Default Noobish from TX

I've had my nb since May of last year; it has a couple simple i/e mods.

I had planed on going with the FF s/c or the centrifugal type from 949 or where ever. But I think turbo will be the best if I want more than 200whp.

I've been on m.net for some time but I think I may make this site my new home.

Awesome, welcome, this site owns m.net. Post your location and car please, but where are you from in TX?

I foresee a 2560 in your future.

I know you're from Texas, but that could mean you're anywhere from 1 to 10 hours away from me.

Don't listen to these fools, GT2860R is the way to go Welcome to the board, and just erase all thoughts of supercharging out of your head.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'm from Lubbock; it seems everyone in Texas is from Houston, Austin, Dallas, or San Antonio.

My car is a 2004, white, base model, with what appears to be a crunchy 1st gear synchro.

I've been reading on m.net, and plan to read a lot more on here, especially about megasquirt. I was on sixthsphere.com, a saturn tuning site, and MS was the thing to do for anything more than bolt-ons.
I promise not to start any new threads without researching and using the search button!
