Power to weight. That 350z would smoke you from 60 to 120.

congratulations... you kicked a fat pig with a slush box. I'm about as impressed that my n/a miata can stomp a V6 auto mustang.

I'm sure it will be faster when he gets his tuning sorted.. The Dp should be upgraded per comments 2.5 or better + tuning then you can talk about smokin cars :-)

Hey! You get tire mileage like me!

And I'm still really interested in how this kit turns out, and if you end up retailing it for a good price. Bring on the dyno numbers.

Does it feel a lot faster than it was NA? Like, a LOT? Or just quicker than it was so far?

Oh and zoidberg ftw.

ok, paul bought this turbo kit from me and he claims that turbo is in fact NOT A GT2554R

just wanted to give everyone a heads up so you dont end up buying it from them.
