Turbo charging the RS 2.5 liter is bad I hear, can't hold boost as well as the STi 2.5s or something.

You can reliably boost a stock EJ251, but it's pretty limited as far as how much you can get out of it. But with just an STi/FXT/LGT block swap, the ceiling for the motor goes way up. And either way, it's all about engine management and knowing when to say when.

Well, part of it is simply that it's a N/A motor, so the compression is too high to handle a lot of boost. Also, the RS's 2.5 is an open deck, so it's not as strong as the STI's semi-closed deck.

And there you have it.

There's no way I'd turbo this block. I'd much rather swap it and have factory turbo car reliability. I still need to drive that bitch to work too!

Don't bitch about being the slowest. . . I've got an extra 500lbs on you and zero power mods.

True, true, but I said I'm ALMOST ALWAYS the slowest car on the lot

And I don't wanna hear any bitching about "but i live in Dayton..."

Well no more complaints about no turbo for you then you don't have a turbo, becuase you don't want to boost on your current block

[music]It's my gas budget, and I'll bitch if I wanna. . .[/music]

I missed last night's due to work. I needed tuesday off for oil change, harness install, and my wife's monthly "pregnant lady" checkup, and of course saturday for autox. Nothing left for SECCS. Stupid retail. Can I bitch about that?

I'm game. I like the slick track... I think it is Kevin or maybe Scott that will gripe about the cars, but who cares.

Scott is always a safe bet for griping. I think he has trouble driving the karts with his knees behind his head.
