    then id recommend buying a kit that is already pieced together, itll make your life a whole lot easier.
    youre still going to need a few things aside from that kit, but its very complete in terms of the turbo setup

    now i have done some research on other forums and i seen that this isnt such a good idea becasue of the cylinder walls in the b20 there very weak how reliable do u think a stock b20b with a bolt on turbo good tune and like 10psi pushin around 250 maybee be?

    stock b20b on 250whp is pushing it
    the tune had better be really good. its not the sleeves you have to worry about at 250whp, its the pistons and rods

    200hp? 210? stock?

    200whp would be a decent number on stock internals
    itd be fairly safe and reliable dependent upon the tune of course

    I recommend NOT buying a Peakboost kit. I bought the b-series ftw kit last year around May timeframe, and I am still waiting on a few parts....they sent parts to the wrong address twice. I don't doubt that they make good quality parts, but they are way too slow with processing and shipping. Also, that kit is not worth what they're asking now, mine was actually a little bit cheaper, I bought the kit when it was $2800. You can get one of those xspower kits for about $600. I had a b20b in my 97 coupe and made about 215whp on 8psi with an xspower kit, but I wouldn't use their manifolds.

    my advice is to stay away from ebay turbo kits, but to each his own

    Yea, well, piecing one together isn't a bad option either, it's just a matter of getting the right flanges, getting piping to match up etc. I'm sure you can find a place to make some custom piping for you too.
