    What cars should NEVER be BOOSTED, what cars MUST be BOOSTED?

    Let's hear it guys, what cars should be kept NA? What cars MUST have boost (that aren't already from the factory)?

    I'll start, if you have a Supra and it isn't boosted, you should be shot and taken for your car!

    I once thought there were certain cars that should never be touched.

    The CSL, Challenge Stradale, F430 Scuderia, GT3 RS.

    However, I now think anything can be boosted... but there still are a couple I would not touch: Enzo or Carrera GT.

    A 911 turbo probably should be boosted Click here to enlarge

    +1, we recently had a customer's Scud Novitec Supercharged at my work and it made me change my mind on the Scud. If I wanted to go FI on a GT3RS, though, I'd probably just start with the Turbo and work on suspension from there. I definitely agree on the MKIV Supra Click here to enlarge.

    The weird thing is, the more you focus on the turbo, you more notice an overlap between what people are trying to do. A few guys want higher revs and better heads instead of just cramming more and more boost which lead to detonation... so guess what valvetrain and heads they look at? The GT3's.

    Plus, the GT3 is lighter, RWD, but then maybe the argument should be to go straight to a GT2 Click here to enlarge

    I would not boost a GT3 of any sort, unless you are super baller and have two of them, one for track and one to mess with.

    Costs $14-$16K to twin turbo one: http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthrea...-997-GT3-setup

    True to an extent... but many people use their GT3 on the street.

    A boosted GT3 is an awesome platform, just like the M3.

    Agree, certain FI setups can be a pain in ass at the track sometimes.

    GT3 is the perfection.

    I once read that about diesel and the track and look how Audi has cleaned up. Soon we will see hybrid race cars, well we already seen it in F1 where there where mechanics and electrician sitting in the pits hehe.
    To me a Turbo GT3 is no sacrilege, its basically a GT2 and they got a great track history.
