If you own one and you push it at the track or the street and you are making decent stock turbo power and tq you WILL blow up. the pistons in these things are made of glass. Almost all my local freinds with similar setups blew up.

forged pistons should do the trick, and MAYBE a different tuner. if something else goes wrong I will most likely go back to stock and get rid of the car.
