When he drilled the oil drain, the metal shavings didn't occur to me at first. But JB welding a flange on there and JB welding a BOV on is hilarious...

Some of his other work wasn't too bad.

The JB weld blew my mind... but when I saw him break out the hammer to gouge a hole into the sheetmetal for the piping. Oh Lord. Alcohol and turbo installation do not mix. Did anyone read it all the way through? I do kind of wonder if the guy came back and posted any more after page 2. There's going to be parts coming off that car every time he drives it.

I read through about 8 pages then the trolls came in.

I ahev to say tho, the moderator that was whining about the value of the IS300 dropping sounded like a douche.

This is hilarious, the best quote I saw:

"I would hate to see the other jobs you have done.
In all honesty, this should be a sticky on how NOT to boost your IS."

I read all 13 pgs. All the OP does is defend his work, tell people to stop hating...but at the same time he says he realized the consequences of posting it...so I'm confused why he was complaining about getting flamed...

Anyways, no additional info was posted about the car. A bunch of losers from Real Home Made Turbo joined and said lots of stupid stuff.

One guy challenged everybody to race his turbo Civic @ 10psi. Lots of other s__t-talking, yada yada yada.

Thread is locked.
