well even if you got a tune right after you got everything said and done you still need to run datalogs to make sur eeverything is perfect and even then you will get more tunes sent to you with adjustments to make everything right for your ride

You can reach the 2- 8mm bolts with the intake mani on.

It is a PITA but you get to it the same way as you are working/replacing the starter... you can't see it very well... you have to do most of it by feel...

Hell if you bought the car for cheap and couldn't verify the tune or parts correctly the $600 with free updates and SCT device sounds like cheap insurance instead of replacing the engine. I wouldn't have even touched the boost without knowing it was tuned right.....but that's just me.

As for videos...I use youtube. Upload the video and then post the direct link in your post with the special Youtube tags in the "advanced" reply composer (click "go advanced" under the quick reply section at the bottom)
do you guys know what turbo came with this kit i need to know so i can buy a rebuild kit its a turbonetics but im not sure if its a t3/t4,thanks guys
