I decided to stay with the c3 for a few reasons. First, switching over is a pain in the @$$. With installing all kinds of stuff, blah blah blah. Not to mention it would set me back another few g's I don't have. My second reason. Burn outs. Nuff said. My third reason is I don't like the lag that human error can create on the strip. I prefer my shifting timed perfect and precise. every time.
The turbo is the last thing being done to the build. It will be back running the stock 4 cyl. Auto 3spd. Until I can have certain things done to the other tranny, bottom, and new head. So that it can withstand the power.
Currently- 1986 2.3L lx notchback, conversion to SVO 2.3L turbo automatic notchback.
