And i wonder what upgrades would be good...i have an xtra 88-89 harness , probably i could swap it, i have 2 secondary injectors  (just in case the ones in my car dies on me) , an extra ecu and ignitor box...could i use a bigger turbo if this car wasnt intercooled? !

What other thing besides the normal tune-up things?! I know filters, lines, fuseable links, sparkplugs etc..

I guess I don't fully follow what your asking. What maintenance things you should do once you get one? That depends on the history of the car, the quality of the previous work done to it, and lots of other things. Its just too general of question to give you a fair answer in my humble opinion.

i am with speedyquest on not understanding what your asking.

just intercooling the car and upping the boost a little will turn a flatty into one quick little car since its much lighter then the widebody. if you upgrade it to the 88-89 system and run about 14psi on a stock turbo with it intercooled i would say it would run low to mid 14's in the quarter. but just like any car you want to make it run 100% before you even think about doing any mods to it.
