    STS Turbo?

    I was looking at sts's website and while the turbo sounds good at 3,995 dollars I saw that they require you to buy a lot of extras. These push the price up to around 6. What can you do with the base 3995 dollar system and do I need the upgrades at 5psi on a stock motor. All the other turbo and supercharger systems are between 6k and 7k. I just dont see why they advtise for less and hide the cost. If im wrong let me know. Also I would love to here from some of yall that bought this system and see if you recommend it and what you got as far as price out the door. Do I really need all the upgrades at 5psi. My car is a 98 ta what does the new comp do that I have to get.

    5 PSI aint gonna require much but gives you a shot in the pants for sure. I'd go one step colder plug....watch your fuel pressure and AFR.....you can do this with a dyno tune....go have some fun....the basic kit works well...they aren't hiding cost man...they are giving you options....

    7k for an STS that has a bigger turbo, big front mount intercooler, boost controller, and lots of boost versus 7k for a blower or turbo that has the same exact stuff but front mount putting down more power than an STS
