Alright i've been reading on here some and im just gonna post this and let you guys post what you think would be the best route to take from where im at now to get some noticeable power increase. I currently have a buschur intake, hks ssq bov, mxp turbo back exhaust with secondary cat removed (test pipe), buschur mbc (took it off). I've been holding out on a tune because of a couple reasons, mainly because this ecu is still under research with different turbo setups and injectors with different combinations of sizes to choose, and also because im really wanting to get an intercooler kit.....so basically what im asking is for some of you to just give me your opinions on what i should try to buy first....i know i prolly shouldn't have gotten the turbo back exhaust and not have a tune, but my money tree is sorta small but is growing as the warmer weather approaches lol. also if i was to want a bigger turbo, what size is adequate to get to keep stock internals? i'd b willing to get that junk clutch out of there anyway so that is another thing im looking to buy. im looking for about 300hp or close to it (prolly wont get too close to that to the wheels)

380whp with the LoveFab kit, you're about halfway there.
That's using a GT3071r, so if you went with a bit smaller turbo you'd get faster spool time and still hit your 300whp goal; plus less clutch wear, mine is just barely starting to slip after 18,000 hard miles using this kit.

Stock internals BTW.

I will be running the Modern Automotive Performance TD05-16G that is a direct bolt-on to our OEM exhaust manifold which is good for about 350whp on my stock internals. MAP is offering a discount for testers at this time & this will be the least expensive option to get well over 300rwhp. It produces more power than the 19t upgrade, yet mounts up to the OEM EM saving $$ necessary for a tubular header needed for the EVO turbo upgrade option.

sounds like a good idea there, but if im gonna do a turbo swap, im gonna wait to get a new intercooler first and get rid of that junk stock piping. i was pretty set on getting a tune of some kind but idk what to get now, there's more choices now than there was when i first got my car, so im kinda undecided right now on which route to take. i definitely would like to get a new turbo, but i want to do it right, not piece it together and take chances of leaning out the engine or getting super hot air going into the engine and out, so i probably would b needing to get the intercooler, turbo, injectors, and a tune all at once, to get it to b a safer daily driver.

Tufast, what's the spool time on that turbo, any ideas?
Sounds interesting and that's my biggest complaint about my current setup, takes too damn long to hit.

IDK..... but as soon as she's installed, I will let you know. If I had to guess, I would say around 2900-3000 rpms.
