Hey guys, Just figured i'd give the community an update. The last few months have been very busy getting the car tuned and everything ironed out.

Mikey @ Phatbotti Tuning TKR stuck with me though the whole process and was able to help me achieve my goals and more!

After all was said and done it yielded i thought some pretty amazing results for a 2.0L on E85

Impressive for sure, now just be careful not to shred that 5spd. Do you have plans to upgrade any of the drivetrain?

I wondered the same thing when i bought the car. The previous owner when getting the vf39 installed took it to a company who's name i will not mention.

They felt it necissary that when upgrading the turbo to "rebuild" the motor. The removed it to put in new OEM rod bearings, piston rings, and head gaskets. on a car that only had 40k on it. They used the upgraded bolts when putting it back together.

In the end i had to remove the turbo, intake, headers etc for all the porting it did. Doesn't make sense to me why they would feel it necessary esp for a low mileage car and only upgrading to a vf39

Honestly i dunno. I haven't really seen a need to upgrade them yet. I have done alot of other supporting mods for the brakes. Master cylinder brace, stainless braided lines, upgraded pads and rotors, etc.

IDC's were right at about 85% towards the top. The 850's turned out to be perfect for this setup

Is Big Break Kit better than a Big Brake Kit?

One of my favorite cars on this site- simple, clean, and respectable power in a package that doesn't scream "look at me"

Yeah, something doesnt add up there. That motor must have been toasted. But, at least you got fresh bearings out of the deal.
