What is it? Super 60 T3?  Dont worry though, vendors are flawless and know
all though:)  They have been around and are well respected, so dont
question them....

Man, thats cool!  Its like a 5grand kit, and the VR6 already has lots of
power, but jus goes to show what a turbo can do..Those kits come with a
friggin T4....
Im tryin to get my freind with the rabbit truck to put a bigger motor
in(1.8, he has a 1.7), and use a compressor from a turbo 2.3, and I think
that thing will rock hard.  It will spin the tires the whole 1/8th mile
now, and I am really tryin to get him to get some slicks..
with traction, it should run a low 14 atleast now, becasue its at
14.99@93, but not gettin wot until 3rd gear!  Callaway was rite, there is
no substitute for positive manifold pressure!
