I.e. you're going to have to stop holding your car together with zipties and use garden hose as IC pipework.

You guys must be F1 drivers spinning your motors to 7k, everyone knows ideal shift points are at 2k.

I think it would be great for the track, but not for street or autocross.
I say lets see acceleration G data for all gears if possible. See how big of difference this turbo unit is between the different gears.
Also like to see how minimal the turbo lag is acceleration G data say 5th gear
starting at 2k rpms to 5krpms vs 3500 rpms to 5k rpms.

How much do you suck at auto-x that you constantly find yourself at that low of an rpm? I only ever see below 4k rpm on the start, after a spin, or if I really really ---- up an element and have to practically stop in order to recover.

1-2-3-4-5 gears. I lifted at about 110mph. I started at ~5mph. In 11.8 seconds


here's 2-3-4-5 at less boost. Speedo reads a few % low, actual gps speed is higher.
