    On the 2.5L, it's mismatched. With an EWG, the top-end choke can be negated, but until then,

    Would it be better for my engine then say a 20G?

    Thanks bro.

    Aside from the fuel and exhaust mods, what else would you suggest? Forged internals yay or nay and if so what brand?
    Which clutch and how much power/psi should I shoot for?

    Full exhaust (PnP'd exhaust manifold or headers, EWG, TBE, and possibly TGV-deletes)
    Full intake tract (intake, post-MAF hose, turbo inlet)
    Quality intercooler (TurboXS, APS, Spearco, Perrin, Hyperflow, Process West)
    Quality gauges (Defi, Greddy, Omori)
    Fuel (injectors / fuel pump)

    If the motor is working, don't fix it. 20G doesn't guarantee a blown motor.

    Clutch - keep OEM until it goes. After that, they have torque ratings for a reason, use them. While you're there, you may consider a lightweight flywheel.

    As for #s, call the shop tuning the vehicle and ask them what a 2.5L 20G setup normally makes, as they will give you the best idea since they know their dyno / tuning best. As for PSI, no one can answer that. You can bring your car to two tuners, and have two different tunes. Some prefer lower boost / higher timing, some prefer higher boost / less timing.


    That's not taking into consideration upgrades that should be done to the driveline, suspension, and brakes. Your vehicle is a system, and should be upgraded all-around, not focused in a single aspect (especially if that aspect is power).
