RE: Grand River Ohio?
ITs obvious to me just how much of rude person you really are. I state some facts from an expert and you just have to be rude about it . I reserved any comments about you from all the BS I have read from you until now. As far as I am concerned, and a few others I might add, build your little turbo kit, tune and and THEN come back to us and tell us how foolish we all are. I dont have the numbers on just how many SC'd 2.5 there are, I do know of one, and his is reliable, yes, but all other "boosted" contours and cougars I have heard of havent been as lucky. As for your little analogy to an H22 motor, well, its a Honda, there is aftermarket out the ass for it and you can build monsterous NA horsepower from it. The big difference is that those motors are not a POS from the factory. They dont starve themselves for oil if driven hard through a right hand corner at high speed. The major difference between an H22 motor and our "wonderful" duratech is the fact the if you want 300 HP you dont have to completely gut the motor and basically start from anew. Honda, you throw a set of pistons at it, a header, and a few other less costly parts and you can make 300hp reliably. Just ask James what it takes financially to build high horsepower numbers that will be reliable.
Back to my issue with you. Ever since you started this talk of your turbo kit, it has been just that, TALK. Put up some numbers, some dyno plots, some INSTALL pics, not some pics of a turbo and a few pipes. When/If I ever see this kit, I will eat my words. I hope for our sake (cougar owners in general) that you arent full of BS. But until the time when you actually show up at a meet, or at cougarfest, or post some REAL proof of these accomplishments, I will call BS.
One final thing, I showed nothing but respect and courtesy towards you at first, just stating facts as they have been presented to me and you feel the need to be rude about things.
