after I am done whole project cost me $5700. Right now I still need boost controller + bigger fuel pump + regulator + return fuel line. After all this installed I will run 230 HP to the wheel so it translate to over 250 to the crank at 10p.s.i.

Shop called Creative Audio and Performance. They did the work on my car. Ivan (red dragon celica featured in front page of magazine) had his turbo done there before.

Ivan is not selling his car anymore, he got into racing his car now. Thanks to all for the complements hopefully rest of my mods will be done (within 6 month time I am tapped so can not upgrade turbo equipment just yet)

My turbo is running great, if you are interested a shop in So Cal sells turbo kits online. www.turbo-performance.com you can have them send it to a shop and have the shop install them for ya. Its not same turbo as mine but theirs should work great too.
Turbo maintainance is expensive, here is whats involved: Synthetic motor oil only, use 20W50 only, change every 1500 miles.
The supercharger pics is Blitz supercharger and it is not available yet, thats their project car.

I have a GT so do not really have to replace anything other than the injectors, if you have GTS and want to run above 5p.s.i. you have to change to low compression piston and rods etc etc.
Ofcourse have to add S-AFC or some kind of fuel management computer, and a fuel system (return fuel line + bigger fuel pump + regulator)

If you are planning to turbo at around 5p.s.i. you do not really need anything other than the kit. If you want to boost higher you will need a boost controller, that controller basically lies to the wastgate to boost more. If you want to go above 12p.s.i. you do have to change quite abit of internals, I do not recommand going that high.

hahaha thanks. Well my car is going to be tuned on 29th and then I will think about installing boost controller to boost at 8psi for starter. Will probably boost 10psi as daily driver.
Neways this has been the most expensive thing I have done ever to my car, and its making me invest more into going quicker. I may go for stage 3 turbo (do all internal) and boost somewhere around 20psi.
