I have a different turbo project for going fast this car is purely an all season and weather driver. With that in mind it makes me just think to suck it up and put fuel in it and don't have it as a project but I can't help it!

Nobody would believe that you have one because you never drive it. I think I saw you in it twice this year, although once was at the track, which is one more time that I was on the track, so

Anyways, back to the thread.

Scotty.......Scott...bro.

You finally accepted me as a friend on facebook, if you added me in the spring I would have been excited because it's an honour to be your friend on facebook, I would have called you more often to hang out and then you would have seen how many times I really drove my car. Expect a phone call in the spring.
And I won't f uck with you either.

Regards,

Dave

haha. I saw it a number of times because Dave is the only one (other than myself) that would consistently come out to the KW meets (as long as 2 cars is considered a meet). He was also out on the first midnight cruise.

lol back to the thread.

I found that the D'Sylva chip seemed to give more responsiveness, and more torque lower down. Some claim better fuel economy too (I could never tell, as my foot was too often mashed into the floor, in the 3 M20 E30's I had - including an IX Touring)

John will always have a place in my heart. No homo.

I must agree 100%, the Mark D chip added a welcome amount of power increase. The car revs quicker, is lighter on it's feet, and yeah, an incredible amount of fuel mileage increase. Prior to chip I was getting 9L/100km average with a best of about 8L/100km, now I average 7.5L/100km with a best of 6.9L/100km. Most of my driving is hwy, keep that in mind as I know these are astounding Numbers for an M20 but I have many friends on this board who have witnessed this performance first hand!

No it won't... Just plan a proper sized turbo. Other wise you might as well just take the money and put it in the toilet (you you can give it to me ).

A proper setup turbo kit will give great response without killing the top end.
