    In my little brain, logic doesn't dictate 4 small cylinders making more power than my large, nasty 8... seems like i have a lot to learn!!
    Talk to Sarge def if your in the Dallas Area!!! Hes going to tell you to bring it to Nelson Performance. One of the top shops in the country IMO

    Not sure. They have a website. It may tell you there. Most likely for a N20 tune would be around $450-500ish maybe. Just a guess.

    EDIT: Went on the site and it doesnt really say. They have a number you could contact them with. Im pretty sure they do tuning but it doesnt really say on the site. I could have sworn a few people have told me to take my GTO to them(Just too far of a drive)

    Well these little 4 cylinders are making up for the lack of displacement with forced induction. Read alot, learn alot about your car, learn to do stuff yourself, then when you're comfortable with all that go get yourself a nitrous shot (after full bolt ons of course). A 125-150 dry shot is the answer to all your problems.

    Many folks will tell you to throw the juice at it at 3000 rpm (or perhaps earlier), however my tuner preferred to be much more conservative -- I start at 3,400 rpm at 75% of a 100 rwhp shot and ramp it up to a full 100% at 4,000 rpm. I keep spraying until I'm about 200 rpm off of my shift point.

    That 100 - 150 shot should really change your results quite favorably. Even if he has ported the stock turbo or replaced the stock turbo with an upgraded turbo, he's going to have to learn to drive it. Traction will be a serious issue for him unless he's a great driver with an upgraded suspension setup.

    Even then his FWD is going to fail him at some point, regardless of driving. Unless he's bringing some large drag radials or slicks, an upgraded turbo SRT-4 should be no problem for a nitroused A4 F-body from a dig. Watch out for the RWD turbo ricers, they can pack a punch.... like mine.

    The gameboy was the piggy back. It's how he controls the fuel.
    I like people are starting to see what a contender the SRT-4 is. They are amazing cars. I used to have one.

    I've been saying this all along, but people on here are to damn closed minded. At least there not ricers...(of course could EASILY be turned to rice) I personally like the PT Cruiser GT verts with the High Output turbo better. I think they can be made to look a hell of a lot better than the SRT4, yet there virtually identical.

    IMO the PT is a terrible looking car. I would much rather have a SRT4 neon

    I like the Caliber SRT 4 the best over the Neon and PT Cruiser. Mainly because I have one.

    I'm with hutch. Definitely would take an SRT-4 Neon over both the PT and Caliber any day.

    Only reason I'd take a PT over the Caliber or Neon is because you can't get one in a vert. The standard PT is ugly as shit, but the vert doesn't look to bad. Its only 2 door, low roof line, etc.

    One of the ugliest cars on the road IMO. Right up there with the Aztek. The caliber looks ok I think though. My wife wanted a Caliber but we ended up getting an avenger instead. Kinda looks like a small charger

    The only Cadillac I've heard as a manual that is current, not old, is the CTS-V. I don't know how much you are willing to spend though for me to tell you what I think you should get, haha. But if you got the dough, CTS-V would be nice. If yous don't mind Tap-Shift, I would say the Grand Prix GXP too for a 4D with power.

    Why don't you buy her a Honda, and use the rest to make your car nasty.
