      My budget cabby winter built. 16vt FTW! My budget for this budget turbo build was $2000 MAX-not including and Advil for the headaches. With patients and some luck i was able to purchase all the parts i needed via kijiji, ebay and most importantly the classifieds here on Vortex. The work was done by myself so this kept costs down. My goal is 220whp at 8.7psi- daily driver.

      Don’t mind the messy engine bay- it will be cleaned up before it hits the road!
