    do you already have a turbo on the car or looking to buy a kit?

    If you dont already have a kit just buy one with an intercooler,seeing as it would come with all the tubing you will need.

    If you already have a kit, just buy an intercooler, take it to a reputable shop, and have them bend up some tubing for it. Then if you want to get creative, (or have a shop) cut out your licence plate area on your bumber for better flow to the core and to show it off a little.

    If your only going 5psi, i would just go with a fuel pump for safety. your stock cam will be fine with an off the shelf turbo kit with 5 pounds... but if you wanted to cam your car too call a cam manufacturer and tell them your set up and some realistic goals and they can grind you a custom cam. Good part is if you do order a custom cam its not much more than an off the shelf item.

    That's way too much money for 5psi, a real waste. You can make that or more with H/C. 5psi will only net you about 100-125rwhp (6-speed, less for an auto).

    go with heads, cam, and a tune, the power is always there and its just a few less things to worry about when ur done

    thats what i want to do, but money and time are an issue

    turbos can be a pain in the ass... H/C is definitely the way to go on our cars

    The guys are right to a certain extent, you can get more hp for less money if you do H/C. But think about this, even if you made 150 rwhp with H/C you are tapped out. If you turbo it you can just turn the boost up! If you do a radical cam first, you will have to change it when you switch to a turbo anyway. Turbo's love a lazy cam. I good friend of mine runs 12psi with methonal on a stock motor. He has not had any problems yet!!
