    I just found this through yellowpages...
    http://www.superpages.com/yellowpage...tington+Beach/

    You might have to just call down the line & see who wants to provide a one-sy drilling job.
    Hey thanks a lot Anson! I appreciate it bud! Ill have to for sure give them a call and see if its possible...i just am still waiting for that part...i think ill call the dealership and see what is up with it. If not i have my original but i cant take it out and have them drill it because then id have to put it back in and then until i install my stuff i could have some serious boost problems

    It's not as dangerous to have a less restrictive pill vs more restrictive pill. I found out the hard way. During turbo swap, I didn't realize I threw out my line w/ the pill. So driving around with no pill resulted in super lag, low boost.

    The pill was replaced, but too small & too restrictive. Then the wagon was OVERBOOSTING.

    You should be okay for a few days with a drilled out pill.

    just outta curiosity, is it better to remove the uppipe by removing the turbo or going from the bottom?

    How hard is it to remove the turbo anyway?

    From what I remember, Paul was attacking you uppipe from underneath. Since he's pretty experienced, I would assume that was easier than removing the turbo

    I've never done an uppipe before so I can't say which is easier. Removing the turbo is easy, putting it back could get frustrating because of the tight fits & possible oil leakage if not sealed correctly (compression washers).

    got ya..well thats cool...i actually just called the dealership and it came in today so i just need to go and get that drilled a little bigger and then wait for my intercooler to come in the mail...i hope that transaction goes smoothly and that it works fine....im nervous buying a $250 top mount intercooler off ebay , i sure hope it performs well enough, but from what i have read plenty of people have got intercoolers off ebay and like them a lot. I guess the intercooler isnt something thats easy to screw up as long as the welds are decent? thoughts?

    cool deal, thanks man...i think ill ask that HB shop first because they are more local but if they are unable to, Ill definitely take it over to Harman motive. Do you have a 16g turbo? how is the difference from stock? im really stoked to see how fast it is after its all put in!
