Deadbolt's online most of the day. Just email him and he usually gets back to you in an hour- Great service-but it means he is taking time out of the shop to respond. I'll have my vf39 back in a few days and will give you a full write up and more pics.

lobelsteve is a more patient man than I. Just can't bring myself to take my car out of service long enough to get the turbo to deadbolt. My new excuse is to wait for lobelsteve's report on his. unfortunately, if he says it's awesome, I'll have no more excuses.

I didn't take my car out. I currenly am running the ultra popular STI TD04 swap. Spool is great. Direct bolt-on. No CEL. Better mileage. Same low end, much less mid and high end- but I'm not pushing it past 6/10's as this is just so I can get to work. Should have my PNP back from deadbolt early next week. I'll keep posting.

BTW- If someone made an oil return eliminator kit (just a longer hose or AN fittings or quick connects- I'd buy one just so I never would have to fumble with those horrible pinch style hose clamps again.

I think I'm going to Mid-atlantic, they are only 75.00 with the P&P. their tech has been poritng for 2 years, but just joined their company a few months ago. If I have good results, it is well worth it, if not, not too much lost.

newbie question: What's a PnP on the wastegate going to do for you?

it is a safety thing, usually with a turbo back exhaust, you gett a boost spike, the pnp helps prevent this. they also claim a few hp gain with this.

go to deadbolt.com they are the best.
