hay i have a 1999 ek1 and am thinking of going forced induction. ive found a bolt on kit that i think would be good (dont realy know alot when it comes to turbos im normaly a N/A man). but ive asked the supplier several questions about it and all they have said is exactly what is on the website, so i was wondering if you guys could help.

im running a d16y4 on stock internals and almost 200k on it. and am looking at at most 7psi.

the kit contains:



- Rev Hard Cast Iron Manifold
- Custom T3/T04 Turbo
- Rev Hard Intercooler 27" x 6.5" x 3"
- Rev Hard 38MM Wastegate
- Rev Hard Blow Off Valve
- 12:1 Boost Dependant FMU
- High Volume Fuel Pump
- Billet Map Diffuser (check valve)
- 2.25" Aluminized Mandrel Bent Piping
- 2.5" Downpipe
- Silicone Hoses & Clamps
- Steel Braided -3 Oil Line
- All Necessary Hardware & Fittings

and costs around 5k

well im in australia and everything is realy expensive here. ive had a look at the go-autoworks site and they do have some nice looking kits but i will still be looking at a minimum of 2.5k for the kit plus postage. then i need to get a chip and fuel pump. which is why i liked the other kit cause it came with everything for a set price. tho i have been thinking i should lower the compression and run a bigger turbo.

any ideas please im realy running out of them myself.

dude that kit is junk listen to what people are saying, i would smack the shit outa the person who told me $5k for a kit that comes with a FMU lmmfao. JUUNNNNNNNNNNNNKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK. site sponsor is way better, they can build you a kit thats better than that for $5k if you are stuck on spending $5k for a "kit" instead of buying and putting together a turbo setup for $2500.

Dude before you blow all your monies please hang out for awhile. Read through the 'forced induction' threads and you will learn quite a bit. No matter which way you go you will have to get your car tuned.....But if your hell bent on spending 5,000 dollars go for it.

rev-hard kits have been around for quite awhile, and have a good reputation for quality, but they are WAY overpriced. basically an Ebay kit with a descent turbo and intercooler.

money is better spend on the go-autoworks kit. they will make it as complete as needed and still be less than the rev-hard kit.

5000$ LOL. Highway robbery.

Go-Autoworks kit and an engine rebuild would cost you less. Use the leftover money for a nice tune.
