I emailed Insightgt this morning for the 411 about his setup. Hopefully, he'll reply with the info. It looks damn clean, but how well does it work? Speaking of custom turbos, what's the status on Xanatos's setup?

I know alittle bit about it. All in all it cost him 8 grand with tunning done custom by KIWI perfomance. The car runs at 7 psi apox 230 to the wheel on stock internals, turbo kicks in at 2500rpms. I talked to him at the Maxium showoff in San Diego 3 weeks ago and then saw him on my way home to Anaheim on the 5 freeway. That car is super quick passed me at 120 smoking a turbo eclipse on the 5. We follow each other all the way home, him smoking me, letting catch up and then he would somke me again. He told me that he smokes about everthing on the steets 5.0 mutangs other GTS owners that toe up with him etc. lates

Hey Larry. Now that I know the guys on this board... I think he's the one that posted about it after he had it done but hadn't tuned it yet.

In any event we need the stats on it. Maybe if we get enough GTs interested the shop will mass produce some kits for us. But T3/T4 turbos are better. So hopefully that's what he's running.

When insightGT first installed it when it wasnt tuned he told us that Kiwi performance is a small shop (one guy) and said he could not do one in mass production. It was a one time custom deal sorry guys.

Any idea where Kiwi Performance is? I'd really love to know!

Thanks

Probably because one person can't work miracles, and if you missed the post 4B said that Kiwi performance consisted of one guy who worked on the turbo. A one guy shop sounds kinda strange to me, but I guess it's possible.
