I saw Jimmys car in person. It is a stripped down, nothing in it, 2000lb car. It SOUNDS really sweet, but that is the end of it. You will have the IRTB fanbois, like panda trueno who, based on his signature has everything from fuji, jumping up and down trying to convince that IRTB's are the shizznet. For throttle response they are great, for power, whatever.

What a noob. No ******* **** buddy. Why do you think turbo feels better at altitude compared to naturally aspirated? DURRRRR.... Uhhhh thinner air.. less oxygen content... MMEEEEOOOOOOOOOO.

I've always seen FI cars take better to hotter or high altitude climates. The N/A car is totally subjected to what the pressure of the atmosphere is at the time, so at a hot or high altitude climate, a N/A engine is gasping for air. A FI car is compressing the air it takes in, so the intake is not getting as much as air in a hot or high altitude climate, but it still getting way more air than a N/A car. I saw this with my N/A aspirated vette when I went to up play around with my buds up in Reno. My car felt totally different, seemed like I went from 435 hp to 350. My 1/4 time was the worst I had ever seen while my buds Evo was slightly slower, but not too much.

Because the 1.8s run TWO PCPros.

That's like an intercooled intercooler, right?

Thank God! I was thinking that there was a chance that someone out there needs to be wearing a helmet outside of the motorsport experience.
