Cheaper to drop a new engine in it.


Want to go faster? Spend a little more and grab a K04 kit. Still cheaper than getting into a newer car.

I had my intake manifold go around 20k, and it is known to crack. I'd double check the service records to see if it's been checked (or replaced.) If not, you should have it inspected during the 70k...

Yeah, I'm also leaning towards the tune causing the smoke.


If not, it could be anything exhaust related... I'd start at the Turbo and work your way back.

blown head gasket? and/or blown turbo???


I'd assume with a TBE, that it's tuned... Do you know which tune it's running (or did he flash it back to stock?)

9 times out of 10, when these engine misfire and go into limp mode... It's a bad coil.






I upgraded to those coils while stock. :)

This is mine on STs, from a side view, and still quite a bit of thread left to go lower too. Also, this is the day after the install, so the springs are still settling too.

Yeah, I think changing the brake fluid and lines would go much further than changing all the hardware if it's still reasonably intact (not stripped or rusted.)

Yeah, if your state has strict emission laws, it isn't worth it.


I'm not spending 10+ hours each year switching downpipes just for a sticker. Especially since I don't own air tools or a lift.

I think someone bit the bullet over on Vortex.


They look okay as a product, but the key with any coilover kit is customer support from the company. :)
