Wow, I drank a beer (or 5)with drew carey there. NCAA tourney... 2004 East Tennessee State University made it to the tourney. Hell of a guy and covered everyone's tab that night. Anyway, Columbus is decent for a yankee town, until you order sweet tea.... LOL. Ever eat at lindey's? Fantastic food. So welcome, you need more boost.

yes have eaten at Lindey's.

I use to live in Temple, Texas, as I see you're in San Antonio...love SA.

and since you mention the "boost." would it be worth it to add turbo to a 1990 NA with 90K miles on it?

If you don't like making power then no, it's not worth it. If you do like making power then yes, it is worth it.

hi dustinb

can you send me some pix of your 90? also, at what mileage did you add your turbo?

i don't have the tools to DIY, unless all it takes is a ratchet set!

Takes a lot more then just a ratchet set to get a turbo system working. I haven't taken very many pics of my car recently but here's my car domain

Boost that bitch... It takes a decent ECU and a ratchet set... and a drill and tap. Then you are good. Maybe a sawzall too. You'll figure it out if you have any mechanical skill.
I have been boosted for a year now running more boost than I should and all is well. Fastest droid recorded my car at 0-60 in 4.8 secs. The thing ended with rev limit in 2nd gear... I think you want booost.
