Turbo

hEy GuYs I wAnt A tUrBo...

What is the best one to get for under $1k? I want at least 300 whp. I already have an Intake and exhaust, so I'm like 80 hp away. Would a supercharger get me better gains? Could I install it myself? I got an "A" in shop class, so I think I could.

I got the car last night and decided it's too slow. I'm 18 and the 'rents pay for mods. I have no idea what things actually cost or that someone on the boards might have asked this question before. Help!

In reality. . . Turbo kits (I think xs-engineering is the only one for the gts) cost roughly $5000.00. If you don't know at least that much you should probably have a professional install it for you. With that kit, expect about 240-250 whp. If you want 300 whp, you're looking at having to go with forged turbo pistons, connecting rods, etc. etc. not to mention a custom turbo, which can be hazardous if you don't know what you're doing. But you should be fine. . . you got an "A" in shop class. thatsfunny

Hey Saikou_Serika, it's nothing personal. Your post wasn't nearly as ridiculous as some of the others I've seen. Just thought I'm have a little fun with the absurd number of posts we have on one topic. Wasn't meant as a diss, hope there are no hard feelings. wave

What is up wiht nubs???? Same questions over and over again. Search Button Is your FREIND! thumbsup

Turbo for 1k or less rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl Did i mention Im still laughing?


Can we please stop with the Stupid threads? thumbsup

If i have to saw anyting though. 300whp will be a lot more than 1k. The pistons and rods that you'll need to get that high will be more than 1k... Do some more resaerch "SEARCH" button. Than ask us more about turbo's . I know your new and I don't mean to be mean but really...

Hell if your rents are plaing for everything. just ahve them put down like 10k and you'll have one fast car... I would plan on for you getting the C2Gas GTS kit when it comes out. They will make sure you don't blow your-srlf up.. "thank god for set fuel bars"

how about an faq for this particular forum? That way anything having to do with the classic:
"Which Intake should I get"
"how do I turbo"
"why is my car slow?"
etc. will all be in one place so we can all just point to it and leave it at that.
