Pinturbo75 Turbos are new to me for sure. I just couldn't stand reading all the fun you turbo guys have with yours, so I had to have one..

Where do I go about getting the parts you listed and how do you turn boost up. Are they bolt on and plug in items?

It's pretty fast now! I could only imagine what a few upgrades would do for it.

google (gillis valve), that takes care of upping the boost.... take a look at your injectors and see if the body is green(30 lb) or brown (36 lb) ..... also look at the tag on the ecu near where it plugs into the harness..... it should have a #and letter combo like, pc1, pk1......la3, 8ua... let us know what those are and wi can let you know what you have and can do...

Racer, the wife wanted to see northern AZ, NM, and TX so we didn't come back across your way..

I'm making another run out west in October.. Are you still wanting the parts.

And yes, I owe you a hand shake.
