    Looking to build a track/autocross MR-S 2ZZ swap but can’t decide between doing a 6 speed with no turbo or a 5 speed with a turbo. If I turbo it, I would probably keep it right around 220whp. I can’t afford to do both right now, but maybe down the road. Which option would be the best and why...
