Operation ASPIRE

yeh its not focus related. but its pretty neat if you ask me. My buddy decied he had this brillant idea to turbo his ford aspire. he got a turbo from a stock Dodge Cummings. haha yeh that thing is huge. Well so far its all put together. As of tonight he has to hook up the feed line, change oil, exhaust, downpipe and few others. I'll try to get some pics.

Are you talking about the turbo from a 6.7L diesel Cummins engine? That might be way to big for a little Aspire 1.3L. But if you manage to get it working good luck to you guys lol
