So I'm looking to getting a frankenturbo!! In the near future, and was wondering if a f4h-t would achieve that time for a 1/4 mile just with the kit tuning and injector ??? Or is the f 23 frankenturbo a better option to achieve that goal ?? Also I was wondering if the f23 can just bolt on to your oem exhaust manifold or do u have to get a manifold for it ???? I've been looking at this stuff for a while but no answers so any help will b apppreciated !!!

Let's start here, you have an auto, which is not a performance auto, and does not handle power any further than stock. I don't know all that goes into switching out an auto trans for a manual, if it's possible or not, but typically the answer to performance folks that are starting with an auto trans is go low and slow.

Others can chime in on the turbo stuff, I am not familiar with that turbo

your auto is worthless. It will just break. Sell it and buy one with the third pedal.

And this, Getting a good deal on an auto for the purpose of performance is like getting a good deal on HIV. You don't want it

It's not worth building that car with the slush box you have. Sell it and get a manual. It can't even handle stock power.
