    Yeah it fit my budget at the time so I went with it.
    It was a great learning experience tearing the old one down and seeing how everything works.
    I did alot of research on a few other options I could have saved for but I stayed with this.
    All in all im just glad to have my suby running again.

    Good luck with your logs hope everything works out for ya man.

    Yeah it was a low mileage JDM complete.
    It was in great condition and while removing intake manifold and such I inspected the internals from what I could see and looked good there as well.
    The turbo has a slight bit of shaft play but was in better condition than my old turbo.
    I didnt get to do any logs on it yet with AP because I need to get it legal first.

    Thanks man. I dont see the big deal or hype over the 22B. Dont get me wrong i love the thing to death and it looks great but some of the prices people want for them is insane

    Thanks man, I appreciate your thoughts. I'm exploring all the options at the moment, but it's nice that there's so much enthusiast experience with this auto and there's been time to refine the go-fast gear for it.

    I'll let you know if I pick something up,

    Ciao.

    Ive got the autometer. Personally I dont like it that well. Looks good and eeverything but, you gotta cut and drill your factory pillar. If I had it to do again I would get a clock pod.
