    Welcome

    Very nice looking stock bugeye!

    One thing you'll want to make sure of is that the timing belt/water pump has been done. That is due in general maintenance at 105K miles.

    Also, we always like to point new bugeye owners toward the importance of the catless up pipe mod.

    Thanks, the previous owner replaced the timing belt and water pump a year ago. I have been looking into the uppipe mod, just need to decide which one to buy.

    I have been looking for part vendors and have been able to find TurboXS and RallySportDirect. Is there a list of reputable dealers somewhere?

    Welcome! I'd recommend a ceramic coated catless up pipe such as Grimspeed.

    Well just did the silencer delete mod today before it started raining. Once I get some extra cash and a free weekend i'm going to put in an uppipe. I really like the grimmspeed uppipe with the flex joint and i will probably get that.
