:o a bargain!!

My experience: Even the power curve of the TwinTurbo don't matches the switching moments of the box at low rpms.
It's a little bit better in sport mode or when you drive faster.

If you have one large Turbo only, it will be more difficult to drive on normal streets?!

i have a megashift ecu for the gearbox so it will change when i want it to but currently its running on 4 switches so it behaves like a manual
