na i know that it is not going to help me get more pewer but just for the heck of it. but in future i m planing to upgrade the turbo after i know that if any of the internals are forged ubt if not i m going to oversize the cylinder and heads with forged internals in it. after that i want to go with .57 trim or c26 turbo with front mount intercooler+exaust+intake+and other stuff. but ya i m new to vw's, i m toyota guyz i have mkiii supra runing 425hp ijz motor. anyways i just want to know if i can increase the boost and also how can i hook up bov and boost gauge cuz i dont want to mess with german car. it neds special tool to fix it.thanks.
