Interesting reading about myblueGTI’s two turbo blow ups... anything I should be aware of when reinstalling the new turbo? Pre oiling anything? I’ll also try and check the wastegate prior to firing everything up... gotta get OBD11 back up and running

Reviving this thread. I replaced my plugs with stock ones about 1k ago and am about to install an IS20. Do I need to replace them again with RS7's?

Probably not. APR recommends changing the gap on your spark plugs to 0.024", so you might want to do that when doing the swap, but otherwise I would just replace the plugs with RS7 plugs the next time you need to replace them.

Perfect! I'll just keep everything stock for now and when I want to add a little bling i'll switch the plugs up.

Dumb question, but does the DP have to come out to install the turbo? Or can I just remove the vband and just pull the turbo out without touching the DP?

Thanks! I am thinking about doing just the IS20 + JB4 to get a small bump in power to not kill my clutch. I'd add a DP when eventually replacing my clutch, though.

Also, is there any way to get support from Burger Tuning for a Map 6 tune if you buy the JB4 used? I'd be willing to pay for the turning or something if that would help. I just don't want to go through the hassle of selling mine and buying a new one if I already have one in the car.

If you email George, he can walk you through setting up good map 6 settings. You'll be sending him logs and he'll reply back with suggested settings and does it for free :). Although IS20 with no other mods is common enough to find what you need by browsing these forums if you want to do it yourself. You need to make sure you have data cable to go with your JB4 if the one you have didn't come with one.

If it's your first time take it out. Easier to work on the turbo oil line.
Aw man, looks like the driveshaft will have to come out. :(

Yeah but I didn't want to spam the thread with a bunch of my logs lol. I guess I'll just focus on getting the IS20 and getting it installed, then come back and bother the forum (and George).

Can I do it over Bluetooth through the app?
