    Im in SE portland. tualitin is really close though.Thats where my tuners shop is. We should meet up soon. And Phobic: Give it time, You can find alot of deals on hood scoops. I have the 02 JDM sti hood scoop that i see on alot of other bugeyes. Nice thing is these cars ( for being performance sport cars) last quite awhile as long as you take care of them. Just start small, set a goal, and do whatev you need to do to make it how you want it.

    Consider running a Hybrid boost control instead of JUST an MBC.

    So you retain the ability to cut boost in situations the ECU needs to. So you have compensations for things like temp. So you can fix PTFB by ramping up WGDC based on throttle angle. All this while maintaining the MBC as the boost control at WOT. All positives, with the only negative being slightly more cost (GM solenoid is like $30).

    Check out this post for a great overview of hybrid boost control. EJ257 contributed to that article as well.

    When do you want that heat shield, BTW? If you're ever in the Tualatin/Tigard area in the middle of the day, I could meet you over my lunchbreak or something.

    I wouldn't say the VF39 is any more reliable than any other quality made turbo. The only thing it really has going for it is you can get them used dirt cheap. If you're buying new there are better options out there.
