    Dude that's awesome. And as @BoostedK20 said I've been down the same road as you. Although only 8 years of owning the car and a hood through my windshield lol.

    Good luck with it man and enjoy. Btw how much power did you make?

    Yea it's a similar journey. I haven't had the car tuned yet. It's frozen up here in the far north east so that will have to wait until spring. Should be fun!

    EFR EP3 build

    Taking a look back at the build up to where the car started out:

    Car used to be a swapped, ported jrsc car: aftercooled, meth, e85, etc. That was a fun setup while it lasted...


    Well after many years of pushing the roots blower to new limits- decided to move on and really start the project I've always wanted to do with this car. Started by selling off the entire supercharger setup and tearing into the guts of the car getting rid of everything that either didn't work or deemed unnecessary. Things like ABS, SRS, cruise, EVAP, heater core, blower unit, radio, etc. were all ditched





    I've always wanted to own a turbo car- and I figured now was the time to do the conversion. Before jumping into the kit- decided to prep the chassis for the conversion. Baby steps

    Finishing up the interior and cleaning up all the wiring.




    Made a carbon dash insert to move gauges and what not into 1 central location. Don't mind the sticker bomb- it's been since removed for the stock silver look



    Gutting the EVAP system and replumbing the fuel tank to vent properly

    EFR EP3 build

    Well sadly I didn't take any pics of the build up of the next phase. The EFR kit from full race was my first attempt at a turbo setup and I have to say- it didn't come out half bad. The car isn't tuned yet and still needs a couple bugs worked out but for the most part- she is ready to go once spring hits. Here she is in hibernation:
