why do ppl listen to max watts? (no offense)
the pioneer series of sub (except the top end $1500 each subs) have an average RMS (recommended) watts of approx 300 - 500w so the XP-480 phillips will be PERFECT! trust me on that, i had mine running a 1200mw (700rms) P5 Sony xplod and i floored some wanker who had 2x Kicker 15's (those square ones) so... yeah, moral of the story, only pay attention to the RMS Watts, and also, watts mean SHIT, my 12" Kenwood 100w RMS sub destroyed my sony :p...

yeah but it's designed so that if you bridge 2 ports all power is directed to that...

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...

Selva ive know nothing else but having a incab unit, i love it because you can fiddle with it depending on your driving mood, the weather or the hight you are above sea level. a long hose will not make a differance to a short hose, its not like its having to wait tobuild pressure up in to little hose before it starts charging the turbo.
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 :p
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.

Wobbly & Red ive got two amps aside if you want them, both are BOSS 4chs.

BOSS 1200watt 4ch -$99
BOSS 800watt 4ch- $89

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 :)
