dude u got it prety allright i paid $2900 but its running 9 psi stock and engine and turbo rebuilt i was wondering if u knew how much kw stock runz

Posted by: luke1 on December 6, 2003 [ Car Profile ]

i think they run about 80 something kw completly standard but the best thing to do to start off is to put an 2.5 inch exhaust and that puts up the kw heaps

mandrel band including dump pipe of course smile.gif

not sure how big the turbo is in that thing or if there are any bolt on replacements but you might consider holding the dump pipe off until you sus out the turbo situation, dont want to install a dump pipe only to find out there are no bolt up turbo upgrades which means either a new custom manifold and dump pipe or adaptor plates for both..

back to your ride luke, that there is a mean example of an eariler model tx5, detailing under the bonnet looks great, esp considering the age of the vehicle, keep up the good work cool.gif
