    Welcome!

    You can return the turbo timer, these cars don't need them.

    The boost controller is only good if you are going to have someone professionally tune the car.

    See the link in my sig for a good place to get started on learning how to mod these cars correctly.

    How many miles are on the car? Two things, if it is 100k or more, you need to find out if the timing belt service was done, if not, do it. Also, one of the first things you should do is replace the stock uppipe with an aftermarket one without a catalytic converter.
