Want to go turbo but ?

I love turbo cars and always wanted one. Right now I have a fox with hci and a Powerdyne that only makes 4lbs. I have been looking at some of the cheaper kits. Also looking at used vortech kits. Can I put a turbo kit together for around the same cost of a vortech kit. Oh and still Runing a stock block.

Same here. I went from a Vortech s-trim to a on3 kit. The power comes on so much harder and faster with the turbo.

ebay that powerdyne, you'll be surprised what you get out of it. Fab the kit on your own and build it for less than 1k. You won't regret it, this is the 2nd fox I've taken from blower to turbo and there will be more!
