Think about Turboing my GTS but one concern
For those of you who have or may know if i were to turbo my GTS would it actually be affective or would it have a lot more power that it would just make the tires spin?

You cannot compare the power of a turboed celi to a stock! Its just not the same car anymore.

Just turbo it, buy stickier tires, and work on launching.

you shouldn't have a problem if you've got good tires. Get it if you've got the spare 3-5k laying around plus labor to get a turbo put on your car.

Kinda a weird question.. THe best answer is... Engine gives power to wheels more power to the engine more power to the wheels... Doesn't that kinda make sence????

Damn boy you got lots to learn. This is why your here correct? Lets help the guy? well if you wanna make the tires spin you gotta rev and slip the clutch a bit if im not mistakend to get it going.

a stock gt can spin the tires if you do it right. the gts doesn't have the same low-end torque, though, which is what actually causes the tires to break free and spin ir slip. it shouldn't be a problem if you launch correctly, or for daily driving, you won't/shouldn't have any problems.

a gts torque peaks higher, the gt lower, more for daily driving. however, i know you know your stuff, Lucky, so if you could elaborate, then i'll trust your info.
