Question point me in right direction (s)

Hey guys---sold my blown car and ready to start a turbo project. Ive moved and dont know of any tuner/turbo shops in my area. I live between San Diego and Yuma AZ.

Also--a couple of suggestions on good sources for kits. Planning on just having a daily driver--400-500hp.

If someone could just shout out a shop or two if you are familiar with the area as well as a good site/retailer to get a kit from.

Thanks in advance!

jason

From what Ive read it looks like they have most user friendly kit. I see you purchased one and are working on install. How is everything goin??

How do you feel overall about the fabrication/fit of everything??

Everything about the fit and finish of the kit is pretty awesome. If I had to change anything, it would probably be to have the ability to mount the intercooler lower in order to allow more air to it, and to uncover more of the radiator.

what are you doing about a tune---did you just pull the spout and set the timing at like 15 or what?

also---what are the differences between running a single or twin turbo--if you know of a good site I could go to....or are the people at Hellion pretty good on the phone?

thanks

the difference between a single set up and a twin set up is really preference.....depend's on what you want your engine bay to look like.......i am running twin's on my ride, and i love it to death.........i have some friend's with single's and they love theirs to death.......

Yes, hellion is very good on the phone......i think you will be impressed....

I'm heading to get a tune at Modular Depot in Cincinnati on Saturday. Right now, I've got the timing set at 17 degrees with the spout out. You could call Hellion, they're really nice people, or do some research over at www.turbomustangs.com. Lots of info there, just do some digging.

yes...........very different......hp builds good kit's, but there seem's to be a wait most of the time.......

Hellionpowersystem's is run by john urist and he is an avid stanger.........he claims to keep 10 kit's in stock at all times.........

I have never tried either kit's, but if i was currently shopping for one, i would purchase the hellion kit.....
