    Is your engine built for boost and have you had it dyno'ed?

    I wouldn't recommend a kit at all. Piecing together a kit makes a lot more sense since you can pick out the parts you want and that are best for your application.

    ^ If you want good stuff, you need to pay the price.

    Turbocharging a car isn't cheap in the least respect, especially if you are using quality parts and buying things new.

    The only way its really cheap is if you do a junkyard setup, or mix new parts with used parts, etc.

    A good way to do it is get the turbo and wastegate new, and get a used mani, bov, intercooler, something like that. Do some research and you'll see.

    All of these guys are right. Follow their advice, do some research and you will all of your answers. That way you can actually learn something along the way by having to read about what you need. Use the "search" feature to look up turbo posts. As soon as you start finding parts that you want, feel free to ask us about them. We will be more than glad to help you then. :D Good luck on your build my friend.

    Hmm, I may run into the same dilemma as well, as my goals are 330hp. 440cc injectors have been suggested to me here and there, but I am not really sure whether they will be running at over 90% capacity if I did end up running them. I would suggest looking around at other peoples turbo builds with the same power goals you have. I've read a lot and 550cc injectors seem to be the best for my goal, but again, I'm not even up to that part in my build to have done extensive research on them as of yet. Best of luck to you once again.

    440c are a joke for turbo charged cars!!! best bet is the 100CC injectors... I'm buying my turbo kit from Full-Race.com i know people who had them loved it and they pretty cheap for a full turbo-kit... The one im buying is only 4200 and boost up to 700whp... Ya your not going to use that much but they have a nice one for only 4k that will give you 540whoFull-Race Motorsports LLC Call us toll free at (866) FULL-RACE

    maybe check peakboost.. i know they have legit kits.. for around the 3000 dollar mark.. or if you want to go cheaper.. buy a good turbo, wg, bov,manifold,and an ebay intercooler and then make your own downpipe, dumptube, ic piping. its not that cheap but cheaper then the full kit
