    Greddy TD05 18G bold on turbo kit for FR-S

    http://www.importtuner.com/tech/1307...ner_turbo_kit/

    I did not know that the boxer motor in the FRS/BRZ/86 was both DI and PI. it has 4 DI injectors and 4 PI injectors. It has 12.5:1 stock compression ratio. That's pretty high. They've ran this kit at 7psi and gained 100HP. With the 8 injectors I wonder how easy it would be to run e85? You put this kit on and convert to e85 with the 8 injectors and this little thing might be pretty quick. I know someone hit 400HP on a different kit. I'll have to see what fuel they were using.

    I had no idea either. Is there any other production motor like that?

    Pretty freaking cool though especially considering it should alleviate fuel system upgrade issues.

    another cool thing I've been reading about is the GM flex fuel turbo cars AKA Buick Regal GS turbo. Stock flex fuel system with flex fuel sensor. Meaning you can tune for e85 on existing hardware. nice. i've only read one article though and the market doesn't have a lot of tuning support yet. I'm betting that might be a sleeper platform though.

    Well Buick can just fit under GMboost.com I guess? Not sure if a dedicated Buick site is necessary I figured Buick would be dead by now .

    Buick will soon alienate any form of younger crowd they have left after they release a FWD Grand National. Then it will only be old people buying Buicks again. The GS was a decent step in the right direction with the younger crowd but it's still FWD. And to release a FWD car and call it a Grand National is just blasphemy.

    Do they have any turbo rear wheel drive performance cars?

    well, maybe there's hope yet

    "To put an end to the long, dull interlude that followed that era, Buick is resuscitating its two revered nameplates. The 2015 Grand National and GNX sedans will ride on GM's new rear-drive Alpha platform, which was introduced with the Cadillac ATS and is earmarked for the sixth-generation Camaro and the third-generation Cadillac CTS.

    Like the ATS, Buick's GN will offer the choice of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four (currently rated at 272 horsepower) or a 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 321 horses in the ATS. The wicked GNX, available only in the official shade of evil (black), will be powered by a twin-turbo ­3.6-liter V-6 that should be good for 400 horsepower. The transmission roster will include manuals for the turbo engines and automatics across the board. The eight-speed Hydra-Matic due in 2014 should serve nicely here."

    Not quite the corvette killer the name "Grand National" is associated with but better than the status quo. Once again saving money by sharing engines though. The old Grand National was a pioneer, not a copy cat engine sharer.

    This may be enough justification for buickboost.com right here.

    I have contemplated a BRZ with Innovate Motorsports twin-screw supercharger kit for a track car. Not sure I would want a laggy turbo on the track.

    That might be a pretty sweet track setup.

    I'm just wondering if investing my time in building a Buick forum is worth it or not.
