Impressive work bud. I am glad you don't live anywhere near me. When I started stripping my 72 down 9 months ago I wanted exactly what you are doing. Unfortunately I realized my abilities were not worthy of a custom turbo job. Hope your build becomes more than you expected!

That looks nasty! Did you upgrade the suspension? reason I ask is these c3 get a little scary above 110mph, that car is going to be a rocket, the newer vettes can handle those speeds with ease but not our c3s unless you upgrade. Good luck

full roll cage, including tubes going into engine bay, full qa1 front coil overs and qa1 rear shocks, with 500lb com spring, rack pinion steering, so should be all good

Turbos convert the bark into a bIte. You'll still hear it when you mash the pedal.

Nice packaging!
