Thanks for the tip JY. I know very little about
upgrades so it is certainly helpful to get guidance in
the planning stages. I like the idea of a gradual
upgrade as I don't have big bucks to spend
immediately. Where does one typically start if one
could spend a couple thousands dollars to begin with?
A chip comes to mind, but I guess that is the fastest
way to the demise of the existing K03 turbo's!
