Yes, I know that, actually I didn't but now I do. Now I know that a 16 * car can be a 12 * car in a sneeze but it'* the cost. Almost five grand I'm not sure if the installation charge was included but I'm pretty sure it is.

If I put aside 100 dollars a month for 3 and 3/4 years, I should get the money. But right now, I think I really want to work on the apperance first. Just clean her up then get used to college life in the fall then we'll see from there.

Wow, 400 hp in one day, up from 205.

Actually from the last "rumor" I heard was Intense was going to be in the 900+ range!

And Charles did that on a bad turbo. If he would've had a "good" turbo he would be close to 10'* with that kit!

With a custom PCM, sure. But it'* still only a matter of time until it must be 'built'. You have to figure that into your budget ahead of time.

Whoa, looks like it'll be costly but it might be worth it. I'm surprised that it comes with a free install, that'* almost unheard of these days.

Maybea diesel intercooler from the junkyard could be used and save everyone a lot of money.

Just an idea. I'll have to wait after college to see if my car is still around and if I'm not too deep in debt then I'll get a turbo.

Actually, we are pretty close to 900 and within a month or two should be at 1000 horsepower (crank). We are pretty close to a fix on the input shaft problem as well. 2006 is going to be a fun year

Really, I didn't know that they stopped making them because they're tough, I thought they stopped because everyone is going to OHV now instead of pushrods.
The 3800 is OHV. You must have meant to say SOHC or DOHC.
