Default Where to Start?

I did it. Hard to believe it, but I got the '06 NC today.


I have to say, I really like this car even more than I had anticipated, probably because it's mine.

Where to begin? I have to say, the car really is smooth and it zips along alright, and I can tell it will do 120mph + easily, but she's going to need some boost. Haven't done enough homework yet, but well, "I need boost!".

The six speed is a trip to drive. Going to take some getting use to. 4th and 5th gears are not the 4th and 5th gears that I've been use to for so long with various other applications.

I love that color. First step with any to-be-boosted car is to save enough money up that breaking expensive stuff won't leave you with a car you can't afford to fix.

The NC looks really good. I'm glad you decided to get it.

BEGi has a decent kit out for it.
I think someone on here made 280whp on 10psi or something like that.

I is j e a l o u s of the size wheels that can be stuffed under the NC.

BTW- A couple of people have done Renesis swaps into the NC...and I've already seen a LSx in one as well.
