This is for all of you on here that really have cars. Lately I've been seeing people claiming cars they do not own. What is your current setup. Turbo size, boost level, Internals, Fuel management etc...NA's should chime in on this also. I would like to see if any of you NA guy are running 12:1+ cr's. Anybody taken their cars to the tracks or have actual dyno numbers with their sheets posted?

I'm just wondering what some of the people here are running and have any reviews or inputs on the parts they have.

Hmmm...I guess people on here really don't own a modded car on here huh?

I only know of about 4-5 people with real modded cars but are everybody on here just posers?

I remember you.. But I was just wondering what other people out there have. Guess I had too high expectations of tuners really being on here.

Disco potato to a 35r......haha I would just up the boost of the disco potato if your going to run the 35r at 15 psi too. Save yourself some money.... The 35r doesnt even get effecient until over 30+psi.

Well honestly i dont have a modded car but then again i never said that i did. Im a racer so i useally have other peoples cars that are already tuned for track use. over at the Waterford Hills track I had a lap of 1:27.72 in a tuned 4 door Integra. if i remember correctly that had a swapped engine with a dino of 322bhp @ 6300...... It also ran off about 22lbs of boost, i think

but in terms of my car im in the process of buying a new one but i hope to put a nice suspension setup on it with a supercharger

Unfortunately I live in Britain, insurance cripples us, especially if you're under 21. £3,300 on a VW Golf GTI 1.4 (Roughly $6,000 US) a year. With no mods and keeping it in a garage.
On private land I drove my friends black Ford Granada Mark I , with an MG 3.5l engine (V8) and left hand drive. It was a beast.
I should be driving in about a year, it's just hard to afford it and it'll only be a piddly VW or Fiat.

Yup there is no gains at all on having a twin turbo 4banger. Actually it has nothing but disadvantages. You will have more piping because you will need to split up the cylinder pulses farther away from each other. You will have to make much more room to accommodate the two turbos. Dual oil feeds and drains, dual down pipes "Y'ed" together along with dual "Y'ed" lower charge pipes. If that wasnt enought there you will have higher than usual underhood temps.

MarshallCarnage- Is that full coverage rate? If so thats pretty much the same over here in the states. We'll actually what I do now is when I buy a car I put it half ownership to my Dad so that he can insure it under his policy and I'll pay him the difference. If you parents have no accidents at their age chances are their insurance rates are only a couple hundred a year.

You know..thats funny. My buddy has a Wrx with an HKS highpower and a stage 2 cobbs tune running about 16psi. Its pretty decent but his clutch is on the way out now from constant launches.

my dad has an e30 bmw that has a turbo. It is strictly for racing, cause its not legal on the streets anymore. idk about the setup tho. The exhaust pipe looks like you could fit a baseball down it
