wussup i just recently hit 1k miles on my car, finally broke the bitch in, so now im wondering, can I start modifying right away like with a full turbo exhaust, gt spec header, blitz sus intake, hks blowoff value, and probably a staticx ground kit also, probably all at the same time. So should i start right away or should I wait a little longer for the engine. Any help would be great!

If you're porting the wastegate now, go ahead with the rest and add the UTEC or other ECU upgrade later.

I'd blow the blow-off valve and get a boost controller instead. Also make sure you do something to the intake, either air-box hack or Short Ram.

its ok to run boost controller on stock intake correct? im getting ready to use turboxs single stage manual boost controller and up the boost the 15.5 psi. i have heard stock intake is good up to 500hp? first mods are going to be boost controller and hks carbon-ti exhaust. sticking with the stock bov for a while.
