Re: turbo?

Is there a point to a turbo on any car? Oh, wait, yes there is; it's to make more power.

There are some pretty fast auto's out there.. some pro's and con's you should look into tho.. IMO i'd go for a 5spd.. dont just go turbo cuz "you love the sound" lol tons of things to consider, cuz its a good amount of work.. im in the early phases of that now..

Re: turbo?

If tuned right, you can have an Auto be consistent as hell? But the 5spd would be ten times more fun.
