My turbo build is taking forever, not a kit, MY build. People waiting on parts or upgrading other things while its down.
Is this common for everyone? being a part of the "jackstands race team"? LOL
Starting to seem like a downward spiral since my car isnt running and I just keep bying more parts.
My idea was a simple DIY turbo kit and a megasquirt. Figured Id make a few suspension changes while it was down. Now Im thinking its a good time to weld a rollcage in. The power steering hoses need moving or changed to steel braided, might as well put a manual rack in. The longer it sits, the more I want to do.

I am exactly the same way. I popped both head gaskets in mid last year. What could have been a simple head gasket fix, has turned into swapping twins for a big single, intake swap, loose a/c, roll cage, new gauges, and some body work because Im removing the GT side skirts and stuff. So yeah I know what you mean. I am ____ this close to having mine running again. So hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be back on the road. The roll cage and paint stuff is going to wait. I have a few more bars I need to get for the cage and I am ready to enjoy the car, even if its ugly and not painted yet.

I put my car down nearly two years ago with plans on just upgrading the turbo and doing a blow thru MAF conversion. Well that turned into selling the whole turbo kit and going with a complete custom kit, completely new engine, return style fuel system, suspension upgrades, body work, and I'm only halfway through it. Possibly may end up doing a standalone ecu as well. So what I thought was going to take two months turned into two years. I don't really have any complaints though because I know when I get it back together it's going to be a beast and done right. Plus it's sitting nicely in the garage at the same general condition as when I first parked it. What does get on my nerves though is how many people hassle me about getting it done.
