[QUOTE=Waffle99;35787008]Im looking at slapping a turbo on my 2rz tacoma. The engine's got 150,000 miles and I've heard I should get a reinforced headgasket, struts, and pistons as well as a better fuel injection system. Any help? Also, how much would it cost to get it installed.[/QUOTE] I don't think it's a good idea to install a turbo on a car with that mileage, it will cost you alot of money to install/ replace parts, especially when you won't be doing it yourself.. is it worth it? You'll really need to reinforce it or you'll blow it.

Also, how much would it cost to get it installed.[/QUOTE] A turbo system puts a tremendous strain on your engine. If it has problems already, it will make them worse. Plus the fact that you have to replace almost everything in your engine to even get it to work. Perhaps some custom fabrication as well. You can't just eBay tyte it up, with stuff like turbo kits you have to go the brand-name. Costs upwards from $1000-2000 for a decent starter kit too. That doesn't count other replacements as well. ECU, hoses, exhaust, exhaust manifold, coilover suspension system, etc. Lots of stuff. Research.
i slapped a (different) turbo on my thing and it's fine lol cast internals

They look plastic man. [editline]14th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=bradley;35949860]Too wide, too flush. Ehhhhhhh.[/QUOTE] I wouldn't stretch that wide.
Get some that are a bit thinner and don't stretch at all. Maybe slightly. But yeah. The stretch look on those wheels... THat flush.... ehhhhhhh
personally I hate that kind of rim on any car so I'd say no, but that's my opinion.
Didn't know what thread to post it in so i figured here would be fine. What is the best way to clean and condition leather seats? I want to clean mine when I do detailing for my new car. I'm trying to take care of the seats and interior as best as i can. I used armor all leather wipes thinking they could be ok, but they make everything shiny and I don't think they're good for what I'm looking for.
Never use any Armor All. They destroy dashes and crack everything. A wipe down with water, soap and paper towels does the same thing. You can try steam cleaning it, that should do the trick
At the Mercedes dealership I worked at when I was ~18 we would use MeGuiar's on all of the leather in the Mercedes and Porsches, and even the vinyl in all of the Beetles.
Every single McGuires product has the absolute best smell.
