Re: THE Forced Induction Review Thread

Well i suppose i should chime in!

parts:
Precision SC34 turbo t3/t4 63 a/r,
precision 1000cc injectors
GM MAF
MSD ignition system (external coil, wires, plugs etc)
Tial 38mm Wastegate
Tial 50mm BOV
Electronic Boost Controller
Precision Intercooler (frontmount)
Custom IC piping/2.5"exhaust/downpipe/dumptube/etc.
AEM EMS
ERL sleeves
Crower Rods
JE pistons
JGengineDynamics Valves
Bisimoto valve springs and retainers
valve job
NGK spark plugs
(could be missing something but IDK..... lol)

Price paid and from where: Everything way too much, lost track a long time ago hahaha, but the turbo kit alone, w/o injectors, MAF, ignition, etc. about 4.5k

HP/TQ Gains: stock is 120ish so i would say over 200whp and 200wtq but run about 330+whp/wtq (that's just for now.... more to come in the spring '09!)

Pros: amazing to drive, fun as hell, there is no other feeling like 16-17psi trust me.... and the ability to surprise many people.... priceless.

Cons: well the turbo kit alone, nothing really, just can't run long straight runs under boost otherwise your piston rings give out, and its a real headache what i went through

Final verdict: fantastic.... well worth it, and going to continue to go for more! If you are going to boost (specifically f23) be careful, get it tuned right by the right people, our piston rings are very weak when it comes to boost, and when they go sometimes other things do to. It's okay to drag with boost but no road racing or anything likewise unless built. Overall well worth the money and time!

Research, Research, Research before you do anything, so you don't get screwed over by anyone, and know exactly what is going on and what is being done to your car, especially in choosing parts!
