I've been driving around for about a few weeks now with turbo. At first, it felt incredible. I'd even bring around some spare underwear. But now, the car just doesn't feel the same... No big tuning changes. Tires still shred at about the same boost/rpm conditions.

It just feels slower.

The answer is always more boost... with supporting equipment of course.

curious, what psi is this at currently?

When I first slapped the completely base greddy kit on (though I already had plans for many changes) I was stoked about the difference in power. To me it was night at day. Now, at I dunno probably ~200 whp I am extremely content (this was my goal) and am shocked at, comparatively, how slow the car was back when it was just the normal greddy at the normal 4.5 psi. While I'll be staying at this level for at the minimum the rest of this year (plenty of other areas to work on during this season of autocrossing), I already know that down the road, money and time permitting, I will be doing more. Yes, it is addicting.

a built engine and a 2871 should do the trick

I went from 94whp/78wtq to 261/252. It was pretty cool.

12 PSI currently. Haven't dyno'd the car yet, but power estimates from highway pull datalogs with some hand-wavy aero correction yields an averaged hp of mid-190's from 4k to redline with ~50deg ambients.
