i am very interested as well - engine just spun another bearing but i love the car. so i figured i would try the ej20tt set (same situation, wire harness is uncut from ECU to engine ).
I have also read that u can convert it to a isngle turbo - will the ej20tt ecu still work with it just being a single turbo ?

The steering issue isn hard to get around AT ALL i have been telling ppl this for a while now all you have to do is add two universal joints and lengthen the column so it routes thru those joints down the to PS box. Im glad you did this PLZ post pictures and show the world that the EJ20R isn't hot chick with Herpes
