I took his car for a drive and the EFR turbo is GOD. Makes same power as my GT3071 did but absolutely completely rapes it on spool. The damn EFR spools as fast as a GT25. Absolutely crazy. Super super quick in 1-2-3 gears, and pulls like a champ to redline. Total, ******* win.

All this said, I don't think I could build a turbo car without an EFR ever again.

I know, if I only heard back from Jerico, then we would talk 700. Apparently they don't like returning emails! I want to start the sheet metal inside the car and it would be nice to know if I know to modify anything if I put a Jerico in the car. I will give them a call tomorrow!
