Engine mods:Small front mount cooler V-port BOV 2.5inch exhaust s/steel muffler VL Throttle Home made Boost controller running 10psi Relocated AFM I bought the car in standard form and was in good nick, but the engine was blowing smoke so I got the turbo reconditioned and did not stop the smoke. I then saw the engine was stuffed so it had to be rebuilt  including the head because I blew a big chunk out of it trying to drive it when the timing was fucked. So all the suspension was put in at the same time and when I was driving to get it registered  I got pulled up by the cops and got a pleasant fine of $480! Then after about 6months I relocated the AFM, then bought a small cooler and got polished stainless pipes made up for it with a rapid BOV. Then the exhaust was fitted to achieve a noticeable power difference(especially top end power). I found the Bov to be giving me idle problems so I bought a new turbosmart item for $250 and fixed the problem. Since then I just did a few interior mods and now I`m just waiting for my bro to finish my manifold so I can get this bigger turbo put on, but I have to make sure that my fuel system will be up to snuff so detonation won’t be a problem.
