Thanks for your reply and I'll most definitely be checking out their fb page for info. I'll also post the link to the universal turbo kit below (differences include: Mine didn't come with the downpipe, only the flange to weld a down/up pipe to. I feel like my wastegate is bigger but I'd have to check. Intercooler piping will need fabbed for bov.)
As with the intercooler and piping: I had what "will be" the cold side ran with the intercooler mounted for a few months until I recently uncounted it and turned the existing piping into a fenderwell intake with a cone filter attached inside the bumper/fender corner. Seems to work alright and sound pretty great if I do say so myself lol. I had started mocking up the hot side to see what I needed to do and didn't get too far into it due to not having everything I needed together and tools/knowledge at hand at the time.....but I'm on the brink of that exact moment!!!
I feel like I won't be using this intercooler for too long as it seems fairly small. I'll go day by day with it and see how everything goes.
This entire build will be as safe and as strong as realistically/financially able as possible. I'm not looking to make it all completely indestructible but on that same note I won't be pushing the car to the point that it's "breathing heavy" if that makes sense.
As we all know, and is repeatedly thrown out, the main weak point of the car is the trans. With that, I'll be getting the trans upgrade kit along with installing the TransGo shift kit. I may even spring for a TEP transmission in the future if I truly feel like building this car.
The goal I'd like to hit for now is somewhere in the ballpark of 325hp/10-12psi (whichever is hit first safely). I'll of course turn it up eventually but that's where I'd like to be for this upcoming year.
Again, any and all help/advice/suggestions are super welcome.
Here's the link to the turbo kit I had ordered awhile back:
