Goals are just to be a nice drivers car that's decently quick. Not looking to set records just want longer engine life and some passing power.
The turbo has .45AR marked on it, t too small.
Rules I fallow religiously:
Winter - shut off fuel pump, crank car twice (3 sec shot) then turn on fuel pump
Never get into heavy boost until operating temp
Always heavy oil and a mitsubishi oil filter
Always no clutch to start
