turbo zx2 build thread

I been a member here for a while, looking for tips on boosting my zx2, so I decided to share my build with ya'll. I posted it on FJ a while back so some of ya'll may recognize it.

Holy cow, you must be pretty attached to that thing by now.

Nice build.

Still not complete. Working on beefing up the tranny now and a few details to wrap up with the motor before I can even think about dropping it back in. Then I have to work on fuel setup and figure what route I want to go with for tuning. Hoping to be in the 400-500 range when all is said and done.

Wow. Really impressive stuff you've got going there. I agree that it's pretty cool how you've kinda documented all of it over time.

Its a very nice car, but it seems you had wayy too much bad luck. And i know you were trying to stay original and I respect you for that, but with thousands you invested in this car you could have been running 10's in a rear wheel/ awd car. To me overall speed is what matters at the end of the day, not so much being original. thats MY opinion and I don't mean to step on your toes. I did enjoy reading the writeup!
