id dare say if you did all those mods without a tun you will have major overboost/ limp home problems, id recomend getting the flash tuner, filter and cai first and running the generic tunes, then as soon as you get the exhaust put on have it tuned or it may overboost and run lean. Also you will be getting close to needing injectors and depending on the car, valve springs.

Thanks champ.I got told by the exhaust shop that after the mods that the computer "learns" the mods and everthing will be fine.Why will it go into limp mode and why will i need new injectors?

the ba ecu doesnt really self learn, by replassing the full exhaust it frees the system up alot more and causes the turbo to overboost, the ecu sees this overboost and so goes into limp.

As for injectors with the mods you want and a custom tune you will be right up near the 300rwkw mark, ive got 285rwkw with just cooler, piping, intake and injectors, by onmly changing the cat i will be into the 300's which is way more then the stock injectors can safely handle.

Check out APC in Myaree, they did a good job on my turbo.. Xtreme Ford Tuning in Midvale are also known as some of the top tuners around.

Another option is going to BPT Motorsport in Wangara/Landsdale, they built and tuned my EF Turbo....... Runs beautifully, theyve always got XR6T's in at their workshop..... Give them a call....

Yep they can both do the lot.. BPT mentioned above is also not at all a bad idea.
