intercooler?  dont forget little inconsequential things like that?
I also think we should stick to RWHP #'s here....I'm tired of people using
the 20% rule on a car whether it has a stick or automatic, 9" 8.8" or 7.5"
rear, etc.  20% is more of a automatic equipped car  with a 9"
rear...noway in hell a T9 or t5 drags as much as a C4.
so please, jus say the rwhp, along with tranny and and rear(if diffrent).

I'm sure what would really mean something is the good old change only the
cam before/after numbers.  I for one beleive that if you spend the same
money with a stock car that has a decnet intercooler, you could make as
more power in the turbo than with a cam....
