Thinking about Turbo
I need some advise i recently saw a GTS with Turbo in a mall and it made me really think about putting it in my car. I got a business card of the people that can install it and everything. My car is a 2002 with 48k miles on it. I had just called the company that will install it and they said it would cost me $6500. i was wondering if anyone has had a Turbo installed and how much you paid for it. Thanks for any advise

my uncle paid that much to get a Turbo installed in his gay kia spectra thumbsdown so the price I guess sounds about right... his car is still slow by the way but it has a nice blow off valve sound thumbsup happywink

there's got to be more to it than just a Turbo install. Is it a full kit with intercooler and ECU tuning and such?

Look up other shops in your location and familiarize yourself with the basics of Turbos: intercoolers, piping diameter, new internals, etc. See if that price includes dyno runs.
