so i ask.... how reliable is an IS that throws down 11's all day long?? and for daily driving can you crank down the boost to a more normal level for gas mileage/engine longevity reasons, or once youve gone stage 2/3, are you pretty much driving a rocket to the grocery store and back everyday?

You can absolutely turn the boost down and keep your rpms below boost and it will drive like a normal IS....Then when you hit the track put some higher octane race gas/ sticky tires and run higher boost and go after an 11 with the proper set-up. It is nice to have an extra vehicle for the just incase scenarios that can occur with ANY fast car.
