I posted it in SC already, but turbo build anyone? I've been holding off on this for YEARS... finally got the balls to do it.

Since it's a t25 flange on there, you can change it out to a better suited turbo too. Like a gt2860 or gt2871... Make sure to get some sort of charge cooling for it. Even an A2A makes a big difference.

Looks like a fun project.  Any details you want to share with us, incase the itch needs scratching?

By the way - any engine history prior to "slapping a Turbo on it"? did it have a HD clutch before you started?

 

And of course - not to be that guy, but couldn't help but notice the stack of 2X6s (?) in conjunction with proper jack stands - please tell me they are at least screwed together...

The engine is original with around 150K miles. The transmission is/was an SMT to Manual conversion, done by me. The previous owner of the car had GSA problems which is why I picked up the car. In the years he owned the car, Toyota did the normal "Lets throw parts at the car we don't understand", and in the process replaced the clutch before I purchased the car and did the swap.. So it's an OEM clutch with low miles. 

In my advanced(not really. lol) age, I have become cautious when it comes to being under something that could crush me, especially when I'm alone, so I had jack stands, two stacks of 2x6's(yes, they were screwed together), and the jack still in place. I'll also normally place the wheels under the axles when I have them off. I'm just over cautious. Don't want to leave my kids without a father by my own doing.

I'm already considering a turbo swap at some point to a hybrid or ball bearing. That'll come in time. The first thing will be charge cooling in the form of an A2W once I get any/all boost leaks resolved and a base tune while the ambient temps are still down.
