Turbo GAGT Build!
 
New and improved Turbo GAGT build thread.

Time to bring some life back to this section!

After several years of research and parts collection it seems the time has come to post a build thread. Ill do my best to keep this as up to date as possible.

Any and all comments/questions are welcome.


Now on to the pictures. The GA ready for the tear down.

This project has been nearly 3 years in the making and will be finished. If everything goes to plan I will be driving this car sometime mid- 2011.

Thanks I love the way the braided wire loom came out but the stuff was kind of a pain to get done right and I ended up having to redo it once before it came out looking like it did. lol

Things have been a little slow because of the holidays so I haven't updated much but I did get a few more parts from summit.

Possible mounting point for the regulator.

I ended up changing my mind on the routing of my fuel lines so I ended up having to purchase more fittings before I could put anything together.
