    a 16g is a great match for the 2.0 cars like yours. they have a lot of potential and are a definite upgrade!

    -> on a side note....make sure you get some em before doing anything like that. enjoy!

    Be aware that you will also need larger injectors, larger intercooler, a catless UP, & TBE to go along with the aforementioned turbo & EM. That all goes w/o saying that you'll need to take it easy on your tranny.

    16g is good i have one......it has a lot of power, spools up in the high rpms.........you need a lot of work done first before you get it though........also as mentioned below me, you need to watch out for your tranny......as a first mod you should go with a turbo back exhaust and some Engine Management.....don't change your turbo without the supporting mods or you will damage something
