Thanks to everyone for the kind words!!

A few more stuff going on this week:

Who did all the work for you here in CT?


Thanks MrPoop, Jaylan did exhaust and Wayne did initial bolt-ons together with Ruan other than that all work gets done by Ruan @ Stealth Tuned and Ryan Pereira Motors. They both always do an excellent job and really go the extra mile

Also starting to think I should have gone with the White instead. Blue is driving me mad on dust.
Keep up the good work


Thanks Hero, my previous car was blue hence I decided on white but love that blue color was between the two

Puts the power down quite well except 1st obviously cannot really got WOT as its quite a short gear and top of 2nd it struggles a bit but fitting a tie/traction bar now (thanks to Cornel) in front along with some Powerflex bushing that is hopefully going to help me sort that out so I can put it all down in 2nd :)

It's a pleasure man.

Let me know if that tie bar does help with traction issues.

Thank you!

So all parts were fitted and been enjoying them:

Made a very very nice difference! Brakes are epic and a lot more progressive than I expected, coolant tank looks awesome and together with the new coolant lines and Mishimoto Thermostat my car has never run cooler.

The GFB DV+ definitely made a difference with response and boost recovery as well so would recommend.

The biggest surprise however were the Powerflex bushings, these completely transformed the handeling and ride of the car like you wouldn't believe! IMO a must mod!

Nice JP!
Your car is doing really well!

Any plans on setting a 1/4 mile time now that the supporting mods are there?

Yes. It sits in a very crap place. I tried just jacking the car up to get it done and didn't work.

Borrow a lift and was a lot better
