183kmi - 1qt low
183kmi - Replaced glowplug #1 in cylinder #4
183kmi - Did stock hardware tune from a tuner who will remain nameless, boost was all wonky

That's an impressive list of mods / maintenance that you've done!


Can't wait to see the pictures, may have to come back to ask some questions about your tunes and lift.



Thanks!

Hi,

What are your thoughts on the VR6 front springs? how much stiffer are they over stock and how much lift did you get from them?

Thanks
Andrew
