I guess I can provide an update here. The car is being used for all things rowdy. It needs a diff but will still get airborne. The wildlife seems to like it as well. Owls especially.

The 30x9.5's are on in the rear. I should have a couple more for the front sometime soon. The rake is gone with them so I'm excited to see what it will be like with four. They clear the inner fender well and don't seem to rub too bad other than the lower quarter panel by the door. The cheap route is a hammer, or someday I'll get some traction rods made and a panhard bar to fix all the angles. The gearing will be awful for off road but it's fine as it is. I want to build some coilovers but at the same time I want a trailer and a dirt bike to do sick whips bruh.

it needs one but it's not top priority. what must one do to turbo the vehicle? I'm not really worried about manifold, turbo, exhaust, intercooler and piping, injectors and mechanical stuff but more so the engine management and electrical stuff. i haven't the foggiest with that crap.

The easy route on engine management would be to just plug stock Turbo computers in.

Here it is with the 30's. I've gotta get the other two soon. They fit without spacers surprisingly.

I started a new job and put some BFG AT's on it. 235/75/15. I'm thinking about a v8 swap in it some day soon. It's got no power.

You should +T it then make a decision. My car was decently quick with the 4.10's and +t on stock computers. Just blow through the maf, tap the oil pan for the return, and rock it for a bit to see what you think. I've been smashing on mine all summer and it hasnt skipped a beat.

I found this http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=195467 so I think I'll start saving up and collecting parts. It looks stupid easy and I bet I can do it real cheap too.

It looks super easy. Dan, does your speedo work with the g80 and what did you get it out of? Turbo and a locker would make it much more serious.

Yep, my speedo works, I had to cut teeth out of the tone ring to bring it from 48 to 12 teeth, I used the cast aluminum cover and pickup/sensor from a 940 turbo. G80's came in 7/9 series turbo cars, I'm not sure which specific years/options, some even had 4.10's

Lifting an underpowered 2WD wagon and putting it on all terrain tires? WHY?? Who in their right mind would.....

Oh. That's right.

Just picked these up:





30x9.50 15's on Jeep Canyon 15x8's. Price $124 One tire needs to be replaced as it has a small hole in the sidewall but it was a smoking deal anyway!

Thanks for the call yesterday about this, I appreciate the tips on this build! (I'm still going to blame you for all of this though....)
