Man that sucks, but one thing to keep in mind is that some 20g's turbo are known to be inconsistent with boost creep and overboosting. It varies per turbo/car. An ewg option might not be a bad idea.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

I have read that to be a small problem. Not one that Im honestly concerned about. EWG is out of the question though. Im honestly trying to build the whole car to its potential and keep it as stock looking and sounding as possible. I hate the fact that my Cobb SRI makes noise as it is.

You know you can buy kits where the EWG is circulated into the downpipe as opposed to the loud, obnoxious dump tube? It's a lot quieter.

Its something I can look into I suppose. Its not really in the budget and all with me getting ready to move. I have the deployment coming up at the beginning of the year. After pinching pennies there and hoping getting a nice re-enlistment bonus (if Obama doesnt screw it up) I will have my PPGs, then it will be time for engine research for a full build on it.

You have no idea (well you might actually). But it gives me time to keep saving (Im thinking of putting an aftermarket radiator in with the install now also). Plus Im out in the field for 3 weeks, so Im not sitting out home just twiddling my thumbs

Ok I know I aid my last update, was going to be the last one. But my girlfriend sent me a couple pics of the 20G. Thought I would share with you. When it gets installed I will try and get a comparison pic of the 20G and the TD04.

You know, most people would receive sexual pictures of their wife if they were away on military leave, but you received car upgrades instead (as far as we know). Same effect or better than seein' some skin? !Laugh!

Webcore, honestly its better right now. I have been waiting for this for some time. I have been stage 2 for almost a year. Its time to throw some more power down. I even started discussions with a shop to do my engine and transmission build. So I got some more plans ahead.
