Subscribed. This looks amazing. I had no idea you could even change from an auto to a manual. 80% of the time, I'm happy I have an automatic, because it makes commuting life easier. But if it ever becomes my fun weekend car, this will be a must-have mod.

I had a vortech blower on it running 9psi for a while and wasn't a fan of it. Looking into ess systems now as boost comes on much sooner, how do you like yours?

i thought so

I love my TS so much that I went with the additional unit. It has power like a V8 and it is so easy to drive...stay out of it and it acts normal...get in it and it acts like a v8

Would a 6 speed bolt directly to a 5 speed with a 6 speed clutch/flywheel?

What do you mean? yes if you change your 5 speed flywheel/clutch to a 6 speed parts you will be able to bolt on a 6 speed box. shift linkage is also different.

That's exactly what I was wondering, redbull. I couldn't decipher if a new TC and DS was needed also. Thanks!
