yeh, none of the pics in my gallery seem to be working, but their thumbnail views are, strange, and yes it would be a lot cheaper to just recon your motor and get an aftermarket turbo/supercharger setup.

yeh but a lot more bragging rights out of the BA motor.
if you have a 5 speed allready you could have this in and running for well under 10 grand.

motor with loom,turbo,piping,intercooler ect. $6000
aftermarket ecu $1500
wiring and fittings ect. $250
radiator $250
tuning ect. $500
total $8500 :D

less selling your old motor $500 - $1500 depending on what you have.

what about installation though, that'd have to be a killer. do the engine mounts line up?

yeah, installation into an EL might be difficult?
I heard a while back that AU and BA share the same engine and trans mounts? Is that true???
