A question for Craig 930.....

You are one of the few people I've seen who have made the transition from a 3.6 conversion to a Turbo. I have recently made that same transition.

The Turbo is a very exciting car to drive but at the track I miss the torquey cornering ability of my 3.6.....

Have the mods you've incorporated successfully increased your low end torque......????

Sorry, I didn't see this post until now -

I do miss the immediate response and ability to correct in mid-corner...but Torque?
Are yew kiddin me?

Above 3,000 I have so much torque that wheelspin even with Kumho V710 track tires is an issue. Something like 240 lb ft vs 413 at the wheels

Hey, let's work on your car so you don't think that you are missing anything - seriously!

Well....there's my first clue....you are picking up torque much quicker whereas I feel 'stuck' going into a turn after scrubbing off speed, compared to the 3.6......

You're on! The Turbo is a vastly superior car all around. Like riding on rails compared to the SC....
