Well as far as how it runs it's awesome. Although it pours out oil. I am going to have a special drive shaft made I think. I will be pulling the transmission to replace some seals while I'm at it I'll put in a high stall torque convertor. We are working on a way to change the rear Diff. ratio. I love the car I can't wait to run it in the 1/4 mile and possibly dyno it

I worded that wrongly. I meant it has many small oil leaks. the valve covers leak maybe some front seals. Probably the rear main and the P/S rack leaks. The engine never smokes even on start up with 125K+ miles

Mine has all the same problems and its stock with 90,000 on it. I thought I blew it up last week but I saved it by shuting down as soon as I know something was wrong.
I am very interested in your Turbo install. My Wife will not let me do anything to our 2001 RS so I am still planning on building up the SVX ( when money is around).

Yeah it leaks about the same as it did before the turbo install. I finally got the parts to fix the major leaks.

I'm glad to hear your SVX didn't blow up from lack of oil. The car is loads of fun. Although I am out of money to modify it until I sell My 1988 RX.

So, there are two turbocharged SVX's here in the states. You KevinL and Kastle right? I have been talking to my wife about possibly purchasing Kastles car and have it shipped to Wilmington but we haven't bought a house yet and that's holding me down. ARRRRrrrhhhh!

I want that SVX-T so bad it hurts. Glad to hear they are running ok. I would be scared to run it without a tranny upgrade though. Man, I need to hit the number or something.
