    I agree it needs tint, maybe with income taxes unless your buying lol

    It runs pretty good. Its not a turbo racecar its a turbo gas saver. That said id like to get an intake, exhaust and tune but that will be a good bit later.

    LoL Speed racer boost definitely needs upped. these granny tunes that GM puts on makes no power until your going fast anyway.. it's lame. Diviing a dart vs a cruise is night and day with the same displacement turbo motor.

    My plan for pricey stuff is
    1. Tint... it needs it so bad. And I don't like it so bright in there either.
    2. Intake... then i can hear the turbo. Pretty hard to hear stock
    3. Tune... the cheapest canned tunes are close to $300 still
    4. Exhaust

    Other little stuff along the way
    Shifter bushings
    Short shifter
