Not sure why your attacing Gretch, pretty stupid especially when he has provided times.
As for me, what I want is a highway pull car, or a beast on a roll, dont care for launches at the track but thats me personally, and you can build a Turbo 6 to go fast at the track too. Theres just alot of stuff to sort through before we hit that point and without these guys here jumping into the FI world, well never get there

ya, im with you TJ, I love hitting it off a roll rather than just smokin the tires from a stop. The car is a beast on the highway and off a roll.

Get the .81ar housing, you may lose some lowend but highway driving will never be the same! Just installed a couple days ago.

It will also help keep the charge temps down for extended runs under boost. May not be much, but everything helps.

How much does that cost? and wow, just read the whole thing and it seems like all this hulk guy wants to do is attack people when he hasnt done anything in the first place. People like that just need to stay off of forums that are doing fine. If all he wanted to do was critique when he has done nothig to show for, he just needs to stay away. He seems like a pretty immature guy with his "meows", and "panties in a bunch" comments when all Gretchen was trying to do was give him the info he asked for and be helpful but he chose to attack. Hulk if you wanna act like a bitch go elsewhere.

This is very true, car runs much smoother now. I did many back to back runs from 60-110 and the .81ar pulls were more consistent than the .68ar (results if interested, 60-110 three times back to back in DRIVE: .68ar 59F: 8 seconds, 10 seconds, 12.5 seconds, .81ar 85F: 5.5 seconds, 8 seconds, 6 seconds). Also gas mileage went up about 2-3mpg and car has about 1.5 hg more vacuum at idle. Lastly a little quieter than the .68ar. I still keep the .68ar for if I ever want to go into drift events or play around on the streets. Dobbins, you have the 60-1 so the spool shouldn't be affected as much, with the 67mm ive lost about 600rpms of spool in every gear. Call STS for price of the .81ar housing for your brand turbo. I paid 220 direct from Precision. If you know the trim of your p trim wheel you can order from horsepower freaks for probably cheaper than sts.

My attitude is just ignore those who try to get a rise out of you for their own entertainment. As far as the cost of upgrading the LS/LT models compared to upgrading an SS, the costs can pretty much be the same. It just comes down to what you want and what you can afford. Originally I was going to wait till December of 2010 to buy a 2SS/RS but decided financially it would make more sense to get a 2LT/RS and it's been a lot of fun learning how to make it faster. Even the SS guys in the club can't wait to see how fast my car will go now with the upgrades installed. Now later down the road I can see myself purchasing a V8 car/truck but this car will always have a special place with me.

Wow that sounds like a huge difference. Is that something that would need to be tuned again or do they just replace it? Is it something you could do yourself very easily?

Thanks nytemare, If you want to get thrown back in the seat even harder you need to ride in it with the .68ar rebuilt precision and better sized intercooler, power and torque feels instant like a roots blower. Heres a video spinning the tires from a 40mph roll with my old setup:
http://youtu.be/JGdajRjLy5w (need too enable sound to hear tires spinning)

Rican!, with the .81ar heres a rough estimate of when I hit full boost (6.5 psi) at full throttle in manual mode: 1st 4500-6000, 2nd 4000-4500, 3rd 3800-4300, 4th 3500-4000, 5th 3000-3500, 6th 2500-3000 (.68ar subtract 600rpm from each range for most of the gears). You can feel the lag difference the most in first gear from a stop or low rpm, the other gears from a roll you can hardly notice at full throttle. Part throttle lag is more appearent though but not too much. I think its safer not to have too much boost at part throttle because with my old housing sometimes when i dont pay attention my boost spikes to like 4 or 5psi at part throttle and my afr is like 13-15 since the throttle position is not in the rich area not good!!

lol I have tons of videos, about 50 to be exact since last June lol, most of them showing the speedo and rpm guage as I do a pull to test and compare changes in different mods that I make. I need to make a build/journal page highlighting everything I've done with dyno graph and track slips to boot. I have one highway video that I took driving in another car while someone else drove my car. Most race videos there is not enough time to pull out cam or opponent sees the light from my cam and then don't run.
