lol i think its kinda funny how when us boosted guys post up problems we have, everybody is like "oh gee, im glad i didnt turbo my p5"
no, you just didnt turbo it, cuz u were scared/broke/lazy, dont blame it on us lol

Simon, I must say...after talking with Ivan and a few others, they made me come to the realization that most of the problems are coming from people who do cheap out and don't buy quality parts at all...a lot of these people are turning up the boost and running on stock tunes...this was originally my plan as well when I first picked up the Speed, just to reuse all the parts and turbo it for cheap, but the more and more I think about it, why??? That is where all these problems are coming from...I want to have the car as reliable as possible with the supporting mods WITHOUT having to forge...the boost won't be turned up, but the setup will be hopefully as reliable as possible...

Turbo Parts So Far
  1. Stainless Oil/Coolant Lines
  2. Short Ram Intake
  3. Boost Gauge
  4. AEM Wideband
  5. SSAFC V2
  6. Turbolife FMIC
  7. Greddy Type S BOV
  8. ATP Wastegate
  9. Steedspeed Exhaust Manifold
  10. All new gaskets
  11. Spare Tapped Oil Pan
  12. Millenia PCV Valve
  13. One Step Colder Plugs

Question is though, to those of you that have turboed the P5, what else would be needed to make this setup even more reliable...what am I missing now from here...

Any help or input would be appreciated...

Go forged lol... good stuff tho man wish you the best on ur boost quest I bought all the best dropped 2g's on everything just didn't think it was worth it to turbo the p5 not that much of a gain but some ppl do enjoy it.

Alex, even though I'm sure it was meant as sort of a joke, I would save up and go forged if I was you. The winter is coming up and you may as well just wait til it gets nicer outside to install everything. That would give you plenty of time to buy the parts you need to build a forged block on the side and install it come spring. Just my .02.

I think the only thing that isn't quality is my fake type RS bov. Im replacing that with a real HKS SSQV.
