I wouldn't call that an alternative to a larger turbo at all. Even after you have the motor built up and compression raised, the exhaust still has to exit the highly restrictive exhaust housing, and the intake is still crippled by the tiny impeller. The higher compression does make the engine more efficient with what it has, but there's a much finer line for safety that you end up on, and something as simple as a bad tank of gas can cause a very very bad day.

yes, a quick spin to clean them or to dry them, since most tracks dont give you the option to drive through a dry area before lining up, the just have a big puddle right in the middle right before the lane (i fking hate when they do that) im just saying, becauseracecar dude that do massive 10 second burnouts with their $50 street tires to heat them up mad tyte jdm style so they can stick betta'... why? just why? and me steriotyping? fk YES! i am!

alaskanzx5 Needs an upgrade for the Turbo. Little bit of a bigger Turbo cold air intake and an exhaust and then a retune. Fmic and colder spark plugs sound like a good choice to and the clutch will most definitely need an upgrade. Wont take much to get into the 13's.

I hope the next St is a little bit lighter and can do 13s stock or atleast low 14s
