About “#VF34Rex”

Just bought this with 55,000 miles. Has an aftermarket turbo, specs suggest it can run with an STi all day. Hope to get to a dyno soon to find out exactly what it's got.

About “Speedytang”

Owned for 10 years now and this car has been done in 3 major stages. 1st stage 8 years ago was Nitrous. Nitrous went to fast and cost to much to fill and I like my power when I hit the pedal. Used a Supercharger(Paxton VR4) for 5 years and enjoyed it and if a negative you can't get a 8 rib belt tight enough without worrying about the front crank breaking off. My most recent change happen last winter when I installed my custom Twin Turbo Intercooled parts. I build just as much power as my Supercharger with 6psi less boost and I can control when I want more power by tapping the electronic controller on the dash to Power Mode.
