Doing a google and found that snort performance make a turbo kit for fords from ea to au.
Im looking into the possibility of ordering a stage 3 for my au xr6, here is what they have listed;
Stage 3 Turbo Kit

Base Turbo Kit Features:
1 x full custom s/steel tuned length turbo manifold
1 x 40mm polished wastegate
1 x Garrett to4e turbocharger (rated over 500hp)
1 x super billet b.o.v
1 x boost reference fuel regulator
1 x front mount intercooler (core size 600x300x76)
3 inch s/steel dump pipe with o2 sensor bung
1 1/2 inch s/steel screamer pipe (from wastegate)
Teflon braided oil feed lines, vclamps, oil sender t
Teflon oil drain lines gaskets and fittings
3 inch pod filter
Price: $3999.00 + $125.00 shipping

All items are brand new and covered by 12 month manufacturer warranty.

Just wondering has any one here actually got one?
Whats the quality like?
Does the kit come with everything you need? or do you need extra bits?
What does it cost to get someone to install it?
Do you need a custom ecu or a piggy back chip?
Will i need to strengthen my engine for a turbo?
What increase in extra HP/kw should i expect?

Well i think i got most of it covered
Cheeers

Just wondering has any one here actually got one? - A few of the guys on here do.

Whats the quality like? - Jeffs kits r very good quality

Does the kit come with everything you need? or do you need extra bits? - u need extra bits ie. i/c & piping and depending on how much power u wand ecu? injectors? etc etc

What does it cost to get someone to install it? - How long is a piece of string????

Do you need a custom ecu or a piggy back chip? - U can run 6ish psi no probs with std ecu any more & ur better off looking aftermarket

What increase in extra HP/kw should i expect - i dunno 6psi say 180-200rwkw. And as an example i think aarons car is running 451rwkw??? So if u want and got some $$$ to spend u can go nuts.

Will i need to strengthen my engine for a turbo? - I believe stock internals will hold 10psi no probs correct me if im wrong ppl. But everyone would suggest a copper head gasket from an au.

This thread might help u a bit http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=39773

mates au with stage 3 runnin 9 psi on standard motor and standard ecu with a flash tuner ran 250rwkw for 3 months then started to have massive blow by then went BANG!
pulled motor apart had 6 totalled pistons and block was beyond repair. thats not to mention the gearbox that went bang three days after getting turbo'd and the 1000 dollar clutch that slipped on occasion. but then i have talked to some people who has done similar things and is still goin.

sound like it wasn't tuned right, stock motor should live for years on 9psi.
