I am tossing up between throwing a turbo into my ED XR6, or keeping naturally aspirated. What would be some key advantages either way?
What would be some ways i could improve my performance staying naturally aspirated??
I have 3'' exaust system, thats about all at moment.
Thanks...

for a start get rid of the 3inch exhaust and put a 2.5 inch one on.
get some extractors,
run it on 98 octane feul and put 2 or 3 degrees more timming advance on it.
XH intake snorkle

from there you could go with a larger cam.

wade so some that will work with your stock ECU and make power from 1000 to 4200rpm ish

crow do some in the same range

surecam do one in that range as well
they also do a larger camand chip deal. power from 1500 5000

Do you have about 10k burning a hole in your pocket?
Then goooo the snail.
Remember, NA has limits (180-190rwkw).
With boost, the limit is theoretically your wallet :D

Thanks for the info, will be used wisely, i know what you mean about the turbo burning a hole in pocket. It already has extractors with the exaust system.
The reason i ask about keeping it N\A, is i like the idea of keeping the car that way.

Forced induction: Smooth power delivery, no compromise on driveability (read: drives like stock when easy on the loud pedal), insane amounts of power posslbe. Costly, huge insurance/roadowrthy considerations and easy to destroy motors. Tuning a pain in the a**.

N/A: Much more affordable, very torquey motor retains plenty of driveability but speed density EFI can be a pain in the but with radical cam changes. Probably be able to do more work yourself.
