My next mod decision is tearing me apart! lol please help :D

It's going to be a very long time until my next upgrade after this. And I'm having a hard time choosing. I looked through the other threads regarding of next mod decisions, which were no help.
It's between an EF2 or rpf1, or maybe something small.

I have all the basic bolt ons, upgraded fuel and tuned on e85.

exterior are all stock besides window visor

thanks in advance for your opinions :thumbup:

Turbo = stress and worry about your stock internals, the added price of retune, etc etc...

Only problem with the RPF1s is they can kiss a curb, your turbo can't (well, it CAN... but that'd be the least of your concerns at that point).

Only problems with the turbo are the longevity of your stock block and your new tune.

On E85 you'll likely need new injectors unless you're tremendously oversized for E85 on stock turbo already and have the headroom for the extra flow.

(I voted RPF1)

I have 1000cc injectors, will it not be enough for the EF2?

Thanks everyone for the answers. It's almost 50/50 between them. Turbo will be much more fun than wheels. decisions decisions.

I asked myself that same question before. With a bigger turbo on E85, you won't be able to take advantage of the added power because of the stock internals. The added power won't be worth the turbo, turbo installation, parts to get everything running & the retune. Get some wheels for sure, a lot cheaper and it will change the look of your car drastically. With E85 on the stock turbo, you have enough power anyways :p
