    welcome to the club. congrats on the purchase!

    the "simple" mods you want are not needed/will hurt your vehicle.

    read some of the stickies around the site before you do any modding!

    NOTE: If you run a turbocharger beyond its compressor efficiency range, it will turn into a flame thrower.
