I had another thread with FULL details on the journey to get my tunes ironed out, but it got muddled with several dyno plots, and my buddies similiar build. If you're interested in that - here's the link: http://legacygt.com/forums/showthrea...ew-180932.html
This thread will serve as the clean version of my original thread. Unfortunately, I don't have a ton of pics that are worthy, but I will brush the dust off the DSLR one day and update the thread accordingly!

via BrenTuning dyno tune, followed by a road tune for brush-ups. 19.5 psi boost.
To Do List:
Not much... Once the clutch goes, we'll start to look at those options as well!
Thanks to AZP Installs in NJ who played a huge part in my turbo install, taking time on a saturday to make it happen. Doing this in my garage just wasnt going to happen this year.
The car feels great. BrenTuning worked some magic and gave me the precise feel and driveability I was looking for, while still maintaining a conservative boost target and AFR. He really dives deep into the tables to make things work! It's a bigger turbo, so it took me a while to get used to it, and learn to drive it differently. However, once you figure things out, the 18g really comes alive! There is some obvious lag, but the hit makes it all worthwhile.
If i had to do it over again... Perhaps i would have went with a PW TMIC to gain some additional cooling surface.
Pics to follow....
