what if you port the stock exhaust manifold, would that help any? could that make the manifold weaker and cause it to crack?

Porting may help a bit, there is definately room for improvement there. You would have to remove a ton of material to make it weaker...

no need for a turbo blanket with this thing as it accepts the factory heatshields which are plenty.

like isaid i personally recommmend getting retuned instead of leaving the gmpp tune in there. have it tuned for your altitude, driving comfort and all that. if your bypass valve is fluttering you might want to look into that. the forge is feel should come with this turbo as i feel the stock bpv wont hold up as well.

like stated above...it has billet CEA wheels from percision. dual ceramic ball bearing center section as well.
if you left the gmpp tune on and didn't retune it, would there be any issues? Would there be any increase in horsepower with the gmpp tune on?

I've actually have done this but waiting to install it back on the car. I will say this, the stock mani(material wise) is very dense cast iron. My machinist hated me after he spent a good time porting and port matching it. Here is a pic while it was in the shop.

You will want to put a good tune on it for sure. The GMPP tune is okay but will not allow you to see the full potential of this turbocharger!
