I was thinking a MiVEC. Maybe a later Diamante model like Vr-x. The stock engine has 186,000+ miles on it. Would you suggest swapping or waiting until it completely fails or wears out? I get p0401 code and p0510.

    That was my first option, but I would like to do heavy modifications to it. Would a new turbocharger go well with the engine it has? being all used and old. or what would be best to increase the horsepower...engine wise?
