    im looking into getting a EF hatch and wanted to go turbo for something quick, but breaking the 200 hp mark. i have a friend that is selling a gt28r turbo for $300 and was wondering if i should pick it up since they spool so fast, he also has a kit for sale kinda sorta for $750 w/ some 450 (iirc) DSM injectors, he said the kit is good for 250HP and just wanted to know another route about doing this.

    Garrett makes a gt28r BB which comes with the edelbrock turbo kit!
    My homeboy made 260whp on that kit a stock d16y8 14-16psi!:D
    The gt28 will make 200hp but hp don't mean anything if you can't put it to the wheels..

    the GT28r turbo is definetly worth the 300 bux if there is no shaft play! U cant buy a new one for that! strong turbo and spools pretty quickly you shouldnt have any lag!

    it kinda sucks because the disco potato (gt28rs) looks almost exactly like a smaller T3 or yes even possibly a T28. They are both internally gated as well. Check the casting numbers and at least make sure for 100% sure that you aren't going to pay $300 for a worn out T28.
