XS Engineering
I like to put a Turbo kit but XS Engineering is the only one available. I heard a lot of complaint about this kit. Is it worth getting?

There's more than XS on the market. Search on the ecelica forums for Stafford Fabrication and C2 Turbo kits for the GTS

whats wrong with the XS? it seems to be the better system, it has a ball bearing Turbo and the stafford only uses a regular Turbo. The stafford T03 would prob make more top end horse but ball-bearing Turbos have way better response and less lag. And both systems claim 250-270 whp.

In this forum there's a battle between SF kits and C2power kits. Use the search function to see what others are saying between these kits. Last time I check, they say SF is good but delivery is a prob because it takes few months after your kit to be shipped out most of the people who ordered the kit are still in the waiting list. C2power was nothing but promising results, but the kit came from Europe and you have to deal with international transaction and shipping. It's your money, It's your call..you decide. For a mod that will cost you 3000-5000 (parts and labor), I say research first.. happywink

I'm particularly attached to the SF kits smile but SF and C2 should be your ONLY choices. XS = dog poo.

See If SF would have paid the money to advertise on those new little ricer car toys they have out now thats all you'd hear about. but instead XS has deep pockets so they jumped on that wink Name recognition is key. stupid people wont know if the kit is good or bad and since its on those toys it MUST be good rofl
