Just got off the phone with Tom

I'm getting so close to having the car I've always wanted. I broke down yesterday and let Turbo Tom know that I was interested in his Stg 1 kit. He called me back today with details. All I need to do is write him a check and mail it off. I still have some parts I will need to pick up before I install the kit but at least I will have the turbo kit in my grubby little hands. I feel like I'm 12 again.

Don't forget that the FR stg 2 cams will not work with the turbo kit.
Something about overlapping of the cams.? So you will have to
either install the stock cams or get some turbo grind cams.
And lets not forget about the tranny!!! Did he mention
anything about gains? Curious cause I am debating about
getting the full kit, but I hear that the SC is better for
AutoX, which I want to do.

I talked with Tom about the cams. He says the cams will work. The tuner will just have to tune out the overlap with the cam gears. I still have the stock cams but I don't have the buckets anymore. I will definatly be getting a Lentec in the car before the turbo goes on. As far as gains go I'm really hopeing that I make 200/200 at the wheels. I may not becuase it's an auto but I should be within 15 of each which I will be happy with.
