I'd love to turbo my D16Y1 too but the dam kits are costly here in OZ

I wonder if anyone in the good old US would send me a kit :sadface:
are you talking about a bolt-on kit, or an HMT kit? If you have access to eBay and/or a good junk yard, you can build a HMT kit for under a grand...

I've had a few bad experiences using eBay for buying Overseas

Yeah, the more I read the more I think I could DIY but as you know reading and doing are quite different lol

I’m looking at getting the GReddy Kit and upgrading the Intercooler if I can find a reasonable price but there’s no chance here in Australia…

Even prices at Junk yards are quite high IMO

We ship to Australia, but you pay any customs / taxes / duties / shipping of course. We offer two kits for the D engines, check them out here...

Turbocharging Kits at Tuner Toys

We can also get the GReddy and Edelbrock kits. Just hit us up with an email at "[email protected]".

That said, I think there is a lot of value in building your own kit. You learn a lot and earn yourself a lot of self satisfaction. Plus there are a lot of us on here who will help you out, provided you put a commensurate amount of effort into it.

Get yourself a cheap engine stand and a blown-up D engine from the salvage yard. Then start mocking up your turbo kit in the garage on that blown-up engine. You'll learn how everything goes together, which will be very valuable when it comes time to install it on your car for real.
