I have some $$$ saved, I just need to keep some funds aside at this stage of my life, but hopefully the car will get treated soon!

good luck with whatever you choose to do next my friend

yeah i'll be looking at the AMS 750 kit as well. if everything works out this summer like i'm planning i will have the car in atlanta for tuning by next fall (forged or topspeed). at the same time i'm considering just saving up right now. i don't have too many financially responsibilities but that could change, you never know. idk, i guess only time will tell.

What do y'all think about going rotated using a GTX3071R with a .82 A/R turbine housing? I know a small housing would help spool but I do want some top end and I felt .82 is a good compromise between the .63 and 1.06.

Hey

When I looked at the pricing it was the same going rotated as stock location and for both you have to take the intake manifold off which was the biggest arse!

I have the 3076 rotated kit. If you want I can take you out in my car when I get back into Houston.

I think that setup is badass if you're concerned about spool which was my initial plan, but since my car won't stay a DD for long I decided to go bigger

anytime down the road you decide you want power, it's just a matter of swapping out the turbo, and fuel injectors if you need more fuel.

I think that is the way to go, and it always feels good when you do it right the first time around!

The biggest problem for me is that I already have the DP and CAI so I guess I will have to sell those. I do think going rotated will be better for me in the end though.

I'll gladly take you up on that offer! unfortunately I will be out for town for the next couple of weekends but maybe sometime after that haha.

a leak somewhere?

I'm no expert, but it sure sound like it, maybe the line to the gauge is faulty?

Update 3/23/2011

Good news! Discovered it was a leak after all. The zip tie i used on the hose connected to the sensor to prevent a leak was actually the cause. Small complaint about the gauge though, it freaks out when i look at it through polarized lenses. Nothing major but annoying considering my favorite pair/driving glasses are polarized. oh well
