Default Hello, I am new to this forum!

Hello, I am a member on GMT nation and I am just expanding to get new ideas and to enjoy the work of other enthusiasts. Looking forward to being a part of this site. Thanks!

A little bit about my vehicle...
Since last September I decided I would be the first (that I know of) to turbo charge my 2004 GMC envoy 4200 4.2 i6. I based my layout off of the Toyota Supra 2jz inline 6 and learned a great amount of things while doing this build. I finally got it up and running Saturday.
