Here are some pictures









Very impressive turbo upgrade.

What did you do to the engine internals?

Any upgraded rods or any additional deck bracing?

Wow what an awesome build, may I ask you roughly how much it cost so far or how much it cost total for the conversion? This is not a cheap conversion by any means and rarely people will spend the time and money doing what you do, GL and keep us posted as we all would love to see the final results.

Hp goal is mid to high 400s.

Still haven't decided on tires.

Rod are forged. Using version 1 pistons. No deck bracing.
I would go with some wide tires to maintain traction with your set-up.

Maybe 275/35-18 or 255/40-18 tires on some wide light weight wheels.

This car made 430whp(500HP). There's many other Optimas making 300-530whp all tuned by LAP3. You will have to join LAP3 facebook page to meet them and follow their builds. https://www.facebook.com/groups/lap3usa/
