A DIRECT INJECTED ENGINE IS NOT NEW TECHNOLOGY. I ASK THE QUESTION THAT HOW CAN A DIESEL HAVE A TURBO WITH VERY HIGH COMPRESSION. ANSWER: DIFFERENT HEAD DESIGN, HEAD STUDS, BETER GASKETS, TUNING, TUNING, TUNING. A TURBO ON OUR CARS IS NOT A BAD IDEA IF YOU HAVE THE $$$ TO PUT INTO IT. MYSELF, I WANT A N/A CAR THAT HAS MORE THAN THE ST.

Back on topic now. I have done KSport coilovers, TSW 18X8 et40 wheels, removed the airbox top with OEM filter, removed the rear muffler and had a straight pipe installed in its place, OBX header, and SOLID (NO BUSHINGS AT ALL) engine torque mount. In that order.

I plan to put the factory mount back on today. The solid one was just to see "what if". I do not recommend it unless the car is tracked only and you plan to have a rattle trap car in a few years.
