Stay away form Ebay turbo kits.

Its going to cost you some money if you want to turbo your car the right way.

I also have a stock motor and with all the supporting mods & turbo kit I have over $10-12k into the turbo setup and that is at my price. Most people end up spending more than that for the same setup I have and I installed everything myself so there is no labor included in the $10-12k

don't cheap out because it won't run worth a shit.

you are going to need kpro, a good clutch, larger injectors, fuel pump, rising rate fuel pressure regulator, inline fuel filter, fuel rail, 3" exhaust, mounts, turbo kit, 3" exhaust, upgraded map sensor, boost controller, etc. The list isn't short at all. If you want, you can look at my build thread and see my parts list to give you an idea of what you are going to need.

A decent turbo kit is going to cost you at least $3500 as well.

well when i said my k was stock internally, i meant it. i have all the fuel upgrades other then the injectors. no 3 inch exsaust tho:cry:...... i have a stage 3 clutch masters disc, pressure plate and flywheel. Even the BDL 70 mm TB but sadly no RBC. And a super sweet Rcrew header which wont help at all with a turbo setup. But ofcourse i do have the almighty Kpro:worship: so all i really need is the turbo set up and a good tune from Churches. but now im low on cash having a K kinda hurts ur wallet im sure u know wut i mean....well u might not u might have a way better income then me lol.

Oh, I know what you mean. This shit broke my bank account for sure. It was something that was built up over the course of 2 years. I ran NA for a long time even after I bought the turbo setup. Hell, its still breaking my bank account. It ate a tranny today so now I have to get another tranny and install it. Between parts and a new clutch I am going to have to take another grand out of my pocket.

I am also a grad student, work 3 jobs to make ends meet. Its not like I have a shit load of money to dump into this thing. Its gets way to pricey at times.
