      up until recently, more or less correct. as of the last couple months though, Jeff now has his own spot, and in house dyno as well ;):thumbup:

      then the last thing you need to think about is a turbo. grab a coffee, sit back and start doing some research :thumbup:

      and like said above, the trouble you would go to in making that old crap...

      fair enough, and maybe a safer bet so nothing stupid happens. and $14k into a turbo .:R is just a drop in the bucket if you want to keep pushing for power. but like you said, baby on the way....

      you know zevs car made that 650 at the tires, right? and over 500 lb ft, at the tires. like i said, that was only two wheel due to dyno restrictions. but thats still at the wheels, through the DSG ;)...

    12. hmm, what kind of power are you pushing? Zevions...

      hmm, what kind of power are you pushing? Zevions car was making 600+ whp, and 500+trq with a UM tune, and dont know of many that made more.

      that torque number is based on what the TCM sees as an internal limit, and where it comes in and overrides throttle control from the ECM. so i would assume thats based at the flywheel, or BHP versus...
