Wellcomme all of you smile
I own this coupe for 3 years and since that I have been doing a couple of small mods preparing for bigger ones. Car is used like a daily driver and I am also using it for drag racing.

Here is couple of pics of its current look:

GTEC1 chip
PRV
boost gauge
Bailey DV26 BOV
Walbro 255l/h and wiring mod
K&N pannel filter
Drilled airbox
Custom 2,5" exhaust with decat

Also ordered a couple of bits needed to install it. Turbo gaskets,oil restrictor and a V-band adapter. I dont intend to use a V-band as a permanent solution,this is just for help till I get my 3"DP made

Also orederd a Turbo revs FMIC from a forum member

I also bought a GTEC2 so I can use it after installing a new turbo till I get it to live mapping.

Currently I have some doubts how to find a solution about compressor side nipple on my turbo,so any help is wellcomme?

Turborevs FMIC mounted,did a couple of adjustments to pipework and here is the end result,also find out that my S turbo hose had a large cut,so I did replace it with one 90 degre elbow and the leftover of the original hose.
Oil and water temps droped down dramaticly,car spools up pretty good considering that it is a rather large FMIC,at 3000rpm over 1bar boost.

Also fitted HDI boost controller and that thing is amazing!

Last weekend I was at 1/4 mile track and best track time was:

13.4sec with Toyo R888 tyres!

Yes, and this is the time with my Hybrid turbo smile not GT2871R
