I'm thinking it'd be better to go with a v8 T5 and get rid of the 4cyl 200k mile T5. Gotta be easy on it until I gather parts. FWIW, 1st and 2nd the tires spin and 3rd has them biting at the pavement ...

Time for some 4 banger house power!

I agree with all that was said about the pimp. Among others, it has an autotune feature with Tunerstudio that is self learning(if you want to call it that) and takes out most of the guess work for you...

Welcome to TF. Looks like a nice project even with the surface rust. My TC was that color originally(now black). Twilight blue metallic I think? Pretty color.

Anyone have experience with these two clutches? How are they for street driving? Planning to use the stock flywheel. My new stage 3 is slipping, so I'm looking at either of these two. The stage 5 is r...

Congrats on the win and the deal with McLeod. Gotta be real cool to get in with the manufacturers. Maybe it'll lead to a sponsorship.

Back in action with a new turbo. Went with another Turbonetics since the first one was trouble free and lasted so long. Haven't pushed it hard yet since finding the turbo drain line is cracked and lea...

Got the turbo apart and found it needs more than just a simple rebuild kit. Exhaust side turbine play is quite a bit and the cold side is almost as bad. Found the compressor housing backing plate hole...

Turned it up just 2 psi and it felt great! IATs were in the 90s and AFRs were in the 11s. Unfortunately, this spelled the end for the oil seals. It's now smoking out of the tailpipes. Verified it is t...

I have a Turbonetics T04B .63 from 2008 and have been running it at 25psi since new. Been a great turbo...no problems. Lost the ID card long ago, but I remember it having a T3 hot/T4 cold side. It's b...

Yep, back on the road! Just finished up the new stainless downpipe yesterday and finally got rid of the wastegate dump(which sounded like crap). Now, it's plumbed into the exhaust stream. Half way thr...

Funny part is that the car was free(given to me by John Moller back in '05). It wasn't a money pit at first...what happened? :huh:  Oh yeah, I started modding it. It's become more and more of a money ...

Almost! Will be back on the road after getting it tagged/insured. Just drove it around the neighborhood but is real nice to have the 5spd again. Also need to figure out what to do about the downpipe/i...
