As quick as a remaped 2.2 is (usually just as quick as a type r), I don't agree with badging I up as something it is not.
Still looks good and you have put a lot if time and effort into it, nice job!

thing is, type r grill has better air flow than type s grill, due to different rear housing, so it was only option, and you can"t put other bad than red one..

@farqui-someone already tried to repair old turbo, but it was disaster, so new turbo was only way to go

FYI the Sports grill comes with open back for improved airflow.

A non perspex grill that has a close back could have openings cut out after a few minutes with a dremel.

Ah, sorry to hear about your turbo failure :(
