congrats, and yes you will have problems, everyone does, but since your not messing with your head, you shouldnt have as bad of problems as some of us do. JUst put it on and go, and as long as you did everything correct, and just keep it the way it is, you should be fine

a manual boost controller or any type of boost controller for that matter...
just run your boost off the supplied 6lb wastegate spring...w/o a controller you won't be...

Re: Ordering C2 stage 1 tommrow.... (rosado8)

i gonna get it insyalled by a shop the right way. i dont wanna have problems for the amount of money im spending on this kit. are they gonna be huge problems, or just stupid little stuff here and there. i got rid of my last turbo car because i had nothing but problems. i dont wanna have to go through it all over again with this one.

Go easy with it - low boost - don't beat on it.
It should be VERY reliable.
You'll need the yearly maintenance of a turbo car... Otherwise so long as you stay in low psi - you'll be fine.
It's the BIG number cars that are down for the count right now. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

And you will pay a fortune, almost half of the cost of stage I kit itself
