    I'll save you some money....Dont try to get the STS kit to get you 500RWHP. Their base kit comes with a 63mm turbo I think and if you crank it up to 8lbs of boost you are looking at some high inlet air temps!!!! I know......you're going to say what about an intercooler....well....an intercooler will take off some of your boost.....just depends on how big it is.....if you're willing to spend the money do the research on a front mounted turbo.....I have the STS kit and I really dont care too much for it....I blew the stock motor when we cranked it up to 8lbs of boost and now we are working on a SLP 402 motor with a 76mm Hairdryer....it's taken four months and a lot of fabricating......

    well....I'll tell you....I have one of their 402's with a 76mm turbo on it and it will mow down just about anything on the street.........they use top quality parts.......I dont know who told you they inflate their numbers but I'll vouch for their claims on HP.....it's there.......
