I'm stoked! The cars almost done! I just need to mount the I/C, radiator, plumb it, wire the haltech, and get the turbo and downpipe installed. Heres some pics:[attachment=30807:attachment]

I am using an FD throttlebody with a Greddy elbow, ARC intercooler off an R34 Skyline, Koyo Radiator. The turbo is a BB T04R with a Greddy log manifold and Turbosmart wastegate. I had the manifold and turbine housing ceramic coated. I'll post more pics as it comes along. What do you guys think?
