Thats a damn fast beetle and you kept right with him for the most part. Now, if you and your buddy switched rides...

Two things wrong with this video; you had to lug around the extra weight of a passenger, too many long stretches on the track which allowed the Porsche to make proper use its power.

Wow, did that cost a lot to do? I need more power out of my 1.8 and been planning a turbo but would love to keep it naturally aspirated if I can get good power for a good price

Hmmmm. Ok thanks guys. I think I'm gonna go with a fm turbo that will bring me up to about 175 who for about 2k. It just seems more cost efficient. I just have one last question. Do I have to use a turbo muffler because I really want to get this https://www.flyinmiata.com/1990-97-flyin-miata-stainless-steel-exhaust.html and I won't be able to get the turbo for a while. I also don't wan to waste $450 on a muffler that I will have to take off one I get the turbo. Thanks.
