    Hey Brian, car looks great as usual. Future plans are fantastic as well. I am wondering why you chose not to go with the GTX turbo and also why not have the anti-surge machining? Are you going to stiffen the rear any more from where it is now? My rear suspension felt loose after a few mods to the front. I basically have a gutted interior like yours and the weight reduction was noticeable. Just wondering what your input on all this is...

    It might be worth your while to post up what mods you have to be able to compare your suspension setup with what Brian has... and to possibly determine why your ass end feels loose.

    The selection of the turbo is quite easy.

    1. This combo is not available as a GTX and it was $1000.00 BNIB custom.
    2. This exact turbo has a T-25 Inlet
    3. Anti Surge/No Anti Surge... whatever (Honestly should be focusing on things that could actually alter performance line the intake plumbing or Air Filter selection... A couple of holes drilled here or there looks more like a "Look" thing... than a design consideration... If it was that important, Garrett would have implemented it into their original design. I am not going to be anywhere near this turbos maximum limit, It is suited for up to 500 WHP, I should get 400 off of near 22 PSI)

    Are you talking about the car wanting to slide out in the rear on a corner?

    I set up my car to oversteer. Took awhile to get it dialed in, but oversteer on a FWD car means you just tip in the throttle and you'll straighten right out.
    Completely stock...

    Absolutely! So much fun to have the car on edge all the time. People who drive with me at AutoX are always amazed at how easily my car rotates... so much fun!

    Run your front tires 5-10 lbs more than the rear. Should clear up.
