Well there are many ups and downs to this... first drive.. brakes needed bled more drove slow to drop my cousin off at school.. came back home, fixed brakes and what not, went back to get him.. lemme tell you.. motor is 100% stock.. just with open downpipe.. thats where i get into trouble, i had a "fake" exhaust muffler hung from the end of the car.. but nothing attached, car pulls like a bat outta hell, the feeling is completely overwhelming, it just screams, and mind you i wasnt even going WOT about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle, staying around the speed limit, just accelling up to it.. rpms never went over 5 grand, shifts never hard, and omg.. its soo loud, the turbo absolutely screams, the BOV even stock! sounds amazing.. now for the bad.. i live in a town full of rich old people.. drove down one street to get to my work to take my fellow friend and worker for a ride, drive down a back street outta it, staying under 35 mph.. never scretching tires or anything.. yea pretty sure, 5 minutes later, my mom calls me telling me the cops are at our door and they are looking for me they had a complaint of reckless op.. i couldnt believe it.. long story short, dads pissed takes keys.. im pissed and upset with myself for driving it with an open downpipe.. so word of wisdom.. dont do this.. what a night ruiner.. but i tell you, what a hell of a motor, one word.. it screams!

i know this isnt tech question.. just thought it would relate more to the these people than any since most own one.. or are building one, i want to thank everyone that helped me get it running, and also this forum as a whole, for all the reading ive done basically guided me through my swap. thanks guys.

wow.. makes me think of my first test drive ... everything bolted down lol all stock, with 240sx exhaust bolted up... putted it slow to gas station and filled with 91 .. car kept cutting out and gradually like gaining speed and sputtering.. after about 30 minutes of driving around cruising the streets and a few freeway runs it all cleared up .. when i had pressure washed the clip and cleaned motor before the swap that i did in 3 days, water had like settled under the coilpack cover.. once all that moisture and water steemed away .. it was full throtle pulling... it was great i must admit.. i opened up ehxaust and put a fmic with 13 psi boost and it sounds like a fricken jet or a street bike. i bolted exhaust back up after dyno .. but my plans are 3 inch turbo outlet 3 inch downpipe and 3 inch electric cutout that bolts to stock exhaust .. so im quite when i want to be and loud when needed.

Im so excited about my swap! even though its moving along very slowly lol. Money isnt a problem just that I cant do shit all by myself and with school from 7am - 1pm and work from 2pm - 10pm isnt easy for 5 days a week.

Keep them rbs coming!
