:( ......oh boy! Well I have one serious piece of advice for you so you don't have another excuse for losing to everything out there except for a Prius.

You best put some weight up front to help keep from wheelieing all the time. Unless your planning on stretching it out to 90"...... :banghead:

Then again your doing this for attention so it probably doesn't matter..... enjoy yourself

Why is that? I've seen every name brand turbo shit the bed in less than a mile so what's the difference?
People believe if you buy name brand stuff for 10000 dollars that it will outlast the no name 1000 dollar stuff. Even though it's built using the same processes, material, and patents in most case. Hell some of the no name stuff is even made by the same big name companies.

Thinking ebay turbos might be a good idea with careful research, especialy after my turbonetics took a shit with in 5 street miles. Im thinking ebay turbo for the raptor.
