There is tons of information about it. I think that there is actually 2 of them. I found a lot of info on newcelica.org in the forced induction forum. Look for Dave somethin, can't remember his last name. Peaceout

there is only 1 company that has the kit for the GT released right now but I would never buy because you will have a lot of headache and it is poorly made. It is made by www.turbo-performance.com
The other GT turbo is made by David Draper who works for West Covina... However it is not out yet.

apparently this company called 'alpine' is supposedly releasing one by this may. i'm not keeping my hopes up tho since i was expecting the david draper kit, and now its development is not even being funded anymore.

Not sure how good that Alpine turbo is... 11psi only yield 70HP increase on a GT thats just way too low for 11psi, must be using Mickey Mouse turbo or something. My GT25 (otherwise known as T25mall or T too small) got 223.1HP to the wheels which increased by 113HP at 7.1psi...
So not sure if they really know what they are doing with their turbo kit.

Hey Mike Lu. Any internal work done, or is 7 psi safe to run stock on a 01 GT?

no internal work done to push 7psi however you do need bigger fuel pump and regulator as well as bigger injectors.
I do believe its safe on a GTS also because the XS-Engineering comes with 7psi boost, but then XS-Engineering is really good at remaping fuel curve.
