    They have become like rocking horse poo! And as such when they are found the prices are rather high. Good luck!

    Viamoto is a great online shop for parts. I'd echo all the advice above really. Without upgrading the turbos you can make the car substantially faster. If you want headline power numbers then custom pipework for turbo swap is the only way. The tubs are small, so restrictive at high revs where the power numbers are made. Having said that they can blow harder lower down the rev range, so the torque figure and area under the curve can be seriously improved. Using a G-meter for...

    It can happen if you lift off and brake hard coming to a stop in auto too. Some people have a lot of problems and some don't - hence I suspect it is a combination of quality of the valve, other boost leaks on the car, the tune on the ecu, the driver themselves etc... My car is relatively subtle to look at even though it is well modified. The exhaust tip and the dump valve are my two "immature" modifications!

    I have a whoosh noise! The valve dumping to atmosphere will mean you have a brief period of running rich, as the car will be fuelling for the air it has measured in through the maf, but has exited unmeasured through the BOV. How much that affects you depends on the BOV, the driving style, the tune on your car etc. The only time I notice is if I accelerate hard, then dump the clutch and keep it dumped. The engine stalls then, I'm sure because there is way too much fuel for the air and...

    I'd check the plugs. In doing that you'll also check the leads and coil packs. It could also be a vacuum leak - have you got a boost gauge?

    Evo valves fit. I use an atmospheric BOV, an HKS SSQV. This can lead to the car stalling in some circumstances which is for the reasons Tim mentioned above.

    I looked into this recently with Wouter but I can't remember what we decided. I seem to remember tube and fin is better for most applications? Lighter, so easier to recover from heat soak etc. I'd be tempted to see if I could fit one below the crash bar, but I'm not sure if your option 3 would do that?

    It's actually no worse than the VR4. And cruising at slightly illegal speeds on the motorway it's noticeably better. I assume it is because it is not as much heavier as you'd expect, but has a better drag coefficient, better gearing and a third of the diffs.
