going turbo!

alright i've finally have the money to do it. I'll end up from $3000 to $3800. I want good quality but dont want to drop all 3800 if i dont have to. I already have the fuel and clutch upgrade so i'm just needing to either make/buy a kit. I want to go with a single t62 but other than that i'm not sure where i want to go. I was thinking about investing in a mig welder and mocking it up myself. I need opinions guys and lots of em! Thanks for the input!

new t5 possible t56 is next btw


boss block, tko, turbo, lots of go

Why dont you guys just buy from proturbokits.com or HP turbos... I've heard good comments about both companies, yeah its cheaper to build a kit, but hey i'm just lazy like that... I think proturbo throws a sale out there every once in while as well

Im the king of lazy and cheap lol so what I did was buy a set of turbo header/downpipe combo and did the rest myself. For the cost of a good welder you can pay for the headers and other then the "hot parts" no welding is needed.

It really wasnt as hard as people make it out to be.

I run a 62-1 with a .81 A/R and I LOVE it on my bone stock motor.

Im SURE you can piece together a kit for way less the $3800 !!!

NEVER do business with Sam Rivera AKA Sam Wilson.
