a lot!

I'm usually not impressed with alot of stuff lately, but I have to say, this is definately a job well done! The car looks amazing and the fact that it's a 97 black HARDTOP that's now a full single turbo TT is in my opinion is just extremely baddass and would net ALOT of cash if you were to sell it.

well, thanks again, you know it's this board and all you guys that make the project go....

I'm actually running a JDM ecu - no stalling issues since it's map. Today/tomorrow the AEM is getting pants-tuned.....

The JDM auto ecu is PNP and runs my single with the USDM harness, resistor pack, cams and ingnitor.....

I'm happy you like it, I take it as confirmation from a very trusted source that it was done well!

the turbo is a T4 flange. It spools really fast. I have been having troubles with the aem learning curve, but I'm making progress. I don't want to rush and squeak my motor. I don't see any need to reduce the exducer housing ar, should be good for 500 with a 93 or more octane. When I have dyno #'s I'll post them

i have a SSAC mani and same intercooler for my na-t

the GE mani is very nice, I have one and it's totally plug and play for the GE, not fitment issues. The GTE mani required the use of a jam nut (2 actually) and a shortened stock exhaust stud as well as opening some holes for the studs with a hand drill by .030". I have pix of the GE mani on my NA-T motor, if you want to see them I can put them on my flickr account.

As far as getting the same turbo, contact me and I can help you there. Please use PM or email.
