Bad *** car!! I bet that thing is fun!

I would get a piggyback fuel computer..maybe a apexI AFC...Then maybe a electronic boost controller...



That way you could run a bit more boost and better tune your A/F ratio for it.. (IMO) It might be the biggest bang for your buck.



After the extra fuel and air going into the engine a injector upgrade will be in order. I think if your pushing the stock turbo to 14 PSI your stock 550cc injectors will be close to 85% duty cycle.



Yeah a front mount would be nice to. you you could get one off ebay for like $150.

Get an ECU.

Microtech or Haltech.

Dont buy any piggy back junk.

If you want a plug in get the haltech.
