The turbo creates a huge amount of heat under the hood, infact the hood is really hot to the touch above the turbo even after a short drive.

Yeah, I've heard of other guys who have experienced the same thing with the noise. Now that you got the turbo there, it'* a LOT of backpressure, 3" exhaust + straight-through (aka "turbo") muffler time!

Both have their pros/cons..... for daily driveability.... SC... for absolute power... turbo..... that is... if everything else in the engine/transmission can take it.

For those of you still waiting for videos/sounds..... sorry.... but since it only goes to 1-2psi right now... there isn't much sound..... :(
