    I would agree. Stock intakes are plenty flowing enough for any VF Turbos...but when stepping up, more flow to an 8cm housing is probably a worthwhile investment, especially when you can get tuned. SPT or APS or something of that nature...a short-ram would be good enough for you.

    As for BOV...my stock BPV was running fine and I was boosting upwards of 23-24psi in the cold weather during WOT pulls. I was tuned to 21psi and it held out fine. If you are planning on upping the boost any further than you have, looking for a better recirc BOV would probably be a benefit for you. Most people will say that the stocker is good til about 20psi.


    btw...LOL at Justin...damn good observations.

    Thanks for the input. Now it's time to hunt for a short ram intake (i've been undecided until now).

    Soo...I picked up a Perrin big MAF. Would I be over doing it with my 18g? I got it for a really good deal. My thinking was...if I decide to go bigger with my turbo...the Big MAF will work plenty.

    A stock sized intake will work perfectly fine with an 18G. Don't use the filter though. K&N sells one that will fit. If you do use it, I'll look up the part number.

    If you're not using a FMIC, I would have recommended a CAI or a SRI that would have worked with a heatshield.

    any negative effects of using the Big MAF with my setup? the only issue i can find is that it's hard to tune for. I was pretty sure that I'd have to re-scale my MAF, but would AFR be affected at all?
