i'd like to check it out, but just thought i'd throw this up for all the haters that said this isn't doable. apparently it's doable enough to run auto-x, which doesn't say much i guess but whatever, enjoy.

i gotta meet this kid and check it out.

Sweet. Of course it's possible. You can turbo anything with a standalone and proper engine internals and fuel mods.

If you could, find out what he uses for engine management, what turbo and how much psi. Thanks for posting that!

It was either that guy or the previous owner of that car that built it (not sure if he ended up selling it). He posted a thread about his build with pics and stuff but that was a while back, I'll try to dig it up. It's pretty cool but one thing that really stood out is how low the turbo and oil line sit to the ground. If you hit anything and rip it off, your turbo and motor are pretty much done for.

he is on audiworld, I think he claimed 235whp without a real tune. I wouldn't want a turbo close to the ground imagine a nice hot turbo when it is raining. also his intake is right their too you would think it would get soaked when it is in the rain.

He's running the stock engine mgmt. He has no way of retarding the timing.

I'm sure some type of sheild can be made from stainless to inclose the turbo and intake, to avoid water soaking it.
