Quick update on my Turbo








I bought this car from a forum member last year and it arrived looking as promised. Running as promised is another story. Although I donít believe the previous owner had any idea, the car was substantially down on power. Luckily I already had plans for a visit to the guys at AIM Performance and they were able to sort out all of the issues (with much trial, error, and head scratching). The car left there up 180whp and running so much better. Of course that wasnít enough so it went back recently for some finishing touches to get it to 700whp on straight 93 octane with a stock motor. Wow I love this car 😬

Nice looking car.

What kind of turbos? Lag doesn't look too bad, torque numbers look good, 475 at 3k, 620 at 3.5k, and almost 700 at 4k.

Very nice!! Curious about what kind of exhaust tips are on the car in the first pic? Also, any more pics of your y-pipe? Thanks!
