Looking at getting the car, dont own it...yet The turbo hits max boost literally right away so the power is there right from the start, does die off at the top a little but a few mods could help that out.

It is a real every day driver, doesnt bite your *** at unexpected moments and has the internals already so it is ready to be boosted if I change my mind in the future. Setup has never had a problem in 6 or so years that it has been on so it all looks good to me besides a few changes that I want to make.

I was trying to make sense of it all from what I had been told by the guy who is selling it. I think he was trying to say that the piggyback unit has full control of all the fueling (taken as standalone in his head)

Dont know everything about it so I was basically quoting him, will correct it as I think he means piggyback thanks

You will want a megasquirt or a guy who can tune that for when you put a bigger exhaust and turbo on it in 6 months.
