quick question... i know its cheaper to piece together a turbo setup rather than buy a kit. can anyone suggest what parts to use that would end up being the cheapest overall? im lookin for about 400whp
thanx

Trust me don't go cheap on a VRT they don't like it. I had a Stg 3 eip system on mine and pulled 384whp. Plus with a turbo you'll need software to. You just can't slap a turbo on and go doesn't work that way. Plus if you don't do it right you'll blow your engine. Don't cheap out when it comes to that. Not worth it in the long run. Plus at 400whp you'll need to think about beefing up your tranny also. I had to do a 02m 24v swap on mine. Also total you'll be looking at least 5-6k

yea i know i need software to go along with the hardware. i drive a BT 337, so i know a lil somethin about turbo setups. but isnt the C2 software like 350$ or somethin?
