Last one is the car's current state. Runs like a scalded cat.

The hose is one of those "universal flex hoses" because I could not find any pre-molded ones.
The turbo is a TD05-16G. Had some minor issues fitting it but it works well.
About the pics, not sure since it let me do it but I was linking the pics from photobucket.

Yes. The car came with no exhaust so I had to build my own, so the setup is that of a DSM or VR4. I bought the dump pipe and turbo from CX racing, and then bought all my exhaust from Summit racing. It's a 2.5" system with a resonator and a stainless Magnaflow muffler. I cut and tacked it together and had a shop fully weld it (my welder sucks for thinwall stuff). It also has a 4-wire O2 sensor mod.

My evo 10 turbo can be installed but
Needs a lot to make it fit and cost too much.
I have spent enough on my car.
So when are you going to do a respray body work
Etc.

Your car must be an 88 model, it has the "latches" on the bonnet and the stays on the chassis to stop it coming through the windscreen in a accident.

Yep it's an 88 alright, and I wondered what those latches were for. :ugeek:

Nice work.

It took allot of work in the engine bay to get it back on the road. The people who had it before me absolutely butchered so much stuff that it took a bit to fix. I had to redo the injector wires, fan wires, fusable links. The mechanical's were nearly as bad, someone had drilled into the the water jacket to replace an exhaust stud, so I have a 10mm stud on #4 exhaust for that is sealed in (the rest are 8mm). I had to fix the fuel line that was cut (metal), and I am running a 4G63 oil pump balance shaft since the original was cut off. It was missing the timing covers and the starter plate (all are a BASTARD to find).

It's all good. I used a mighty max cover and modded it (lower) and found the top cover at a wrecker yard in Oregon.
