List of modifications:
- 3D printed SR20 engine swap, including intake manifold, fuel rail, pulleys and turbo manifold
-scratch built down pipe
-TKdiecast radiator, Garett turbo, cone filter, blowoff valve and oil cap
-scratch built pressure gauge for fuel rail, all piping, throttle linkage
-dual catch can setup
-various engine bay decals, warning/logos etc
-mostly scratch built exhaust set up from downpipe to tip, including catalytic converter and resonator
-metal dampers
-metal handbrake cable
-TKdiecast Work Equip 40 wheels and tires
-interior airbrushed into Splash Paints' Burgundy interior paint

I think that's it!

Engine bay also extended on the passenger side to accommodate the turbo kit. Only parts carried over from original engine bay are battery, brake booster and maybe the radiator fan.

nice result. i think i have said it before, but the interior looks great and very fitting for its time period.
the engine may not be period correct, but it looks cool and well made.

Thanks Alex! Well technically the engine is completely incorrect but this is a VERY common swap on these cars and I kept it in the family!

Another masterpiece!! Amazing work and great outcome from a car what not a lot off customizers would choose. And as always the engine bay looks epic as the rest of the car.

Lovely done! I like all the details, the engine looks great and the underside looks fantastic with all the rivets and weathered look. Well done!

Everything already said about the great build: :10:

Just... could you imagine to add a lil black to the inside of the exhaust?
