So the stock twins have now been removed and some parts were sent off to be chromed. This should add some bling under the hood for sure!

So we are hoping to have the project completed within the next three weeks. Here are some of the components going into the build. The next pics I post should be of a engine being put together!

Engine is in the car and almost ready to test and tune. I bought a Mishimoto radiator and fan shroud but I am not sure if we are going to be able to get it installed at the moment may have to check with the gurus on here who have done it to see how involved it is. I looked at some of the related threads but did not see one with all of the info I was looking for. At any rate I was hoping to debut the car at Formula Drift Atlanta but it does not look like it will be ready before then.

What downpipe are you using now?. BTW I noticed the serpentine belt has come off! lol

I might make the transition from na-t to a gte swap soon as well. Yours is looking super clean though!

Swap is pretty much done! Still have to get a few more parts polished and get the engine dressed up. Did the first dyno tuning runs yesterday and it registered 321hp @10 psi. Going to tune it for more boost with hope of achieving 425-450hp.
