Re: do i belong here or not..? (Max Wells)

I think your year is when the turbo switched to the KKK-K24 as well. <p>But you have no AWD, therefore no crappy angle gear issues, no DEM going on the fritz, etc. And no 4C, therefore no issues with funky ride. <p>Of course, you don't have the blue gauges, and that's worth all the problems.

Plenty of non-R owners post here just because this seems to be where a good portion of the Swedespeed action happens to go down. You're cool as long as you don't put random R's all over your T5. Nothing perturbs me more than that.<p>That's my rant for the day.

Engine is very close to the R engine. Both feature dual VVT, K24 turbocharger, same manifolds, injectors, rods, etc. R is 2.5l with smaller cylinder walls compared to the 05+ T5 2.4l. Although the 05+ T5 engine doesn't produce as much power as the R engine from the factory, with a chip it hast he potential of approximately 320-330hp.

I believe those should be moved to "general fwd/awd" ... not ALL problems are R only.

Re: (JARMO)

If you follow the soap Starman vs JRL in other forums you would understand. These two push each others buttons to no end, its actually very entertaining. <p>There is a rumor that they are married, no wait in episode 16 I believe they are father and son. I can't keep track.
