Your exactly right on us not posting on the forums much. I have a Turbo GA that I built a few years back but I am also thinking this is the last year for it. I want to build a older Chevy truck turboed. You are very limited on what you can do with these cars and if you do build it up it cost a fortune. Luckily for me I stayed patient and built mine a piece at a time and had a lot of help on parts along the way. My Turbo build would cost the average person probably close to $5000. I did mine for under $2000. My GA is fast but I don't have the transmission and the gearing to keep up with likes of bigger built vehicles. If I lose at all it's on the top end.

However, I do have a friend who was like this. He modified a newer generation Firebird for years, when he was done he drove it for 2 months like a puss and sold it. I see so much of him in this thread.

I would buy the whole turbo kit, depending on your price.
Screw sleepy he will have it sitting in the garage for a decade, then install half of it one summer, then the other half for next summer, to just finally have it all installed, only to store it in the garage 90% of the time

Sorry for the delay. I haven't done much with the car yet but I will hopefully start tearing it down soon.
