The engine is turbo friendly, it gets complicated when you have MS45 DME. That is all.

Update, currently you can purchase the Powergate 3 with Decoder for around $458 plus shipping. that reads/writes through the OBDII port of your MS41/MS42/MS43/MS45 DME cars. Including M cars. 4/9/15

WARNING: This modification is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm due to the extreme G forces once turbo kicks in. ~ Nivo
The rest of my signature is reserved for pointless modification bits like: Halos | window Tint | carbon fiber roundels | short shifter
