    Yep, Mikie you're right on. Although both my tuner and Blouch believe that the 18G in my car is capable of approx. 330-340whp (it flows 39 lbs/min as opposed to the TD06 18G that flows 40 lbs/min). In fact, the PO of the turbo was making 320 whp on the very same turbo. I just need to track down my problem.

    After I fix the car, my next performance upgrade will likely be this:

    Nah, I'm kind to my transmission. Besides, it's torque that kills transmissions not horsepower. And frankly put, the 2.0L puts out no torque . I do also have the -BA uprated transmission, not that it makes too much of a difference.

    Nice. I'm trying to be kind to my transmission but I reeeeally wanna try out the launch control. However that's a $6000 bet I'm not willing to make

    I guess this thread deserves an update...

    Ordered an AEM UEGO yesterday. I'll be getting a bung put into my downpipe when I get a chance and will also likely be putting a bung for the EGT sensor into my header. Proper road tuning is where it's at...
