    You took the turbo off that needed a standalone to work properly to put in a different motor then want ITB's with a standalone?

    Yup wanted a fresh start. That old motor was toast. Itb's will be in the future and yes, a standalone as well. For the time being tho I just want some track to to get out there and have some fun....

    You have no idea what you are talking about. Don't waste your money.

    Leave the stock motor. Come drive. You will quickly learn what is and isn't worth while.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but: That motor was "freshly built" by Ben like a long time ago, like 6-7 years ago.. wasn't it? Then the motor went to Liam, then to Andrew, now you.

    Better set up than the previous one, you'll like a little bit of cam power instead of lagged out turbo power.

    Yup that sounds about right. Around 25,xxx kms. Runs way better than my other beat 4ag turbo haha.

    And yes Warren I wanna make it out to a few events the way the car is. Im not modding it for a while now, just wanna lock the rear end.

    I agree with lots of what you are all saying, but the important part is that it runs well now.
    Doing things right is the way to go. Plus he got everything for a steal and shouldn't feel bad. Car feels great except for it's dumb gear ratio.

    Forget about ITB's and just get an LSD and start drifting... actually weld your diff and start drifting. Although I love ITBs, I would recommend that you don't use them for drifting. If you are going to setup a certain motor, do it based on what sport your car will be running. For circuit racing, I might suggest ITBs... but not for drift. I'd suggest that you don't sell your turbo setup and you just drive the car NA for now, get used to it then throw the turbo on once you get better at driving.... when you turbo it would be the time to do stand alone... stand alone is a must at that point. I like Haltech, MS, Vipec and recent experience forces me to now add Microtech to ECUs I like. It's your choice really, based on budget and how much you want to learn about standalones yourself.
