Get your boost increased and watch your 0-60 time drop to below 5 seconds. I've had a HKS induction kit and a free-flow exhaust fitted, along with my boost upped to 1.3 bar (safe) and it cracks 60 mph in 4.9secs with no noticeable change in fuel consumption.

I own a 1992 gt-s, Increase the boost and watch you're turbo life go downhill, The fuel consumption is excellent for such a powerful car, compare it to scoobs n evo's and you're laughing.
The car is a bit Jekyll and Hyde, impossible to lose in the dry and impossible to keep on the road in the wet! Its all good fun though!

Your comments on fuel consumption don't sound right, my N/A MR2 struggles to get 250 miles out of a tank driving quite steadily so a turbo will have no chance, 200 miles maybe. Still, people aren't exactly going to buy this car for economy!

My car is fairly stock.
Only have a performance air filter, response has become better, but the sound didn't change much (I was hoping it will sound a bit more like a Ferrari being mid-engined and all)
Now you can hear the turbo whine twice as loud (which I haven't decided if I like yet). It sounds like every time I open the throttle the air-condition goes MAD!
As far as the fuel consumption goes.. hm I get about 50-60 miles on a 10 pounds note. and my car is tuned so I don't know what is the first guy is talking about.

Well he posted it in 1999 the price of petrol has gone up hugely since then. Which is why his fuel consumption sounds so good.

In reply to earlier post - the turbo would give better fuel consumption if driven on the turbo and not like a loon as you get better volumetric efficiency from the cylinders which = better fuel consumption, Though who wouldn't drive the Turbo hard lol, you don't buy a car like this for fuel consumption. Wish I'd got the turbo instead of early 158bhp GT model : (.
