Intercooler, exhaust, and ECU tune. Google JZWtuning, he'll be able to help you. Don't waste your money on an intake.

I'd agree. Keep it cool right now. My first car was a 1986 Cavalier (still have it!) and I almost got myself killed in it several times.

210hp is a lot of power for a first car. Maybe look into some handling upgrades first. Or even some driving events to teach you to better manipulate the power you have.

Yes, but it wont make you go any faster, just sound silly.

Unhook your BPV from the intake side of the turbo, and there you go, BOV.

Clearly, though, you haven't mastered the English language.

My thoughts exactly.

Where you located at? I am guessing the midwest if you have been driving since 12. (I was killing a 1980 subaru at age 11, good fun)

Also, pics of your ride?

I just saw your post in the Forge BOV thread.


I'll say again to you. READ READ READ. The answers are out there, JUST READ DAMNIT.

If you dont fully understand how the turbocharger works, thats also something to read about. www.howstuffworks.com.
