I thought i had my heart set on the S280. So much so i ignore this thread whenever it bubbles up. But having read through, I'm leaning towards the Whoosh hybrid again. The recent price increase on the s280 is a factor but mostly you guys really framed the argument well. I will never do an ethanol blend or mod my fuel system so no real point in the s280. I will have Adam try to ease tip-in and mitigate the torque spike (just a bit) on the hybrid and live happily ever after. And save $300 while I'm at it.

But then there's the argument of over spinning the lil hybrid turbo, creating excess heat, losing efficiency, etc...Don't know that i care tho. And i think Adam is experienced enough to keep the tune out of the abuse zone...

You definitely sound just like the voice in my head. Its probably going to come down to a coin flip lol.
On the stock turbo, buy a dizzy flash tune and a stratified flash tune. If you enjoy the stratified flash tune more go hybrid. If you enjoy the dizzy tune more go s280. I enjoyed the dizzy tune more

Sounds similar to me. I have a similar mod list and do some track days in CT and MA. I went with a hybrid style turbo. Once I get it installed, I'd happily give you a ride along at one of the CT track days (Thompson) and you can see what you think. Not sure if you were looking to buy sooner however.
They don't hold open track days at NHIS? [dunno]

They hold them at NHMS in Loudon if that's what you meant. Was just offering him CT since it's probably easier for him.
Yeah, that's the place I meant. [thumb]

I was not aware that the name was changed from "International Speedway" to "Motor Speedway". [wink]

Ok let's throw another wrench in here. Is it worth the extra $200 to get the track spec whoosh hybrid turbo over the regular whoosh hybrid? Pretty sweet that you can pretty much get it in any color you want. Idk much about coatings at all and or how they benefit but it would be nice to eventually see some info comparing the two with life expectancies and things of that nature.

I got a coated downpipe and a coated turbo inlet. If I was going Whoosh turbo, I'd get a coated one for heat management. Not sure the color really matters as you can't see the thing anyways.

IF Whoosh offers a close to factory color coating, one could even maintain that factory (frame) turbo 'look' as well, while getting the benefits of said coating, IF that is a concern to anyone.

Ironically, Ron used to be right up in Fleetwood (Pa.), and probably would have installed his own hybrid for you if he was still there. [:(]
I might have found someone. I want to check the Facebook group still but I stopped using FB, twitter, IG long time ago. The ole lady went to school with a local mech who said this would be a cake walk after sending him the link to the whoosh hybrid. I want to face to face with him first before I let him wrench on it.

PLEASE let us know if this pans out, and he seems legit, as there is NO ONE that I can even think of within a 100+ mile radius of here (Dizzy is further away than that, especially given the time/standing still traffic involved to get there!) who is a competent installer/tuner for these cars. [:(]

I'm trying to find someone/shop in the Columbus, OH area that has installed a hybrid or big turbo. Other than a LSD, this would be the icing on the cake for such a great vehicle.

send me a PM. There's someone local up here in the Canton/Akron area who has worked on a lot of STs and has been a ford tech for many many years. He did my clutch/flywheel/LSD install and has helped out a lot of Fiesta owners.
