Got all my boost leaks fixed that I didnt know I had before I got my guage. Also put in the blue spring in the forge and holy shit! my car is awesome again! I smoked a tuned MR2, GTI, V8 mustang, Cobalt SS, a JDM MR2, havent lost yet. It s awesome! I thought Id be more content with my car but now I want a GTRS!!!
has anyone gone from PC-16 to GTRS? and if so, Was it worth it?

you'll get like 70-80 more horses with the basic set up. With the 3 inch inlet and all bells and whistles you are looking atleast another 100hp gain over pc 16 with the gt71rs elim kit.

EMIL put down like 275awhp on 91 octane
vs. my 190awhp on 93 octance.

now he's like deep 13s....out of a maxed out k04 range. best k04s are running 13.9.

what spring did you have? I have pc16 and just use the one it came with...not sure what color it is though. How does it feel with a different spring?

The stock one is the green one. and dude, det it outta there!!! the car feels so much stronger at higher rpms. I had a boost leak on top of all this but still, Im sure u will feel a difference. I put the blue one in which is the second strongest. I want to try the red one but Im not sure what the consequences are for doing that. i heard its for 30 PSI +.

So as far as cost effectiveness and driveablitity, do u guys think its worth doing a GTRS or a custom T3/T4? i like the Idea of the GT2871RS since it has fairly reliable/tested software available, plus Id have to re-do the fueling system to run a larger turbo. Man, once I got some debt payed off and I move outta this shithole hillbilly town and back home, im gonna have to do this.

dude im skipping the ko4 and going strait to the GTRS71r elim. i've seen 300awhp out of them so i know it is going to be worth it

If I had to do things over again (and I had a little more money up front) I would just go w/ a 71R elim and CTapp s/w. If you don't want to fuss w/ your setup too much, yet still want something fast, this is the way to go. with a custom setup, there's alot of fabing things up and trial and error involved.

its all a matter of opinion and what the end user wants

i like my custom set up..i can change any part i want anytime i want w/o too much of a hassle

want to change turbo?...anything w/ a t3 flange and im good to go..the rest is just details

everything is give and take though

^ k0mpressed is right on, the one thing holding me back from going eliminator, is if i still want a bigger turbo in a couple of months after installing it, its starting from the ground up again pretty much

if you're not going to be happy knocking on the door of the 12's on pump gas, then yea you need to go bigger than Elims. you're talking Gt30's. Unfortunately, I"m hookd, and I see a 3076 in my future.
