    it'd help if we knew your goals, such as power, responsiveness, etc.

    what i meant was we need to know how much power you want to make such as 250whp or something. different turbos are capable of different things.

    yeah but he told it's a coupe, all coupes take the same turbo


    actually as far as I know, the coupes take the same boost fluid and blinker fluid too

    have to be careful though, because i think the viscosity is a little different from the boost fluid the hatchbacks are using now

    i think you should bring it to a shop and have them install it.

    no offense dude, but you don't sound remotely up to the task or mechanical ability it takes to pull off a complete turbo system build.

    better to pay now than blow up later.

    sorry for my ignorance, but i don't quite understand why all coupes take the same turbo. i mean, can you not use different sizes. i know that you can do overkill or underkill with turbos but is there not at least a slight variety of sizes that the d17 could handle? just curious.

    my monthly attempt at some resemblence of humor failed again :p

    oh well

    yeah, I personally get the vibe that you really have no idea what you're doing. Putting a turbo on a motor without much knowledge isn't a great idea. I'd recommend either expanding your knowledge, buying a kit, or having a shop install a setup for you.

    Pick the wrong turbo for your motor and you could end up with a soggy unresponsive dog of a motor, where the turbo is nothing more than a restriction in the intake path
