Supra-Celica.. yeah, I wasn't talking to you, either way you totally misread my tone and flew off the handle, which, being an adult (wife, son, job, house, pickett fence, 2 cars, dog, much more to life than battling it out on a board over a mistake you made), I decided not to respond to your post... I am pretty cool headed (I attribute it to 25 years of martial arts and buddhism). In general, in the future, please assume I am just sharing info not "giving you my shit".
I don't like it when someone posts incorrect info as if it's an educated fact, like a trial header causing a loss, I know a few guys who have the trial header, and they all like it a lot, it's a quality header and the only GTS header with no loss anywhere in the powerband in Dyno. This board can find it's way into product bashing from all the guys who bought something else. It just getts old. ALL other available headers other than the Trial post some losses at certain RPMs along with their gains, which is why trial is having trouble making them fast enough, they bumbed up production and may have ended up with a fitment issue (although this post is the only place I found anything about that). Same thing happened to hotshot though, so I wouldn't be surprised. None of the guys here in Vancouver had any trouble with theirs fitting though.
About the turbo "fantasy".. not sure if I would call it a fantasy, looks like there will be 2 available GT turbo kits by the end of the summer, the most promising is the Dave Draper turbo IMO, which he has Injen
doing all the piping for, and starts with the Audi A4 1.8t turbo, since the Audi 1.8 liter engine has almost identical specs to the GT VVT-i (with a turbo on it of course), it's a perfect turbo for our cars. His turbo goes on sale next month. They are in mass production now. [ 05-10-2003, 10:38 PM: Message edited by: FX-MAN ]
