Thanks! I spelled build wrong. Classy.

Yeah, the BOV is extremely loud, I need to get some more videos after I put the "good" engine in.

Thanks!

The engines themselves are a dime a dozen, you can usually get an entire car (turbocoupe) for 500 -1000 bucks. However, I learned the hard way that just like any engine, you will wan to have it "gone through", and with a swap like this, lots of the factory stuff will not be used.

I ran my Turbo Coupe to 195k and it still ran strong. But it rusted out here in PA. Its had a good powertrain, sold it with holes in the subframe for 500$ for the powertrain.
Really neat car to the op.
