I wanna see more about this. I don't deny it can't be done. Any dyno cards? 13 psi spread out across 6 cylinders is like 8.5 psi in 4 cylinders so theoretically with a very very very good tune and proper maintenance, with much love and care he could run this setup. Not saying it's going to last a very long time, but it could be done. Nice to see somebody breaking out of their shell and doing something different as previously stated. So many V8's around that it's nice to see turbo 6 cylinder.


For those of you on TRF my username is the same.

oh how I love you guys. some of you guys have no faith. a stock ecoboost only does like 14.7 in the 1/4 mile. I have personally done 14.0 on 9psi @ 103 mph on street tires. now that I am @ 13psi I should easily hit mid 13's.

a boss only hits like a 12.7 stock with a pro driver in the 1/4 mile. if the guys can't drive the car like most guys I know. he is lucky to hit mid 13's. it is completely possible to beat one.

I know a guy who beat a 2013 boss with a 2012 gt. my brother beat a 2012 gt with his 06 cobalt that was tvs charged. so think before you speak. just remember you were not there.

no proof of what? I threw my time slips out. I compared them to my friends and threw them out. they are pieces of paper.

my eyes are brown and always have been.

the guy that owns the dyno around here is currently relocating to a bigger facility. i will be going there to get metered when he is back up and running.

have you ever built a ranger? or did you just read on a screen that this can't be or that can't done.

have an open mind to something new. a v8 isn't the only thing that can make power. the GTR and Supra 2JZ have 6 cylinders and are in my opinion.. KING of the road.
