    Yeah I would do a compression test before you start your mods to get an idea how healthy the motor is.

    To start off with it already has a Turboxs BOV, a DC blitz Turbo Timer, Optima red top, and a system.

    So after getting the general maintenance out of the way.

    I wanted to do at least a boost gauge because I like to monitor what I have going on, debating on what other gauges to go with maybe A/f.

    Also contemplating a set of K-sport Coilovers and a set of wheels to be determined.

    Sti Hood scoop, cold air, up and down pipe w full exhaust, and a snowboard rack prolly yakima.

    Window tint, pull the little dents it has and repaint. Slight brake upgrade prolly some slot and drilled rotors and EBC red stuff pads.

    Still working on the list. OHH and throw a tune in there some where with the cobb accessport

    You might want to think twice before doing a BOV its nothing but a noise maker that's a lot of peoples first mods which is not necessary. "The BIG BOV thread" (Where all bov question threads get merged) Same thing with a turbo timer they are not needed either Turbo Timer FAQ: Read if you are thinking of buying one! - NASIOC I would save yourself the time and money and just focus on the dp and up pipe. That way you can have a protune instead of using a cobb map. The first mod you should focus on is replacing the up pipe if it hasn't already been replaced.

    Sed things were mentioned because they came on the car my friend.

    You misread maybe?

    Why is the down and up pipe better than Cobb? If you don't mind my asking

    What I meant was getting a protune would be better than using a cobb AP maps. You'll get more out of a custom tune than using the maps cobb offers. When you do anything that changes the airflow of the car a tune is recommended. So that includes downpipe, intake, up pipe, headers etc...

    welcome! congrats on the bugeye! frenzied is on the right track with taking off the bov and turbo timer, go with the uppipe first. Accessports work fine but if you want the most you can get out of it go witha protune.

    I'll get on that up pipe this week. Can't wait to see some gains in this car!

    Question: why should I remove the bov and turbo timer. From what I hear a timer is good for the turbo to wind down before stopping the motor? I done where the bov is a waste though
