I have been slowly collecting the parts needed to do this since I got this car a month and a half ago. My friend and I were making some parts for his 3000GT yesterday and he urged me enough that we pulled the Geo in to start working on it. I had a slow day for work so I figured why not. We went ahead and made the exhaust manifold yesterday afternoon. I am still working on the intake manifold for the Holley carburetor I will be using in blow through form. But so far I have the blow off valve, wastegate, GT2052 turbo and exhaust manifold. Not too many parts left to get this thing running. I leave for vacation next week. But, I do plan on having this done if I can help it by the end of March. Here is the first set of pictures.

We upgraded both the turbos, installed an AFC, 450cc injectors, fixed all his boost leaks and made a bolt in pipe for a crushed 1G BOV. Only thing left on that is install his Walbro 255 pump from his turbo Mirage and a wideband and a boost controller. Then we can tune it. But will keep it at wastegate pressure for now on teh new turbos and install the boost controller later this spring I am sure. I am trying to get him to finish his Mirage as it has been sitting too long.
