Yes, CPU upgrade, s/c pulley, exhaust, and I'm thinking bypass valve would be good too. The stock ones look cheap and unreliable. I have a feeling this upgrade will be coming up soon as a priority. But, there are no upgrades yet (that i know of), so we just have to be patient, and let the genius gearheads hook us up!

Talk to some of the guys on the boards list the seats wanted in the buyin/sellin section. I have heard a LOT of guys who say they want the regular seats but still want the LSD so might be willin to sell or trade!

explain your thoughts on the bypass valve. I don't see how an upgraded one would be of any beneficial performance increase. It is just used to increase fuel economy basically.

The bypass valve is also limiting boost to 12psi. There are plenty of RL owners that have pulled and plugged theirs and are seeing around 14.5psi.

It is to a small extent. The pull and plug mod has been proven to be false. I have found that stock the bypass only leaches a small amount of boost within the last 300-400 rpms. To make 14 psi you need a smaller pulley. The bypass becomes and issue slightly with a smaller pulley as it will open, again at the end of the rpm range, but the car will make 14 psi for a significant enough ammount of time.

Yep, that's the truth. The bypass valve is PCM controlled, so if someone wrote the software it could be written out. You WILL NOT get 14 psi by doing that. It's all software and pulley swaps guys. Don't believe everything you read.
