How is power delivery? Does it come on too fast? It seems a turbo of any decent size would hit right when your coming our of the apex of a corner and make the car a handful.

It can yes, but it's smooth and I've done auto-x with a turbo before. Comes on starting around 2700, and was very controllable last time. If the new engine makes it too much I can always turn it down.

Had my first auto-x with the new motor! Took my boss for a ride (trying to get my coworkers interested to get some more participation).

Just finished replacing the throttle cable and all bushings as well as brake spring bushing. Easy replacement and wish I did it a long time ago.

Weird, it works for me. Does it not work for others?

Haha, yeah I came into that a little too quick (story of my life) and without power steering I couldn't turn the wheel fast enough! O well! That was the only cone I hit on that run atleast. I had one run where I got on the throttle on a straight and the back end stepped out slightly and took 4 cones with the back driver side tire.
