Wow. all that thing needs now is a syncro conversion. Nice car and well worth 12k!

why slow it down?
and why do all these nice turbo'd VRs have to be out west

actually, the guy i bought the car from was in Philly, and I drove it back.
As long as you stay out of boost, it actually gets pretty decent gas mileage, around high 20's mpg i would guess. Having the self-control to stay out of boost is the problem.
It's pretty easy to cruise it out of boost though with the 6spd tranny.

im curious at what kind of engine management ?

stock ecu with a custom tune from atwood at c2. that's why it's really well-mannered for the power level. every now and then you'll get an idle hunt when coming to a stop from high rpm, but for the most part it idles smooth and is very driveable.
