I think if you plan on keeping it for long term, get the turbo now and eventually down the road, do a tranny upgrade. In the meantime, you can add an oil cooler and such.

Uh-uh, the tranny will take a dump as soon as the turbo goes on. I need a new tranny before the turbo is there, the one I got now will be reliable up to maybe 2 psi continuously. The clutches, cooling, and torque converter all need to be replaced.

That's some weak transmission. I had an automatic Corolla with a supercharger on there. It ran just fine with no tranny cooler at all and stock transmission. It was running on 7-8 psi too.

Plus, the supercharger is putting out constant boost and the turbo isn't. Maybe it's just Ford....

Nah, it's just they put a transmission rated at 140 crank hp/tq in a 130 crank hp/tq car.

They have to be special ordered and cost quite a bit too. $200+ dollars for one tire!!! They're suppose to be performance tires (at least that's what Goodyear says) and they're also new.
Haha I think im going to paint mine black just in caase I get a flat lol.

Damn that exhaust is fucking loud. I've never heard a car so loud. Especially at about 3.5k RPM's. Almost unbearable. But damn its amazing, I get the biggest grin on my face, because It also has a cold air

Ahhhh, I love my new car

That will be my car. I can run you over bitches. Hell, if you can outrun me, that's fine, because you can't outrun the bullets from that sweet chain gun.
