There are posts here regarding turboing. Pipes and cooler are good but the turbo itself is crap.

Where will you go to get it tuned after?

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Just buy the pipes off ebay and go to a different place for the turbo and intercooler. Treadstone is a really good place to start. They have just about every option for intercooler/turbos. If you're trying to be cheap about it, it's not going to run right and you'll end up spending more money in the end (trust me, I know) The cheapest thing to do if you can't do all the work by yourself is to take it to someone and work out a deal where you buy parts and they install and tune and everything else. It will save you money in the long run! And it will be done properly.

Post Re: Turbo kit
I've been thinking about it. But what I've been reading from people, some say its worth it and some say its not. Most of the turbo's that are installed I've seen it done, so im assuming its better, along with the HEI mod for sure, I've been through a lot of distys lol

OP I agree with just buying the piping and intercooler. you could get a turbo like a t25 (example) and have the flanges custom made to fit your turbo manifold. What will you be using to tune if you boost?
