3076, you can still make good power 400+ whp depending on your fuel and tuner.

It is actually not bad at all. I don't know why people say DD'ing a large turbo sucks, it's just as smooth as my old turbo. It's not like I'm in boost every time I drive it.

Not slighting matts car one bit. It love it! But I personally like something a little.more instant but damn that thing made me laugh and smile when he took me for a ride! Maybe if I drove it next time he can change my mind
It does take a little time for it to spool, but like you said once it does it makes up for it. It just keeps pulling and pulling.

I've driven 30r cars and 35r, hell even a 37r and they are all just as equal and all easily DD'able.

Probably not. This car will remain a DD as a project car enters the picture later on.

I would hate to have to downshift every time I need to accelerate and pass someone while cruising at 50. Or have to downshift to go up hills.

So put good forged internals in. There's a noticeable difference in my 5th gear acceleration, even without a tune.

Yeah my sti had an fp green that didnt spool till 3200ish, the 2.5 is torquey enough to still drive normally with out ever getting itno boost. the AVCS helps too.

i could easily deal with big turbos i think its easier than driving the 335i which makes boosst @ 1500ish.

How was that FP green? That's what I'm dropping into the STI
