Re: Boost

I have bought my turbo, I bought it in january. It is a 600HP unit similar to the ones on the new XR6 turbo (different compresser housing). 3 weeks ago I bought an EB to put it on, now I am saving up for a manifold and all the other bits and pieces. I should be able to buy the manifold next week but it is my girlfriends 21st next week as well. So maybe it will have to wait until the week after.
It will be on straight gas and only running 7 pounds to begin with.
Hopefully it will net me flat 13's on the quarter.

Re: Boost

Very slowly building the engine to take the Turbo/supercharger at the moment (still undecided which I want). The funding has dried up, dam house! Time for a pay rise!

Re: Boost

No plans as yet, and I doubt there will be. If I want power, I'll sell my mont for an r32 gts-t.

Re: Boost

Im looking at it as a long term plan atm.
But may change my mind.

currently pricing stuff, and looking at other ways to go.

Main problem is insurance, as know one would insure me. And i think the risk is a little to big atm. So i may go the n/a route. will have decided pretty soon what im doing... i hope

Re: Boost

I could fit into either of the first 2 categories... buying a few bits doesn't mean it's ready for installation. But I too am viewing it as a long term project. It is easy to buy a car which is already fast, but I'd gain a lot more enjoyment out of taking on the best of the imports in something True Blue™.

I would love to but there's no way in hell it will happen in the next year, maybe after that.

Re: Boost

I was seriously planning on a AU forte TSA st1 sleeper, but at the moment, my priorites have changed, so it may not happen for quite some time.
