Oh, and for the record, I'm pretty sure the last car I saw with a turbo this big was a mk4 Supra.

Giggity.

Good to see the build is going well man. I have a friend who is a paraplegic due to a job site accident. He is a big Honda fan and did a similar tranny and hand control swap on his 92 Civic hatch. His biggest issue was getting in and out of the racing seats. His solution, he adapted and installed a swivel seat mechanism to the seat. I just gave him a call as I thought it may make your life easier. The exact bracket that he used is a Garelick 75090. It allows the seat to swivel, lock in place and slide forward and backward. It's made for a boat. He had to do a some fabrication to make it work, but it works well.

Man...I have to practice transfering to a car and back from a wheel chair, then the practice of using only one arm/hand to hold the torque steer as I barrel down the 1/4 mile...lol

That snail is a nice GTX-3582R. Same type Jared and Stolle used in their cars.

Wow, that's cool. Transfering will be hard. Thanks for the information. I will definately check it out.

Wow! love seeing all the parts together. Your engine is actually going to look alot like mine! Who built that intercooler for you and what are the specs on it? It looks like something that would work great at the track
