Mine took quite long (2-3 days) due to me having a crate motor and troubleshooting issues. Usually greddy kits can be done within 3-6 hours.

Hrm, I could prolly come help some in the evening when I get off work. Hell, I'd want to be there just to look at the damn kit, never seen that one before. If the picture is correct, then it looks like they mount the turbo facing the other direction of everyone else...something I had thought of bit wasn't sure how it would work out.

Shoot me a PM with address and what not, and I'll see if I can't swing by. Also got a 330CC injectors that are possibly for sale :lol:

Hey, I'm in Troutman, off Buffalo Shoals rd. I remember your car from the Statesville auto-x. I was there, but did not run. Only wheel/tire setup I currently have is steelies with hard, dry-rotted 185s...would have been no fun one-wheel peeling the entire course.

I think I know the car you're talking about...NB? I think it has exhaust as well. I've seen him in Troutman three or four times...and I once drove by the Kangaroo gas station, and he was at the pumps. I would have stopped to talk to him, but I was on my way to work.

Come to think of it, it may have been you...pre-splitter.
