    Also, you can take out the turbo timer. It is useless on these cars.

    I highly doubt that was your problem.

    The old filter was SUPER dirty, it was straight brown. And it is idling smooth with no more stuttering.

    Should then also be running a LOT better under load, is it?
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Ah, the filter I see. I thought you meant the resonator was the problem.
