I'm sooo looking forward to see what kind of numbers this thing is going to put down.

I also find it odd that the GN never came with a manual trans. option, although I once read that when the '89 TTA came out, the automatic was actually a faster car than the manual version. I guess this would make sense, as it's easier to keep a turbo spooled with an automatic than a manual.

well after getting the exhaust wrapped and the power steering all plumbed, I now move on to the start of wiring the beast all up. I still have much more to do yet so wish me luck! also I did swap the stock turbo back on as I did not want to break the engine in and chance wiping out a new turbo as well

Spring has arrived to the WI area and now I can get back into my build. Today I sent out my a/c lines to get a slight modification done to them so I can mount the radiator, trans cooler, fan, and intercooler all in one shot. This will get interesting....

Thanks 98318ti. It has been a challenge to get things this far, but hopefully I am on the home stretch.

well after test fitting the front bumper and mounting the intercooler, I think I am getting close. I also connected all the piping for the turbo, intercooler and mass air...hmm, where did I put that air filter now?

Its been a long while since I last posted, due to life getting in the way of my project fun but I have been tinkering here and there. Here is the beast in its current form, I still am going to get it repainted and the little spot of rust fixed but its coming along. I also am trying to figure out a better way to place my air filter but do not have much room to work with.
