Most of the parts are not universal....definetly the turbo as well, the only "universal" mods are really just stereo systems and decals....thats about it though.

There's no such thing as "universal" mods. At least not anymore. Back in the day you could put the same Ford engine part on about every Ford made. But not anymore. Every part has to be custom-made for every single application, primarily because of the computers used in cars now.

Im sure some of the things we buy have universal alternatives, but from my experience, for the most part, we want the best. And thats why we are all using the same parts. This is a big part of the pleasure of this site is that we can learn from others mistakes and take advantage of those mods that worked out good for others. Sticking with the direct replacement parts is a more sound investment also because we already know it works.

Universal mods would be mbc, ebc, bov, some turbos(depending on bolt pattern) and intercoolers. There are some more but I'm too tired to think.
