what made it 35 whp over stock? Just curious. That is damn impressive. Can you go turbo and still get 45-50mpg on the highway

Yeah... An evo in SCC's competition a few years ago made 40mpg or more, with a 2L motor making like 450-500hp. The key was having a big enough turbo to stay out of boost and tuning for fuel mileage out of boost.

The sad part about it was APR's Evo I think (widebody yadda yadda looked fast but sucked) placed significantly worse in the competition, made less power, and had half the mileage.

that whole thing is a crock of ----.
They also said brad's MR2 widebody, supercharged 3.0L 1mz-fe v6 with the trd supercharger at 9psi, and a 125 shot of the juice would get over 40mpg, when it admittantly bearly get's 25 on the highway.



SCC is ------- retarded.

Right, staying out of boost with a large enough turbo to boost mileage is complete bullshit.
