    calvin: sweet. i really like that setup.

    frankie p: airjockie's homemade turbo setup is amazing. everything is pieced out, nothing is stock honda on his. its reliable even with hardly any tuning, due to the simplicity of those engines.

    any boost setup can be reliable if corners aren't cut. there are tons of daily driven mirages on boost, just not in the US since they weren't sold under the name "lancer", and i dont mean the EVO. improper equipment and driver greediness can lead to a blown engine. :lol:
