SC for GT?
Check this out. SC for a GT. Looks promising.
DeeJay, if you read this, there is a link to turbo magazine about a 350Z. Enjoy!

that's for the European celica gt not the US spec. They have different fuels and different ECU's or something...

You GT owners should just save your money for David Drapers Turbo kit or Stafford Fabrications Turbo kit. Pass on the s/c.

I think the turbo for the 1zz will be better than a s/c and hell, a turbo sounds beautiful.

$3500 if you preorder one now, I think about $4200 to $4500 after that.

I heard the turbo kit is gonna come with everything you need. The only thing you have to worry about is tranny work I believe confused

I spoke to dave on the phone for like an hour and a half a few weeks ago. His kit comes with new injectors and an AFC already tuned for the turbo kit, it has everything you need, comes with the intercooler, all piping (cutsom made by Injen).. he said you will not need to drop another penny on parts. Optional parts he reccomends are a turbo timer, an exhaust temp gauge and a boost gauge, just to monitor everything (not included in the kit). He said the ONLY long term effects of the (200whp) 6psi boost MIGHT be that you will burn out your clutch a tad sooner, but only because people tend to punch it at higher RMPs because the turbo spools at around 1600RPM.
