    Looks great! I drove an FRS a while ago and had fun playing with it on back roads -to kill some time at the dealership while they worked on my car.

    I remember when Chevy made the Cobalt SS with an S/C which had a monstrous 200hp.

    Fastest car I owned was the car prior to my Volvo 240. Some sick person spent $30,000 sprucing up an old s10 blazer. I picked it up for $3,500 and drove it 4 hours home. It had a beautiful LT-1 in it from a corvette. Drove it for a bit and realize it's gonna kill me and I was getting tired of 8mpg around town.

    STOOK!!!!


    Latest virtual dyno puts my car somewhere between 210-220. Getting EBC configured right now. Car feels slow because the boost ramp up is so linear. It's bizarre. VD at 170 felt faster because of the 'hit'.

    I got a line on a 6 speed trans and a 3.6 rear diff (current is 4.3). 6 speed final gear isn't an overdrive so it revs higher at highway speeds which blows. I'm thinking of picking it up

    Goals for the next year are:
    Install 6 speed and 3.6 rear diff.
    Potentially doing a 'rods only' engine build.

    Given the fact that I really don't want to mess with other setups/turbos etc... The above setup should be good for 250-300. Likely 275ish maxed out before the turbo produces more heat than power because it's pushing too much air to be efficient.
