    Welcome Chris!
    Enjoy your stay.
    I think what Mike was reffering to was the white/silver looking paint on the front lip...most people call that Evo Mod

    i would reccommend buildin up the head too so you can rev higher and use the full potential of the gt30

    have you looked into the GTX series

    stock bottom end could handle a gtx3076r no problem and you wouldnt need to run as high of boost on that size turbo compared to the puny k04

    not sure what the k04 is (i would think t3 but not sure) but id get a new turbo mani since the stocker sucks. as far as boost goes not exactly sure. stock internals probably no higher than 20psi but thats all dependent on what size turbo you end up going with and how much air it actually flows.
