 I gotcha on what your saying, and I'm not offended at all but I think a lot 
of people are looking for more and they donn't know it so I'm just trying to 
save some of the people that are reading your posts from being like I was and 
going through 5 turbo's before I found the one that spooled up fairly quick and 
had plenty of power through the rev range. I regret not ever getting the car 
on the dyno but the S2 coupe will be running pretty much the same setup as my 
s4 was so I'll make sure I get it on the dyno for some true testing. Other 
than what my car could pull on some big straights I don't have any hard HP #'s. 
In a straight line it out ran a chipped RS6, 993tt porsche, ZO6 vette, and some 
other high HP modded cars so I just figured it was making good power.
