    Best turbo for the bucks

    Ok im thinking very seriously bout going with a turbo kit. Im not really crazy about the rear mount but i dont really know a whole lot bout all of them. I really need some suggestions on what brand, style, etc...... I'm mainly stock, just k&n which will be changed to a cold air, borla exhaust, and 100 shot. Sub frame connectors and STB. I was thinking about getting an ls6 like intake, headers, and throttle body but i was thinking i might as well just go all out and get a turbo and be done with it. Let me know what yall think please. Im still thinkin bout the intake (its pretty sweet lookin). Thanks

    Hold up, that pic from the bottom looks like the intercooler completely blocks out airflow to the radiator

    I think if I was going with a turbo kit I would just spend the extra money and go with the APS kit. This kit just seems like its too rigged up with the intercooler piping and turbo placement. The APS intergrates almost perfectly, and its a twin system as well. This seems more like the eBay kits, designed as an afterthought rather than integrating everything into the design of the car.

    I just don't like the fact that the downpipe goes under the k-member and the intercooler blocks the whole inlet area for the radiator ... well that's about the whole thing. I've seen one of these kits installed in person and it did very well on the dyno, but that's not real world.

    how do they run there manifolds to the turbo? Looks like the AC and Alternator havent moved. This interests me. Since i might be building my own kit this winter
