What does that mean? 2004 already came with injectors good enough for stage 1 - injector upgrade was only needed for 2003 for stage 1.

AMSOIL synthetic chemical engine and transmission fluids will help increase horsepower/torque/mpg a few percent over conventional lubes.

Any dyno testing to back up this claim? I could feel a new set of plugs easer.

If you dont want that tranny rebuilt then I would stick with stock turbo and do little things. Maybe a little more boost from a custom tune. You could hit about 18 psi on stock 2 bar sensors and so if you dont want to install/rescale and do other bolt ons then 18 and under is perfect. Im manual and im already getting into a new clutch with the stock turbo and pump. Im jusr over 50000 miles. I do spike high though and still have the 2 bar sensors so I lean out bad if I keep the boost too high.

Edit: do a boost leak test and full tune up also. I gapped my ngk iridiums to .30 because of spark plug blowout. But after all that was done the car felt totally different. You wont believe how many boost leaks youll find.

AMSOIL didn't run the test. Cycle Solutions Inc. did. I thought everyone knew chemical synthetic oils produced more horsepower than conventional oils. One of the reasons the pro racers use it. Here's a bunch more http://www.google.com/search?q=amsoi...ls=en&tbm=isch .
