Gidday! I remember this build from lurking on the astina gt forums, so clean!

Turbos literally the last thing it needed. Will be a street car that goes to a track every now and then. I haven't driven it for almost 3 years because I blew a headgasket.

Hence finally building engine/gearbox and slapping a snail on.

Here's the current state...

Reckon that intercooler is big enough? :D

Was that radiator custom made or an off the shelf piece?, I'm looking for a mishimoto alternative that might be easier to get here

Why the 626 ball joints over 323?
And is it '97 specific or is it all GF 626... '97-/02 is ok?

Pwr off the shelf. Had to be made though which took 3 weeks. Was contemplating Mishimoto, would have been more expensive though. Best I was quoted was $600 USD that includes fans and shipping. We had a sale here recently so PWR was cheaper. Yet to work out fan placement yet as room is tight with the turbo/manifold combo.

Intercooler come from a skyline. Needs a bit of modification to fit how i want it. It was cheap since it was used

GF 626, Can buy them separate from the control arm. Otherwise would have had to buy new control arms.
