dont waste ur time wit them, ive heard nothin but bad stuff from them. if ur gonna spend 3500 for a turbo, look in to the c2 kit. from wat ive read its pretty much the best kit available and they have great customer service

Look for my post, I also posted some decent dyno numbers! Remember DA uses a K04 turbine, so don't let anyone with a T3 say that at 6psi there's is making more power, Common sense, bigger turbo the more air it pushes!!!!!!! Good luck in your decision wave

Keep in mind the DA kit does not come with an intercooler.

DA is still trying to finish the original kits from his original orders. Some of those people have already been waiting for almost 2 years. I'm not sure if he is gonna continue selling kits after hes done with the original orders. Im selling my SF kit if you're interested.

My bad about the intercooler. I had remembered reading that it didn't. Guess I should have checked the site before posting. Maybe I was thinking about the BOV.

The only problem about running a big turbo on a small motor is that i will take longer to spool up. You will get max boost at like 8 grand. There is a fine line in the size of the turbo. Too big = long spooling time, to small = quick spool less hp and torque.

you need to go hang out on mr2oc and say some of these things, full boost is what for what? you are being so general, a td06 might hit full boost around 3800-4200 if im not mistaken and can support 400hp? is that a small turbo? everyday is the same bicker about small and big turbos and this so called "lag" they complain about 400-600 rpms. anyways...

the DA kit is a joke cause it's almost impossible to get and almos tnobody gets a complete kit.

I suggest C2Power cause his kits have been proven time and time again and he actually delivers his product on time. and I havent heard 1 complaint about his customer service yet.

Not much turbo for the 7th gen celica in the market as of now. either you go with C2 or otherwise you best bet is just do a custom turbo setup.
