I wonder if he even needs a wastegate to regulate the boost or if that damn thing doesn't make it to full boost.

What's the old joke? What's the difference between a 500HP and a 1500HP supra? They both run 10 second quarters but one does it with traction.

ive never understood why supra owners or any other, put those turbos on that don't spool untill 6k. i mean wow you have 1200hp, but is it even any faster then a 500hp supra that gets power at 3k?

And once that power hits, it is all smoke from there, awesome for burnouts, useless for everything else.

That should be interesting. I guess I will find out and start looking for the new rims that I want to get, and start thinking about pulling and rolling the fenders so that i can fit a little more meat on the rear.

225's og easy in the back but hell 240's could be done provided you kept it in the 24 inch tall range, in the front the 225's i have rub on the airbag deal in the inner fender when i a loaded at speed or in sharp turns not bad though. 225's are pretty good and the enkei rpf1's from goodwin racing ar very nice and light. + they where in stock and 100 bucks less than edge had them for good luck. Rolled you could fit some 300's but by then i would be running cheater slicks. wouldnt you?

Oh yeah, cheater slicks=broken rear and tranny. I guess I should just wait to do all that, because I know I wouldn't be able to resist lighting up the hides. Upgrade the drivetrain first. Traction good.
