The Story

This is the first car I started from a stock car with. This was my first car that wasn't a POS. Got it just before Covid hit and the market exploded. Been slowly modifying as tastefully as possible without destroying the spirit of the car. I do not want to go "big turbo" as I want to keep the low end torque characteristics as much as possible. I do intend to upgrade the turbo to Garret Powermax at some point. This turbo is essentially a stock turbo but garret spiced or basically equivalent to a hybrid turbo. So far this is just a stock turbo full bolt on car that has been lowered with a beefed up the suspension to keep good traction. I want it to be the best twisty auto crossing ripper I can make it while keeping it a nice daily street able car.
