    I would buy a front mount kit from you as long as you know what you are doing. Don't worry about some of the assholes giving you crap. They are just afraid of change.

    ... or afraid of a person who uses cheep parts "well thats with a sizable profit.. considering all materials going into the kit.. of course then theres the labor factor for my roommate the welder..." what kind of steel and tubing are you using again?

    and no IC even with a high compression motor? dosnt matter if its low boost or not... gonna need injectors too, unless you wanna max out the stock ones. espically when boost naturaly increases in cold weather by 2-3psi. I have a 4 cylinder turbo and live in the DC area, when its 26 degrees in the middle of winter it boosts more.... and runs leaner unless the injectors will compensate. good thing I have 50lbs injectors and its tuned.

    another thing is you already have a bad rep, your gonna have to do an aweful lot to prove otherwise, along with durability testing. cause last thing anybody wants is their header to crack. (and yes with WOT blasts your headers WILL glow with a turbo, just make sure you let her cool down before you shut her off) kinda cool to see too.

    if your confident that you can build this system, prove that it can last, and made well. then by all means go for it. otherwise dont count your eggs before they hatch

    input is fine, but theres no reason to slam something that isnt even out yet..
    i need input on what you guys want out of a turbo kit, without the cost going thru the roof..
    you guys make me a list of features and i'll see if i can jam them all in.. without hitting the $3000 mark... ok?

    Turbo Kit

    Yeah that sounds like winner. I would pay that.

    You might add a ninth injector that activates under heavy boost or something like the GN guys do. Keep it nice and fat under load to prevent detonation.

    should get around 575 to the wheels... not sure if fuel will be an issue.. if it becomes an issue at around 8 psi, then we might have to include injectors or a boost pump with the kit..
    well..........the proof is in the pudding. It has been more than three weeks, more like five. Is it done yet, dyno tuned, any updates at all?
