I have added a front mount intercooler, modded the piping to make it sit perfect and connect correctly, got bigger green injectors, a td04 aero turbo, a 3in downpipe, high flow cat, an 3in catback. I am contemplating doing the 19T upgrade to the turbo before I take off the stock linear turbo and put this one on. But I have been told for the larger turbo I will lose a bit of spool up which I can handle but how much. I was looking for around 280 or so at the wheels so would the stock td04 do it??? I am just not wanting to go through a brand new motor which I just installed when I aquired the car due to the previous owner throwing a rod due to no oil. I may do forged pistons and rods later. But for now I use this daily and since I build engines for a living I can do the motor but I think I want to hold off for now. I was told 300 is the max you want to put on the stock pistons so please tell me what some of your thoughts are. Once all is done I am driving it too JZW to have a custom tune done to it.
