Within a couple of months I was hunting around for something with a lot more top end capability. Fortunately, I had gone with the UTEC so I had some flexibility with the turbo. Still, I wished I had gone with a 18 or 20G from the beginning.
    WiI believe the Cobb Street Tuner would be a better choice.

    I don't understand why people go this way.. You could pick up a utec for $900.00 with Remote Switch and program it yourself or buy a AP for $600.00+ and ST for $400.00 and program it.. You save $100.00 with the utec plus a hell of alot more resouces to get help from..

    I guess to each his own but I went utec way myself.

    BTW to the OP nice kill. But like others have said, watch you back cause after the launch you are going to see that SRT-4 running up on you hard..

    Yeah, I shut it down at 65 MPH and he flew by. I'm a power hungry beast. I need a bigger turbo. I think I may go with a UTEC.

    You shut down at 65mph and you call the SRT-4 lame . It's nice to keep things safe but like others have said, respect that car because with a better driver and at speeds above 60mph, you would have been owned easily.

    I wouldn't say owned but yeah the SRT-4 would have crawed it's way up on him and to 100+ would have 1 to 2 cars on him.. It's not like he's running a Geo Metro..

    You shut it down because he was at your rear bumper at 65 mph. Of course you will need a larger turbo to produce better top end. I don't understand why you think you beat the srt? A race to 65 mph is not a race.

    you dont have to race to 100 everytime you race sounds kinda crazy to me, its one thing if you race to 65 and say if we went longer and admit hed win. but if everytime you race or play around with a car and hit 100 especially when your racing in a 45 zone...i dunno if imin a 45 ill hit 100 occasionally if the race is pretty even. i save most of the 100+ racing for the highway
