Those look like some nice rims. I also edited your post so your photos would come up.

I don't know about you folks with the nice looking green 2g a's. You're making mine feel bad. We should branch off on our own sub forum, only the dark green 95 TSi AWD's allowed in there.

Since you're a 95, go with the DSMlink when you have the funds for it. It will help support any future mods you do.

First mods all depend on your budget. Personally I would recommend ordering the Forced Performance Exhaust Manifold as it's on sale for $175 right now as opposed to the $375 retail sticker. It's a direct bolt-on, will help spool up, flows a lot more than a stocker. Plus you can sell your stock manifold to a 1g guy. I think the sale ends tomorrow though. You have to go on DSMTuner.com and look under the Vendor section to get the number to call for the special price.

Other than that, get a cheap manual boost controller and remove the BCS. Don't waste money on an intake pipe, just get an open air filter. That makes a pretty big difference. You can find a 16g pretty cheap, maybe $300. You just need the install kit. Exhaust is always a good idea. 2.5" should be big enough for a while.

But FIRST and FOREMOST...get a boost gauge. Don't want to be running 30psi on a T25 and not know it!

If you happen to be around the Hackettstown area, or Morris country area (or somewhere relatively close), I'd be more than happy to help you install some new mods!

Thanks for all the help. The dsm link thought is a little high for my budget. I just had to drop liike $1200 for a bunch of stuff. I had to get it inspected, and it needed a bunch of stuff like 02 sensors, tie rod ends and a new cat. which was mad expenisive. My car is like set up for California emissions and the regular cat doesnt fit? so they had to find a special one and it is taking forever to ship. so i figured why i had some time to wait im getting my friend to throw down some paint because its starting to look a little beat. i also have a few more things to do before I start modding. i need a new sunroof. i think one of the tracks is broken or somthing.i havnt really looked at it to closely. and i want to change the interior to black. So once all this stuff is taken care of il start modding. i did look into getting gauges. iv seen the ones on ebay for pretty cheap and they look nice. i think they were glowshift or somthing? and i wanted to get a boost controller but i have no idea how to install that.

I can certainly help you install the boost controller. It's just a bunch of vacuum lines that connect to your turbo. That's a great idea taking care of some maintenance work first! Many DSMers forget that and mod the car and wonder why it breaks. If you have the time, read up on DSMTuner.com and be sure to check out vfaq.com for more info on modding.

Yea...I'm also looking to change the interior to black. Be prepared to spend a lot of money and a lot of time hunting for parts. So far I've only found carpeting on e-bay for a few hundred bucks. Keep an eye out for "parting out" for sale threads on here, NJDSM, NYCCDSM, SJDSM, etc.

PS - I will have some parts for sale soon that you might be interested in and that I can help you install. I'll be sure to post a for sale thread next week.

I have been reading up one some of the faqs on some of the other dsm sights like dsmtuners and dsm talk. iv also seen alot of poeple painting their interior? what kind of stuff would you be selling? maybe next week il have the old car sold and some extra cash that i wont be needing.

I'm installing a whole bunch of new parts this weekend and should have a Walbro 190 fuel pump, RC 550 injectors, and a home built intake pipe that's a direct bolt-on for you. It has the recirc tube still and the two ports from the stock pipe.

Whenever my FP parts come in, I'll also have a ported 2g exhaust manifold, ported o2 housing, and a hybrid 16g with an 18g compressor wheel. It pulls pretty good, minimal shaft play. The o2 housing and exhaust manifold are ported to match this turbo. It'd be a great upgrade for your and relatively easy to bolt on. You would just need the 2g install kit (oil lines, etc.). I'll include the J-pipe with the turbo.

I split this topic and placed it in the parts discussion section since it branched off into talking about a boost controller.

If you need help on how to install something, please create a separate thread in the tech section to help keep this forum organized. Thank you.
