exactly man. since I can't buy the car I want for another 7 years I'm going for restoring my first car the way I want it. hopefully next paycheque + selling some stuff will at least get me the engine.

no idea, depends how much i feel comfortable tuning to... i'm MAF limited to about 400hp, and stock internal limited to about 500whp, so i'm going to be somewhat conservative for now and see what i can make just running the wastegate spring, which is 7 psi... that's if i can ever get the fking thing back together... it's always the little shit that delays you!

which bolt was it? did you use pb blaster on it? big ass breaker bar and hitting it with a hammer?

you'd be amazed at what you can do without an impact wrench... just have to learn to feel when it's going to break vs break loose!

we had my big breaker bar and that would just get the nut and bolt to rotate a little bit but not loosen. so we had one of us hauling on that with the other one hauling on a regular ratchet. we also drowned it in WD40.

the only other thing left to be done is plug the electonics into the struts themselves...and it looks like you need to drill holes for the rears.

and yes I have mechanical knowledge and experience. He needed the room and tools to do the install and noone else was offering so I did.
