    soo i wannaa whole lot about turbo turbo my d16. i dont know a whole lot about turbos. i know how they work but i need to know what is needed to run a reliable kit. i found kit on ebay for like 600 dollars it comes with the manifold turbo waste gate, intercooler and piping and also the bov. now from what i have gathered i would also need injectors, maybe a fuel pump, and an apexi vafc, and also a boost controller, then it would probly be a good idea to get gauges. does any body know if there is anything alse i would have to have. or if there is anything iv said that i wouldnt need. thanks later

    i would go with the turbo because you can upgrade it easy and its free hp were the supercharger isnt, meaning it takes away power to make power by using belts, were the turbo dosent

    don't waste your time with a t20 or t25. those are for insights.

    build up a junk yard kit. get a log mani and a 14b or something like that from a talon. nice and cheap.

    Another option is to get a cast manifold. I have been using one I bought off of ebay and I have not had any issues or problems with it. Depending on the turbo get an oil restrictor for your oil line. Stay away from XS power headers....
    I ended up sourcing all my parts from ebay for my build and it turned out great. Don't forget bigger injectors of at least 440cc's and learn turboedit for your programming if you want to tune it yourself.

    There are two kits that we offer for the mighty D owners.

    The less expensive (~$1300) one is non-intercooled, and uses an FMU. ALthough we know that a non-intercooled FMU based system is not the absolute best performer for a turbo kit. This kit is a great first time turbo kit. Everything is included, and it's a complete bolt-on affair, no fabrication required.

    The second and more expensive ($2500) kit is also a complete bolt on system, no fabrication required. It is intercooled, and comes with a complete additional injector system. It even has a programmable fuel controller for the injectors. It's also a great system for the first timers, it's just more expensive.

    Anyway, not trying to whore out the thread too much, just thought I would post up a little more information about the product you mentioned.

    Thanks from Craig

    you can buy a greddy kit for 1200 dollars, all you would need is a front mount .which you can ebay it for around 180 shipped
    but that also depends on what year your car is.
    if it is a 96 and up put a wiring harness conversion on it
    just putting it out there

    im selling all kinds of D series turbo stuff in the parts section. piece your own together man, its much cheaper and you can get what you want, not some pre fabbed kit.

    14b is a t25. The Big16G is a decent compromise between low end response and top end power. It wont choke out before redline but it doesnt have that insane pull up top like a t3/t4. If you're looking at an s/c, the 16g will have s/c like response with much better top end. Turbo > S/C :)
