ok, i was thinking of drive-ability. no laughn. but a frnd of mine builds custom headers for fun & has a net company that takes 6 t o10 a mnth. but 12 yrs ago when he got into turbos. he had a 2.3 in a mazda rz7 from a turbo coupe. had a hw35 trubo from a dodge ram on it making 25lbs boost. for his extra fuel he took a nos solenoid & put it to fuel rail. then into the intake. at wide open it just shot fuel..lol. but it worked till he got his injectors. i was shocked.

A quick rundown on my setup.... Im using a MHI TD04H that i plan on upgrading the wheel to a 19T. Mine has the 15G that you see in the 3000gt volvos and eclipses. I choose this turbo because i had not planned on building the car but wanted to get something that spooled ridiculous fast on a stock motor. Its now on 17psi and rated at 250hp which i have exceeded. The upgraded wheel is rated at 280hp which looking at the dyno should put me right at 300hp which is where i want to be.
