Figure'd you guys would dig my roommates car. Check out the mod list, almost everything has been upgraded. We've learned alot tuning and building it. If ya'all got any questions or comments feel free to shoot away.

Other 3800'* is a forum to post problems, so I'll move this to General.

Got any track times? What kinda power do you think it has?

I apologize for the mispost. As of now I can't say its making more than 325hp. We're running into a problem where the car wont take more than 80% throttle in any weather over about 60*F. He seems to feel its the wastegate opening early and letting boost off. Granted, he only has it tuned to throw about 8-9psi in at max boost currently, I think he said it'll handle up to 16. We only have about 1.5 more months (here in MI) to play with the car before it gets garaged, so if anyone has any ideas let er rip.
