I'm using pieces of the club NA-T / XS power kit. I have about 1000 miles so far no issues. The kit is very incomplete , the down pipe that came with it went in the trash, the manifold works but had to move the break lines out of the way , lots of fabrication went toward making everyone fit . At low boost no complaint. I had a professional instal so they pretty much rip the kit apart and replaced some things. I took the 13lbs spring out and put a 8lbs spring fromtial. I think the turbo manifold and wastegate are okay at low boost. The kit is just the manifold,turbo , wastegate ,BOV, and some oil feed lines and fittings . You will have to purchase everything else seperately. Get SRT if you can. My build could of been a train wreck if my shop didn't know what they were doing.

i thought this kit comes with everything you would need to turbo an is300... ?

Read a couple posts up, I have already answered that.

Yes it is everything to go turbo.

But if you are looking for more than 350RWHP you need to uprade other things to your car. That being said it is not everything to go beyond that point.

NEED HELP! Is this good or not?

I have a 2005 is300 with 60,000 miles on it. Its an auto and I have wanted to boost it for the longest time. I don't want a monster just something fun to drive around. I have a little knowledge about boost but nothing major. After talking to a few people they recommended me a shop and this is what they sent me. My car is currently all stock and i need to know if this is a good deal, will it hold up, any flaws or concerns you guys see? They have said it'll take about a week. Thank you guys for your help!

From mechanic: The entire kit I can get for $2100. There are cheaper kits out there but I wouldn't be able to warranty them. The cheaper ones use universal fit parts that have to be cut and modified to fit. Also they are a lot lower quality and may crack under high temperatures. I'm only charging $1000 for labor since you were referred by another customer of mine! If you would like the car dyno tuned i would be able to that for an additional $1000! What i mean by this is computer and engine management by Greddy or the use of an SAFC. If you would prefer something else we could do that also. Dyno time would be included in that and would probably need the car for several more days to make an appointment with our dyno guy! The kit will be ok to drive on without the tuning and will be safe on low boost. The tuning is to get the maximum power on your setup while maintaining reliability for daily use. If you dont have the cash to do this right off the bat your setup will be just fine without the fine tuning!

Cheap Quality Turbo Kit

As the title states, I am looking for a cheap turbo kit that still is of good quality. I have been wanting to get the SRT turbo kit but they are running around 6k, and at this moment I do not have 6 grand to spend on a turbo. If anyone has had any luck with a cheaper kit I would greatly appreciate the information.

Thanks,
Robert

Before you get flamed--
IMO the people that ask this question inherently cannot have this request- let me explain.

There will be those that would say what you want is impossible, or a catch-22. I believe what they mean, is that if you have to ask, then you do not have the capability to pull it off.

The kits that are pricy, are not pricy because they use over-kill top of the top shelf parts, but have had the foresight and experience put into them that they work darn well. They are application and time tested.

To do it cheaply- it is somewhat possible. But there are two types- those who pull it off because they have the knowledge, and therefore do not even have to ask where such a kit is, or how to build one. Then there are those who ask, get pissed when people give them good honest advice that is not what they want to hear, and then for the next year we follow their build thread of epic fail as almost every part they buy fails, performs badly or simply won't do the job and they make constant mistakes be it wiring, bad sensor placement, bad component placement etc etc. And then they end up paying just as much over this period of time to make it work as it would have costed to do it right the first time, and/or the car gets put up for sale.

So one is left with two options. 1) pay to play 2) buy some books, do a lot of studying on the subject and become capable of doing it yourself- and in the process learn why those who can, do not roll out the red carpet for those who can't or 3) Jump into it and 'fall down the stairs' into pain so to speak.

Don't get me wrong, there will be those who said they bought "X" cheep kit and everything is great, but take everything with a grain of salt-- they may have a lot of ability, lots of little odds and ends in their garage that for those who don't, it adds up- they often have a mechanic friend or family member, can weld, have awesome fabbing friends, friends in the industry etc, and for all we know they got a great kick-back when buying the kit/parts and they are simply talking it up for that reason. Anyhow, do enough searching around here and I doubt you can refute these points, but rather totally agree with them. If you have the luxury of learning the "hard way", then I say go for it-- its great to learn, and your better off in the end gaining all that knowledge than not at all.

Quoted for epicness. It should be sticky'd...Then again, no one reads the sticky's. Why do I say that? Cause threads like this are created at least once every couple weeks.

help with selecting a turbo for my goals

I did some searching and can't seem to narrow it down to what turbo to go with for the goals that I'm looking for. I'm not looking to make any crazy power since this is my daily driver. I'd like to stay in the 350 - 400 whp so that I can retain some of the stock parts for the time being. I'm looking for some suggestions for my goals - low to mid spool that will support my hp goals (not ball bearing), def not a top end turbo, I don't plan on making too many highway pulls. Something for good acceleration. My brother has been suggesting the 16G or a 20G Mitsubishi turbos - is anybody familiar with running these on the GE/GTE? Any other suggestions for what I'm looking to do? I like the Precision turbos but there's so many to choose from.

If you run a 16g or 20g on this engine you deserve to be slapped. a 16g or 20g turbo is way way way way to small and you will have that turbo choked off at 2000rpms it will not be able to keep with this engine. Just buy a $500 china T04E turbo and in the mean time do alot more research on this.

16 g will be too small, but 20g will do just fine... But I will recommend buying a precision turbo from SRT
