Yep, my summer ride is an MR2 Turbo with about 290 RWHP at the moment (still tuning the AEM and then it's time for a bigger turbo, running a disco potato right now)... And yeah boost is addictive. Going to auto-x the car I think this summer. Gotta keep busy while I wait for the snow to fly again.

Nice! I'm going to check up on the rules of auto-x for this summer and see if I can take fozzy out for a spin. I'm hoping I'll stop being lazy by the time the snow is done melting and I can get lowering springs put in along with the front sway and get a stage 1 tune from Airboy.

Just traded in my '08 G35x for an '11 Ford Edge Limited.

LOVE IT. The technology is amazing, the ride is pretty smooth, comfortable cabin, handling and pickup obviously not as good but all in all so happy with the choice. Drove up with the wife and baby to NH from NYC last weekend and had more than enough room with the stroller, bassinet, board, luggage etc. Tons of legroom in the back as well. You really get a great bang for your buck with the Edge.

You in calgary? I watched a few of the auto-x races this year at the Deerfoot mall parking lot, got chatting with a few of the guys. I think I'm going to run a few races next year just for the fun of it. Unfortunately my car will be severely outclassed. Other than internals nothing is stock on the car so I'll probably be competing with Lotus Elise's, Vettes, Porsche 911s etc.

I put some ohlins struts with kg/mm springs in last year, they're a little too low for the street though, not really feelin it! Who's airboy? ROM tune? I got lucky, the car came with a full AEM standalone when I bought it. Spent a few hours on the dyno back on Ontario to get the WOT tune done (made 288 RWHP and 275 or so lb-ft torque at 18.5 psi of boost). Spent a while fine tuning the mid range but still a long way to go, it's driveable but I need to iron out the peaks still.

I just think it'd be a blast ripping around in the parking lot!
