      Let me know when you want to go! I'm always in for a ride.

      I'm so impressed by this turbo. It does t have a violent torque spike like other "big" turbos and it's not uncontrollable. It just pulls and pulls.

      I bet. I'm sure after not driving it for a while it will feel even faster when you get it back. One cool thing I just found out is APR added a "hard rev-limiter" to newer tunes (I believe sometime around June/July). My stage 2 didn't have this, and I have to say it sounds SICK!
