Good luck when you can manage the time to see what she does.
I mean no disrespect, but that just sounds a little silly to me.

Now you don't know me from a hole in the wall, so my opinion really should mean anything to you.

I was no slouch with my FBO+meth ... 11.538@118.673MPH.

The single turbo is much faster than my FBO+meth setup. Now I don't just say that to make myself feel better about what I spent on the upgrade.

I'll eventually take the time to go run the car again.

I wouldn't confuse the single turbo upgrade between the different transmission types (6MT vs. 6AT). The 6MT guys are doing more than just fine - with their extra revs and a real transmission - they guys are making 100+ WHP.

The 6AT crowd (single, RB, ASR, Vargas ... possibly even the stock turbo+FBO+100% E85 guys) are going to need to address the inherent challenges of the slushbox.
