Ive been boosting hard for over 2 years , close to a dozen 1500 km trips to and from Alberta to Saskatchewan and back to BC , only major issue i had was a slightly clogged injector from bad batch of shell 91 and a broken axle at the track , depends on how you drive it , how well you maintain it , and how well its TUNED . i raced my car all weekend in hot weather at ashcroft then left to alberta drove all night till 7am with not one issue . Shit my car runs better now then it did when it was stock and gets better fuel mileage even with the turbo as long as i stay out of boost of course . Sure my car isnt a RACE CAR but it certainly could be with a cage welded in . Id still rock the heated leather while im at it

tommy does the new owner plan on caging it and racing it?

Guys this is getting off topic... And no he is not caging it, he'll only drag race it a few times i'm sure but ya. He just wanted a fast car so I supplied him with one.

With a true daily driver no matter how good your setup is it simply won't last. With that kind of power on tap, you can't help but get on it once in a while. Come talk to us in another 5 and tell me you did'nt have to do any work to it.

Tom's car is sold, thread should be Closed. Congrats on the sale Tom.
