Its a 300 hp car. . . .Instead of more power, more power and more power. . . .why dont you go with less weight, less weight, less weight !! If its a weekend / track car, then you can easily get away with fiberglass (or more expensive carbonfiber) bonnet, fenders, doors, remove interior, etc... and you can always easily return to original if the time comes to sell as original.
Add the usual intercooler and exhaust upgrade to help with the inherant turbo lag, and adjustable warm up regulator for some fuel adjustability and cure some problems that CIS has (mid-rage being fat and top end leanning out) and you will have yourself one fun weekend car that will hold its own at the track. Lighter weight means no big brake upgrade or fat tires to hold the twisties. Higher boost = more heat and heat kills these engines! Just my 2cents
theres nothing like the rear end squatdown of a turbo
