That'* really sweet. But only a 15.9 sec 1/4? I'd expect more in a turbo'ed V6 that was based off of the GN engine.

That does sound a bit light. What do these things do stock in the 1/4? Minutes?

I always thought it was in the 16'*. Maybe they didn't put too much boost in that.

Well that turbo added about 50 hp. That means it makes a bigger difference than a ser 2 supercharger but considering that this motor is only good for 165 stock, and it doesnt say that there were any cam or exhaust/intake mods, I'de say that 215 isn't too shabby. A l67 swap would be more practical though. Imagine how fast the tranny would break in this car

Those old trannys are beasts though. What kind of compression did those old 3800'* have?
