I feel like your videos get more and more ridiculous as time goes on.

Pretty entertaining, keep em coming!

Haha he can have them when I'm done wrenching on the Galant! Darn old things are falling apart anyway. I think later this year I'm going to treat myself and get a brand new used set of coveralls...seeing that this set finally gave up after about 17 years of service. I'll probably keep the "Matt" name tag though.

That's cool Dustin and thanks for watching! I often stop wrenching to watch some of my favorite car vids too. Look for another interruption in the form of "part 2" coming late next week!

I feel like a crack head waiting to buy drugs or something. Man your videos are awesome and I (along with many others it seems) really appreciate you taking the time to make them. When I see that a new one is out I drop what I'm doing and watch it right away and I'm never let down. Thanks again Tom!

Haha! Well, at least the gusset is clean enough to be eaten off of...or at least I really hope it was.

Man, I truly appreciate that! I just can't believe how much fun this whole endeavor has been. The best part has been meeting so many cool and interesting people who are passionate about the car hobby. I tell ya, folks send me their pictures and stuff from all over the place and they are doing way more interesting stuff than I am! I want to see them make videos too! Thanks again for the support my friend, it means a lot to me.

Hi Everyone!

Here's the latest update where we choose the centerpiece of our modification plans - the turbo!

Project Street Sleeper Turbo Upgrade: Part 1 | YouTube

Torch the giant Lego man getting a little randy with the turbo box.

Pretty awesome! I am not a professional, but you were pretty aggressive with the port job, you aren't worried about cracking the housing between the O2 and turbo outlet ports on both the turbo and the o2 housing? I'm sure you know better than I, it looks great and will probably flow some good numbers. Love that coating.

Great video, Tom! I have to say, I kinda thought the HTA68 was coming. I'm going to go ahead and predict a cutout of some sort on the exhaust side of things...

An unrelated question that I'm not sure you can even answer in public; do you get any kickbacks from the guys you mention in your videos (ECMtuning, Forced Performance, Detective Coating)?

Thank you! My main concern is to make sure there is plenty of "meat" around the outer edge of the O2 housing for the gasket to do its job. I would suggest doing as much as you feel comfortable with, I guess my explanation would be that I've always done it this way with good results. It's the old "YMMV" thing I suppose. And I agree about the ceramic coating. I have always wanted to do it but was always in a rush to get things back together, etc. I am so glad I did. Justin does awesome work and I'm sure it'll help keep temps at bay in the cramped VR-4 engine bay.
