Wow! Thank you for the great response to my questions. I would just like to say yes Auto Trans may be better but nothing is more fun then a 6-speed and I am not too concerned with drag racing, its just for fun. Autox would just be a fun thing but yes I considered roadracing although I havent looked into it very much.

haha this is great, It took my honda every part upgraded to get even close to those hp levels. Im sorry but I dont know what a BCC is. But let's say I wanted 500rwhp then I could just use those upgrades and add a single turbo conversion? or would I need more internal / fuel upgrades.

how does a clamp control boost levels?

Damage over time is guaranteed if you repeatedly run high boost on pump gas...
XD I know not my first turbo car, but about how high can you boost it with 91?

and thanks again for the great response
