Okay, gang;

The turbo bug is biting me, and I need to make it stop. I have a nice nitrous setup, am knocking on the 13-second door, on an engine with 149,000 miles on it.

I'm a lucky guy.

I don't need a turbo.

But I'm starting to want one now, and that scares me.

Somebody tell the turbo bug to go away, please. If not, then tell me why I need a turbo, and why I'd be smart to start off with a GTiR manifold and T28.

Okay, guys....let me hear it.

Who says you cant autoX with a turbo? I plan on doing it sometime and every time I go to an autoX there is at least 3-4 turbo cars there.

As for autocrossing....I'm now in Street Modified, so anything goes. And, most likely, anything WILL begin going next season.

I think a turbo that spools up quick, but isn't capable of tons o' boost (T25 or T28) would be *perfect* for autocrossing.

Just a tad bit more power than I have now would be great in autocrosses, IMHO. Then turn the boost up and go drag racing. I know I'm playing two different fields here....but see no reason a compromise kind of setup couldn't be reached.

Then again, I know nothing.

Is there a dual ball bearing unit that's the same size as a T28? I would think that it would be killer for autocross. Less lag, if any.

Yeah for autocrossing especially, you'd want a smaller, quick-spooling turbo. Rob Cadle could probably fill you in on which turbo specifically, but I think there's a T28 variant that's full ball bearing that should spool pretty quickly. Even my GT30/37 starts going into positive boost by 3100 RPM, and that's almost good enough.

And no, you can't make the turbo bug go away. It's here to stay.

Well, Zak, if the turbo bug is here to stay, I might as well get cookin' on it, no?

Rob Cadle did suggest a turbo, and that's one of the options I'll have to consider.

Let's see....my NOS setup (with manifold) should net some decent $$$, so I can afford to do this.....

OK, turbo for Greg!

That was easy.

You punk.
I thought we were going to work on a progressive nitrous controlled SR20 powered car. Oh well.

Punk? Okay.....

Buy my NOS setup, and you can do the progressive thingy your self.

Of course, I still haven't purchased SQUAT, so the nitrous thing is still possible.

I just like the attractiveness of a power-adder I can use while autocrossing. The SCCA allows turbos, but no nitrous, for some strange yet-unexplained, reason.

You've entrusted me with some secrets, Ryan. Don't make me start talkin'...
