Bigger turbos spool slower but make more power.

Are you really honestly that dumb? Please tell me that you don't speak English and that this is the first time you've ever touched a computer.

What are pros/cons of the smaller /larger turbos to:
its life: They regret they have but one life to give for their performance
spool up: bigger = slower, smaller = faster
top speed response = 88 miles per hour/1.21-Gigawatts

Let me just try to be helpful.....


The FM kits are a waste of money. Buy a kit off ebay, just fully retard the timing to prevent det (approx 18* BTDC). The FM "voodoo" box does nothing but pull timing, but the user can just adjust it via the CAS. Everyone will tell you to get a megasquirt, or whatever, and just waste your time and money. Most of the pro-MegaSquirt post are just bots.



Anything smaller than the following will make no top-end power.




If you have a 1.8L, try the following:

FFS Coldside or bust

Remember powercards add about 15 horsepower, so get as many as you can.

Except instead of retard the timing I'm sure you meant advance it.

Well yea the turbo makes the engine spin faster, so you have to advance the timing in order to keep up with the power.

You come in here with no intro thread, give us no information, and ask a retarded question that has been asked 150,000,000,000,000,000 times.

What, exactly, did you expect?

I remember living in grandma's basement... never had to worry about laundry, hot food on the table every day when I got home from work, my bedroom had a refrigerated wet-bar in it, and a pool table, and a warm comfy waterbed, hell, it even had a stripper pole!!!

And who wants to pay for a mortgage? Hell, I had 15k saved up before I could even blink...yikes!!

Ahh, that was the life - if not for the evolutionary psychology which drilled into me the emotionally devastating feeling that I should aspire to one day have a girlfriend - I would still be there, halfway to retirement by now...
