Displacement is fun. Big turbos are fun. AWD is fun.
Displacement + big turbo + AWD = FUN.

There were no mechanical issues with this car at all, which is always welcome.
Considering the size of the turbo, boost came on at a very reasonable RPM… thanks in part to a device that makes the turbine inlet smaller at low boost levels. Once the turbo was spooled, the boost level was controlled *perfectly* by the Blitz EBC. As the boost was turned up, the car responded very well and power levels continued to rise. Minimal changes in fueling were needed for the additional airflow, thanks in part to the boost compensation mapping in the AEM EMS.
