Tony had been planning a big turbo upgrade on his 2004 R32 for several years before moving forward. Over this time, through extensive research and lengthy discussions, he decided on a non-intercooled Pag Parts kit with plans to add a front mounted unit later. Other future upgrades include a stronger clutch to transmit the mountains of power to the wheels and more boost. Stay tuned, as this build is ongoing and will receive updates as they are available.
