i also have picked up a gt3071r turbo kit by berk. the kit was made for an mr2 so there will need to be some mods made to the wastegate adapter, downpipe and screamer pipe. luckily Chris from KO racing is nice enough to offer to rework the kit for me. here are some pictures of the kit as it is right now. Still waiting on some $$$ so i can send it to KO racing to be modified.

It took over a year and i don't think they ever fixed that slightly misaligned fan mount hole.
Remember, it was a two-man job, so much credit goes to you as well.
Those 165/162 aluminum radiators are all over Ebay now.
Funny to think that we were the ones responsible for all that - it's a good feeling :D

lol.. whats up rick?!?! yeah, i don't think they ever bothered with that fan mount.. didn't matter to me tho cause i went with an aftermarket slim fan so whatevers.. Eh.. no worries on my end. it was well worth it to finally get something made for the 165 community. yeah, i see those radiators all over ebay now.. lol.. nice to know we had a hand in that..
Anyways, hope all's good with you and your trac!! :D

Everything's cool with the 'Trac, roadable, just the usual maintenance stuff: leaking rear quarter window seals and now PS pump is squealing intermittently. Probably get her back on the road withing the month :)
