If only there were some magical way to limit turbo boost when the 'wife' is driving. Maybe something adjustable so you could turn it up as 'her' driving skills improve.

What a crazy dream.

Should have installed a giant holset that spools at 3.5k rpm.. that would leave the low rpm range she drives in fairly stock.

Do you have any idea what Efini~FC3S does? That was a joke, right?

This thread is quite the cluster, and not just because of the OP.

In all fairness and seriousness, Wastemore, you should give some serious thought to the following:
  • Teaching your wife to drive with the full powerband
  • Pricing out a normally-aspirated build, 949 or TSE-style
  • Figuring out if you have the option for a refund if you cancel your Kraftwerks order (assuming you've paid anything)

Search "existential angst" for some legitimately useful reading on the subject.

Negative. I referred to post #86 to indicate we do more than just AX as Efini suggested.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Just sayin', you pointed out a post that basically said "bro, do you even race?" To a guy that works for a professional race team...
