New engine! You may remember what happened with the old engine ...

Notice how the cylinder head and the heatshield are more shiney. Engine has 11k miles on it. Compared to the old one with 123k. It does feel like I gained 6 - 10 more horses from the swap.


Thats a picture of it with the turbo that I will be selling soon. (Which was not on the car when the head gasket blew and the head was warped)


Thats the new engine. Yes thats a 70mm maf housing with the stock MAF in there. Running Ray's custom tune for it.

Just giving people a update of what happened. :/

Why do you have a 70mm MAF on a near stock car? You don't have enough air flow for the need for one. Even if it has the stock sensor, the bigger housing won't make a noticable difference.

To pay off the car and get a different one.

I lost my stock maf. When I removed the turbo.
