MX3 Turbo V6 - 12.9@112. Base Map 8psi untuned
This is the slowest possible setup for the car. Street tires at full
pressure, full interior, big toolbag in the back, Boost controller off, untuned, pump gas.
8.545 1/8 @ 87.41
12.968 1/4 @ 112.21

Toastie's 1993 MX-6 V6 Turbo (funny / technical)
my MX-6 V6 turbo setup, ghetto rig, but

140,000 on the motor when turbo'd. That
car put up with a lot of abuse. Motor and turbo are still good but I junked the car.
Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
