Well...just talked to the salvage yard guy and he might have a Torsen Unit coming in tomorrow!

Also, a friend of mine has a laptop she said she would sell me for cheap so I can do some tuning...when the MS comes in.

You'll make some nice power. I put down 190whp @ 15psi on stock exhaust with what will be the same setup as your almost. Just watch the timing :-0 Thats what blew mine.

I advanced too far. I think you should put down like 230ish with exhaust. Beyond that and you are out of the efficiency range of the turbo. That power level is fun though

Mine spooled low because of the restrictive exhaust, The dyno plot is in my vbgarage.

That is the one, its a good 4ish feet long. The motor in my car was a jdm replacement so it didnt have the standard feed spot tapped. I had to run a line to a T at the oil pressure sensor. I'm not up for selling the T though, it was ghetto rigged :P You can buy a T that is proper though for like $20 from some site, I have the link somewhere.
