    How Good is Boost for Auto-X?

    I would imagine you'd need to use a small turbo, like a greddy turbo or a GT25, something for mid-range power. Does anyone here do that?

    Something fast spooling would be a must.

    low boost, fast spool and midrange power would be what auto-x users are looking for. No top-end power for this one. Traction is a must in auto-x too.

    um... yea, when I autox'd with the greddy kit, it was a blast. full boost 12psi at 3200rpms made a HUGE powerband. only problem, traction. then again, I just upgraded my tires, suspension, and brakes to compensate and it all worked itself out in the end.

    when i started auto-xing, i was on some BFG KDW2's. I figured it was enough since it was a pretty fun street tire... nope! so now I run my stock wheels with nitto NT01's.
