now what i have done: 18t turbo, white injectors, RICA tuned ECU, 3" DP, 2.5" cat back (no cat), EST intake, turbosmart BOV, 6k 50w HID's, EST strut bar, CF spark plug cover and trunk insert, inovate wideband, stewart warner boost and water temp gauge, apexi turbo timer, pioneer double din HU (not installed yet), apexi AVC-R ECU (not installed yet), and thats about it i plan or doing a full rebuild on it when i get out to san diego for my permanent duty staion and am looking for 500whp and then also getting it repainted to make it look alot better than it does now (dont worry its going to stay the same color). and my last dyno that i just did i put down 260whp and 280ft, any questions or coments feel free.

thanks

MMMM yellows! I love t-gul T5R's. Stop being a douche and put a cat back on it. Your not gaining any power without it and your just unnecessarly polluting. Other then that nice ride.

the cat doesnt do anything.. passed MD emessions with out it (hardest emisions test there is) and there is no reason to waste money just my $0.02 on it.
