I also picked up a set of 275/36/15 slicks that clear svt brakes and Lakewood traction bars, and rudels getrag with a torson. When I first started looking at turboing my car I was gonna do it on a stock motor, never planned in it being this extensive. I have a son that is my main priority so ant spare money after child support goes into my car and that's not much. I wanted a intake but ran out of funds on unexpected things such as having $650-$700 in exhaust and I somehow forgot I didn't have a flex pipe and I got raped on shipping. Hopefully its complete in the next month or two. Fernando will be tuning it and that is paid for. On a side note top speed screwed up my head and I need a valve job cause they couldn't get it right after having the head for almost eight months. Five valves aren't completely sealed.

The vct is a pain as stated and with me running aftermarket cams its easier to delete it and not worry about the variable cam timing junking a motor. These cams have .040 more lift that stock.

Italo I was originally going to get a precision 6266 but Fernando said they spool slow on the focus and I didn't want that so I spent a little more and got the gtx. I don't think I will be disappointed.
