    you don't, shouldn't, and it will only make your car slower.

    Thanks for the tip... any idea what there is I can do to this engine to make it run a little quicker? It already has the basics,header, full catback and cold air intake... im really not wanting to get into the guts of it basically bolt on mode for now. I plan to try to build up an H22 later

    just save for the h-swap. dumping anything into the d just puts your further away from the h.

    That's what I thought too... to turbo an H should I build the bottom end or will the stock parts do ok? What needs to be done to turbo and have a nice dependable daily driver. Thanks for your input dude I appreciate it

    If you're going to build the bottom end, you have to sleeve due to the FRM sleeves. So, either stay stock and go modest, or be prepared to dump 10+k on a full build to go big (and that's not counting the turbo kit/items)

    I usually try just pushing the gas pedal as hard as possible. I've estimated that to be good for at least 12.7 hp.

    Do you frequently do top speed runs on a track? If not, then I don't know why you'd need to be going 127 mph on a consistent basis, or why you'd want to be be traveling at speeds faster than that...
