My Ride: spins 4

I just want to say a couple things...

Generally a 2.7t motor will be more reliable with upgraded turbos than stock K03s considering what's taken care of during the turbo install. My B5 has been more reliable than my E46 with double the mileage... point; both manufactures have their issues.

You do not have to build the motor to make 470-500 whp safely on the 2.7t. Look at the recent gt2554s and tial s605 kits. Both designed to achieve just that. 500+ whp, then you would have to look to start touching the internals.

Okay, carry on with the drama
