    I love the instant rush of torque/power that nitrous injection provides. That instant power surge has helped me out alot when racing turbocharged imports, especially from a roll.

    My good friend's 05 STI over and over and over again is first on my list. :lol: I've been him every time we've raced, while he was stock and now that's he's moderately modified. I've beat him at the track and on the street, in real 1/4 mile races at the track and in roll races on the highway. Back when I was only spraying 75, we were pretty close power-wise, but that instant rush of torque would make me pull away while his turbo was still spooling and he'd never catch up.

    I also beat down a last model RX7 turbo very badly in a 40-100mph street race. The STI hangs in much better than the RX7 did.

    I've also beaten two BMWs (not turbocharged, but you did ask for imports) on the street, a latest model Laguna Seca Blue M3 coupe and a late 90s 330 sedan. I raced the M3 out of a light to about 90, he got me out of the hole but I caught and passed him. The 330 I absolutely crushed, again from a light.

    I've beaten a few slow 15+ second Civics and whatnot at the track, but I don't really count them.

    I love my Zex kit. But I must say I am looking to add 670 roots (with the n2o).

    408w 13.66cr.. the way i'm went

    in my eyes it all depends on what the car is going to be used for.... for road racing i woudl always say more cubes and compression.. but i got to say there is not much else that sounds like a kenne bell on a stroked cobra 4v on open headers..

    turbos are sweet. expensive but sweet. No pullies to change for more boost. No belt slippage to limit boost. No throwing a belt and loosing boost.

    I don't peticularly like turbo's on a V-8, im more of a traditionalist, sorry. I think ricers=Turbo, big V-8 stump puller=Supercharger. Plus i really like the wine of a supercharger apposed to the sound of a turbo. And if your not a full out racer, usually a supercharger is generally the best way to go. Just my two cents...

    If I was a poor teenager, I would go nitrous. If I was a 30 something with dissposible income I would go roots blower. But since Im a 30 something with a growing family, my extra cash goes to 10 yrs worth of bolt-ons and NA Ford power!
