Well ok... I've decided that i migh upgrade the TX5 already, Im thinking Either a KF Laser TX3 Turbo or an AT/V Turbo, now it's pointless asking ppl here what i should get, coz i know the answer would be "Go the Telstar"... i mean, i do like the AS but like everyone says, the AT is simply better... but i also wouldn't mind a Gen 1 MX6 (sorry but i think the gen 2 is a tad... well... ugly *awaits slapage*) so yeah, stuff it, I'll ask anyway; Gen 1 MX, AT Turbo or KF TX3 Turbo? they all cost around the same $5k ish, so, well im saving, then im selling, then im spending... the thing that has made me realise this is the fact that an intercooler would hard to put on the AS and i cant run a FMIC (no problem with that :P) but I do need an IC...

also im not sure if ive got one of them amps but i remmber i had a matalic blue Philips amp today so ill have a look tomorrow for you
Ive got a turbosmart boost controller next to my battery, permanently set on 11-12PSI. It does hit the cut sometimes but being auto its easy to get around.

They both look alright, but the 800w looks better

Well it needs the top 1/2 of the inlet plenum put on with injectors and such. Ive got to swap the housing by the distributer for one of the temp sensors to fit (The donor car was Non-Turbo - its the same head) but it has different sensors obviously. Needs Valve cover put back on, I want to paint the valve cover same as the TX5 I sold you except RED - Just to freshen up. Needs an oil catch can, EGR cleaned out. A bit of work but the end is near

nah mate it's all good... future plans, that and i need a job first anyone know of a place that's looking for workers? I'm not sure if I'm gonna upgrade or not yet, it's nice to have a rare car, there's not too many AR/S Telstars that dont have rust on em, and it's even rarer to have a turbo, So i might just do mine up and then sell it... Thans for he offer though, i would buy it if i had the money... just aslong as you get another MX gen 1... it's nice to see em round once in a while... :P
