Default Turbo vs Non T

Just peeled of 20,000 on my Gt Turbo. Other than switching to synthetic oil at 5,000 and changing every 4,000. I have done nothing to the engine. (OH, removed sillencers also) What maintenence needs to be done at 20,000? and how does that differ from the non turbo cars? I'm not a gear head (more of a wax head would be appropiate) so please respond with changes for normal driving, not racing. I would be interested in upgrades and what area would good to consider upgrading when changing. Are tune-ups required or is that a non-issue? thanks inadvance, Gary

Well I am kind of a nutt when it comes to maintaining my cars. You are supposed to change the tranny fluid at 15K ifin you got a auto.
Still trying to find the drain plug on the rear end.;&gt
