    Well when I traded my sol with a fucked up front end for one UGLY ass hatch that handeled like ass, I was able to make the car handle pretty respectablly, brake pretty good, and after a cheap paint job, I got it to look like more then a $50 car. Well the new owner of my sol has been hard at work too....

    yep. WG spring sets LOWEST psi.
    boost controlelrs go up to about double the spring pressure before the wg just can't control it.

    Wow. Looks like he does it at a fairly low RPM too compared to other boosted B16s. I wonder what kind of numbers he could have put down with a GT -R series turbo.

    Jack, this summer (july maybe?) I traded him my shell (which had a crunched front raditor support and a salvage title) for his EG which just had a shit load of miles and a flat black paint job. I needed more room so now I have a hatch. I have the same engine, seats, suspension and brakes that I had in my del sol. Pretty much my old sol with a hatch body.
