These Spec C TGV Deletes are taken off the assembly line before the machining takes place to install the butterfly valves and the drive motor. Yea, there are some sexy billet TGV deletes from some companies out there for sure. However, there is just something about how the OEM does things when they want to go racing. The parts are just cooler.

These are the last pieces I needed before the car goes to Prime Motoring for a tune next Friday.

Also....I decided on my turbo upgrade thanks to some wonderful people. Its still an IHI turbo and OEM+ as hell. Cant wait!

I am guessing a IHI VF48 high flow?

Without my planned mods for one it is a 10% power increase over the regular oem model and has a slightly quicker spool. Doesn’t require a tune either unless of course the build consists of more than this turbo.

There are few better oem options without going with a twin scroll set up like a VF58 (holy grail oem turbo).

I plan to go with the high flow and swap the cartridge with a ball bearing unit. Maybe upgrade the compressor wheel even further than the one they used for it.
