The acceleration from 3600 to 7000 in second and third gear is so rapid i cant effectively look at the tach, boost, O2 and back to the tach again before it is time to shift. It winds 4th gear out like it did 3rd normally aspirated. I love the rumble and moan of the zork right now and if I don't get many complaints I think I'll keep running it this way. So far only smiles and thumbs up from other drivers and pedestrians. My one real problem I have now encountered is the slippery slope of wanting more. I can't seem to get my mind off of the thought.
EXACTLY
You are now insane!
but in a good way

I was a defender of unmodded cars and turned my nose up at you revheads for drifting away from the factory design..

But if it makes it go faster and harder by the ingenuity of the owner im sure it makes Mr Ferry's smile
