Well, probally to get the maximum use out of it, you cant just have all stock and a S/C (well you can) But you'd wanna get exhaust/intake/headers/etc to get the most outta it id say. Part wise to install it, i dunno

intake/exhaust/headers are a good idea, but i'd also recommend a chip and a larger TB (62mm) to let more air into the engine.

so pretty much just exhaust headers an intake.... wouldn't have to rebuild upper an lower it should be fine? not any pistons or anything

Well, you wouldnt have to. Over the time though, i bet there would have been things you would have wish you waited and upgraded certain items. S/C & Turbos are fun but are costly to maintain if not used right.
Theres a few guys ive seen floating around here with S/Cers, just talk to them or search around. I had a Ford Probe w/turbo pushing 12psi and that was hella fun, just gotta making sure your not stressing things too much

There's no need to rebuild the UIM and LIM. The car will run fine as it is. It would help performance wise, but to me it's not worth it if you P&P the manifolds and not the heads.

Thats awesome......I didn't even think that they could fit a turbo on this engine. I just picked up a sponsor and this would be a great addition.

I have no idea if you found someone i would be more then happy to do it also. Im not even sure how the hole thing works either. It would be kinda fun to be sponsored plus it lowers the cost alot,

do NOT get a kit from them. you can do a search and see why. not a very good reputation.

I just logged onto ineedasponsor.com and filled out an application. I saw the ad in a Sport Compact Car magazine and signed up. They called me two weeks later and asked if i was serious.

Wouldn't a supercharger give me just about the same amount of hp as a turbo?

I'm thinking of getting it myself, but not for awhile. I wanted a supercharger, but there just too much money, and not enough benefit.


If anyone gets on, post some comments, I didn't find any comments in the forum about this kit, except this one, and he is still waiting for parts I think.

ditto....this would be a pretty big investment for my car adn i would like to know as much as possible about the item. I do plan on purchasing the turbo at the end of summer though. I parked my car and took the insurance off in order to save up for it. I only have to pay half though because of my sponsor. :slayer
