Default 05 turbo conv.

I just got a 05 turbo gt ho, 45,000 and in great shape. I put an airaid air filter, live wire plug wires and NGK Iridium ix plugs. First off I did not change the gap It was .50. I have read that I should change it to .32-.40???? The car came with a modifide exaust. Looks like it was cut at the cat. and a tubular type ( glass pack) and Y'ed to duals, sounds great. wondering what I should do next. s2? need advice.

I recently found out that half way through '05, they changed the intake manifold from Aluminum (which is what my '03 GT has) to the plastic version found on '06+.

If you've got the Aluminum one, I'd say swap out the upper+lower for the plastic one. It's the next thing I plan to do.

Also, recommend going to and checking out the mod bible. Tons of great info!

true story on mod bible! ^x2 also drop that gap to .032 to .04. then i'd go with a s1 pcm and stage 2 wastegate to start with. also you may think about getting a DSP tuner instead of a S1 if you've got a 5 speed tranny. that should be a great start for ya
