This car is a sleeper
The alternator went bad.
The alternator belt broke.
The inside door pulls have snapped.
It overheats a little.
The radiator cracked.
Seats have stared to wear badly.
When I first bought this car, I thought it was the fastest thing on the road. I was wrong. I guess anything seems fast after driving a 4 cylinder mini van. Now when the boost kicked in, it became very peppy. I use the word peppy because it wasn't fast.
I began searching for performance parts to put this car to the test. Parts are hard to find. After a performance exhaust system, air intake system, and manual boost controller was installed it will blow the doors off of most anything.
The car weighs practically nothing so small increases in horsepower really make a difference. Currently, I believe my 0-60 time is in the low 6 second range and I'm boosting around 12psi.
I am currently working on getting a new performance computer which will allow me to boost at 16psi, but I won't go over 15. I have heard of other owners who have done this and they run the quarter mile in the low 13 second range. To give you an idea of how fast that is, 13.3 seconds is what the Corvette Z06 runs the quarter in.
This car is awesome if your willing to put the money into it.
The only fault I have about the engine is that it should have been turned around. The turbo is right by the radiator and it heats the radiator (which sort of defeats its purpose).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
