long story short i am about to get an ED 4L auto base model, I am thinking about going the forced induction route, but want a honest factual real life cost of what i can safely do for the least money.

thanks,
Rob.

Considering I've seen several full kits go for <$1250 in the last 3 months (manifold, turbo, dump pipe, fuel pump, cooler, piping... etc)
I'd say you could have a turbo'd E series for under 2 grand.

Exactly tickford_6

Everyone wants to get out of everything cheaper then it ends up paying more for repairs and whatever else goes wrong instead of paying for the good gear from the start.

i spent around 10k on mine.

thats buying snort kit
fixing motor(reco head,water pump blah blah)
ems ecu
paying someone to do all work
piping
injectors
fuel pump
water lines
tune.

if i didnt pay someone to do it and skimped on some things probably could have got away with 6k

thanks guys, the thing im worried about is the cheap kits you see floating around on ebay etc, they seem great for around 2000 but im sure they need a lot more. im not looking to run 11's or anything but i dont want a handgrenade either.
im not sure of my budget yet, but it will be a slow build up over the next year or so.

thanks for giving me an idea.

keep em coming guys.

A awsome turbo kit that a would buy is from these 2 guys. Awsome work at a good price for what your getting.

Plenty of information in the thread and u will quickly notice that the extra money is well worh it. Not only will it perform alot better, its durable, reliable, it lasts and also looks alot better.

I would consider the first 2 kits

kits are available at competitive rates including
600hp garrett gt3582r,tial44mm wastegate and manifold $3295
800hp garrett to4z, 44mm tial wastegate and manifold $3600
1000hp garrett t51r 48mm turbosmart wastegate and manifold $4100(add $200 for turbosmart 50mm gate)
1000hp garrett gt4202r 48mm turbosmart wastegate and manifold $4100(add $200 for turbosmart 50mm gate)

I would rather pay triple the money and get brand new gear with warranty and will out perform AIT kit.

Wahhh time bomb.
So every 2nd hand turbo is a time bomb? Every 2nd hand kit is a time bomb? FFS they dont sell for much second hand because the s**t not that expensive to start with.

If you want new you can buy a kit from Snort for <$4k with pretty much everything you'll need (other than ECU).

The thing is, once you start, and if your happy, you won't stop. Which = a big money pit.

Either that or you will give up and sell the s**t for 3/4-1/2 the price you payed for it.

Doing it for under $2000 ain't gona happen.
