Not being sarcastic at all. A 4.5t, especially if you are not running any boost, is not as fast as people are making it out to be. Especially when you are doing speed runs in an open parking lot. My point was, if people race with boosted 4.5t on tight tracks, then it can be handled for bashing in an open parking lot.
A 17.5t for "speed runs" would be pretty boring.
A Tekin RS Pro can handle a 4.5t turn motor and it will not overheat. At worst you will have to add a second cap and maybe a fan. The Pro is made to handle mod, and although it's not commonly used for mod touring car because of it's poor throttle feel, it will work in your application.
