    ~LOW budget turbo build~

    Has anyone here done a LOW budget turbo set up? If so how much did it cost?

    If not how much do you think I could build one for, buying used, off of ebay, classifieds, doing most the work myself. etc etc etc

    If you want to go supercharger...low budget I have a Powerdyne that I rebuilt and have not put on my car(since the rebuild) and it made 383RWHP and 399RWTQ with just the basic boltons(lid, Ypipe and Loudmouth).

    I have also been toying with the DIY turbo idea. What I have so far is:

    2x TD05H turbos with 16G comp wheels ($760 Shipped for both) 380Hp each
    1x 24" x 12" x 4" Intercooler with 3" inlet and outlet ($200 Shipped)
    2x Set of oil feed lines to turbo ($100)
    2x Set of oil return lines from turbo ($90)
    2x Manifold to turbo Custom Pipes ($200)
    2x Custom Downpipes ($300)
    2x Airfilters ($80)
    8x Injector ($500)
    1x Fuel Pump ($150)
    1x HPTuners ($499)
    1x HKS Blow off valve ($105 shipped)

    I am looking at intakehoses.com for the hoses from turbo -> IC -> Inlet.
    Could be as much as $300.

    Subtotal: $3330.00


    I am looking at placing the turbos where the battery and airbox used to be (similar to LPE kit)





    Those turbos are cheap. What is a TD05h?
    Intercooler cheap.
    Pipes cheap.
    Oil lines NOT. Wow. I can get 3,000 PSI hoses made for my International tracked loader at NAPA for $100.

    Are the prices for the pipes confirmed?

    Air filters $80. That sucks I guess there isn't another option?????

    I want to START out with a kit like yours minus the injectors, fuel pump, HP Tuners, BOV. Save $1105 Just for now. & add E85 injection as a first upgrade step $200 I think.

    That should put the basic hardware at about $2200 for a twin kit.
    Going the single route would save a lot more. Why aren't you looking at that? Price of the single turbo too high?

    If you put the turbos on top will there be room to run an up and down pipe beside the factory exhaust manifold?
