Yesterday, to congratulate myself on a very successful detailing of the car's neglected paint, I upped the timing to 18*.
Why on earth the timing isn't so set from the factory is beyond me, probably emissions, buncha treehugging sissies.
Anywhoo, up to speeds of about 50mph, the car feels plenty strong enough. I can feel Mister Torsen doing his thing out back frequently.
It's still a little short of oomph on the freeway, but still... most of my driving is stoplight to stoplight, and the hamsters seem to be doing a pretty decent job of things all of a sudden.
I'm sure the shine of this adjustment will wear off, and I'll be back to power hungry... but it's got me wondering, do I even want to deal with the expense and inconvenience of a turbo istall?
More importantly, how do you turbo guys stop from chanting "I AM SO GREAT" all the time?! I seriously cannot imagine another 150whp.
my head just pops when I try.
