    Hey guys im looking to drop a turbo into my 87 GT 1.9, i got an RS turbo manifold and a t3 ready to pair it. Im looking for recommendations on the setup or if anyone has a Rs turbo set up on theirs and could share pictures so i could get an idea of the route i want to take. Ive owned many turbo cars from factory but this will be my first attempt to building one from scratch. Ive read some of the forums here and they are very helpful im just looking for a little advice and first hand experience. Thanks!

    I know others here have done this here but I don't recall who.
    Are you using the stock intake or do you have a RS intake too?

    Stock intake I don’t plan on boosting too much. I do plan on throwing XR4Ti injectors, ecu, and vam

    The xr4 parts will make it job a lot simpler. Now just to find photos to get an idea of were everything goes!
