      Ok... So some has said to me, that I need to have something serious wrong with my car. Well, I think i found out what the problem was tonight.
      Like alot off users here my BKR7E's are gapped to 0.22
      Well, I just regapped them to stock, and the car feel SO much stronger. The Peloquin has some serious problems in third gear. I dont hear any wheelspin straight foreward in third, but it needs to be right on the edge. It pulls like a train, all the way to 7000
      And I have problems holding the car steady on the road from 60mph at full throttle. And it just wont stop pulling

      Ok, my gearbox is broken. Parts came out when I was tapping off the oil. So now im in the thinking box off what to do.
      Hope the Peloquin is ok.

      It seems like your "regapped plugs" made a lot of difference! (if power is the reason why the tranny is broken)
      I hope your car will be on the road again shortly .

      Small update, without any pics yet.
      Ok, SQS is gonna deal with my gearbox, and rebuild the hole thing with their gearkit + Peloquin diff.
      And I just bought a brand new Garret GT35R A/R 82
      So no more A/R 63 and no more loosing all my power over 5000 rpm
      The OZ rims will get wider outer lips on the back wheels. And maybe gold nuts all around.

      No, I sold my charger. I have nothing but really nice things to say about the ZR2 charger. It was amazing.

      And like 70% off all supercharged VR6 owners, I went turbo.
      And im gonna boost from 15-20 psi all summer

      SQS Racing got my 02A at 11:00 today. At 16:30 I got a email. It was all done.
      Race gears, Peloquin and a complete rebuild. He said, it wasnt much to rebuild

      But the service and the price's that SQS deal with, is just AMAZING!!

      New turbo is gonna be fitted. Garrett GT3582R T4.

      HOTSKILLET98 Thank you for the pics

      I have never heard of any problems with the SQS gear setup.
      Yes the AP setup is not working as it should.
      The 02A casing might flex out, but if that happens, it happens.

      Im gonna use this car as a street car, and if something breaks that is the reality.

      Time will show. Im gonna run 10-20 PSI all summer with the T4 GT35R

      Ok..
      Took out the car yesterday. Has been in a warm garage since november. Battery was flat, but when that was fixed the car fired up right away..
      So I drove it to the shop, and the SQS gearbox is going in today, and tommorow.
      GT3582R are going in a little later.
      It was SO fun to finally drive the car again. The sound is just mean!!!

      I like the attitude. If I had $, better connections, and another car waiting in the wings, I'd do similar with my car.

      Info/pricing/link on gear set?

      2550 USD for it all. 150 Euro took SQS for the work. 200 Euro in shipping. Its like 1/3 off the price Quaife wants for their stuff.

      And they send me pics, when it was all done. Took 5 ours from they got the box, to send me an mail when it was all done.

      A 02A gearbox is nothing for this guy. He works with STI and EVO rally cars, so a 25 year old designed gearbox I asume is easy

      New SQS gearbox in yesterday . After I got the Kinetic stage 1 engine/gear mounts fitted I could hear the stock gearbox a
      littlebit inside the car.
      Now with the SQS fitted I can hear the "rally" sound a little more.
      But it feels really nice. You hear it well, when you take your foot off the pedal.. Hope it will keep up with the GT35 that are gonna be fitted in a couple off weeks.

      BTW: Anyone know the measurements on the oil return line on the Kinetic kit??
      Mine is hard and needs to be replaced. asap.

      just thaught I would recomend to you using ss braided line and I would just tap the block like all turbo cars should be. I tapped mine right above the crank. Once you do this you will never ever have to worry about your return line leaking again. I can snap some pics for you if you like.

      Ive been driving 3 full fueltanks with the new SQS 02A box.
      It feels very good so far. It can sound abit mechanic, but feels like stock. Car still drives with the TO4S A/R63 and I really dont like it past 5000 rpm. It totally looses power/punch and I get better speed if I shift around 5000 rpm, than over.
      Only thing I dont like right now, is the damn Bosch 044 fuelpump sound. Mounted under the car next to the fuel filter, its so much noise that I need to turn the radio up. My longtime girlfriend hate's that pump. Im getting used to it, but everyone that have had a ride with it have a comment to it.

      I wasnt sure about the boost pressure yesterday, but I found out today. It was 9 psi.
      The diffrence up to 15 psi, is amazing.
      And offcourse my oem ECU that C2 Motorsport provided me with is making this car run like a dream from 5 - 20 psi. Doesnt matter I think that this software make's the hole driving experience alot better. Ive said it before, and I can always say it again.
      The car feels exacly like stock. Diffrence is 15-20 psi and it pulls like a Boeing 737 with all that torque.

      Ive done 15 psi all day long today. Been driving for about 3 hours, and all I can say, is that 15 PSI pulls so hard that it can be times when Im having problems keeping the steeringwheel straight.
      I mean full boost at 3600 rpm, but after 4500 rpm it just pulls like nothing Ive been driving before.

      SQS box is very good so far
      New exhaust muffler today. Custom made, and the sound is not that deep and loud as the old setup. But past 4000 rpm, all noise hell breaks loose

      Pics and maybe a video will come.

      There is none for engines with 500ft lbs/700Nm+ of torque. As already mentioned, the 02A case flexes. Get about 50-75 burnouts and launches on slicks and see how the 02A runs afterwards. Loads of racers have tried - been there, done it, got the T-shirt.

      On the way to work today.
      You might be able to hear how the SQS box is making some noise. This is with Kinetic stage 1 engine and gearbox mounts.
