However, I already put everything back to stock so I won't have anymore updates on this project until the summertime at least.
Sounds like some good news on the turbos. I know it's a pain to keep taking them on and off, so I don't blame you for taking a break. I'm being forced to do the same right now just because of demands at work. Can't wait to see your update in a few months.
