_Great_ idea, MIke. :-) I like your way of thinking here. I think Bob
Dupree would too.

I could see that. A small turbo will do wonders for low end, but I
suspect that even a big turbo can be made to perform better than the
standard issue K26. Scott Justusson gave me a ride in an RS2 (or
something like that) equipped 5KCSTQ once that had seriouas boost way
before 3000 rpm.
I also found on my own car that by optimizing intake airflow and exhaust
flow post-turbo, I could get over 10psi by 2000 rpm in 1st gear. I was
at full boost long before 3000 rpm. That was with a stock K26 turbo.
