OK guys this is what i have, I have a AU XR6 motor in my XH ute and thinking about either Supercharge or Turbo i know most will say Turbo better and for performance so what sort of $$$$ u think I would be up for and would I have to rebuild my motor or can it bolt straight on, if wont more power Im guessing rebuild motor but looking more for the straight bolt on, would you recomend changing fuel lines for this and injectors if so what do you use anything would be much great to know Thanx :evil:

depends how much you wanna DIY. I went with Capa's powerdyne kit as it includes everything I need and all I had to do was follow the instructions, makes me feel like I've had input into doing it, and saves a lot of stress!
I don't believe anybody supplies a full turbo kit, Snort Performance kits provide the basics, but rely on you to sort out your own intercooling, ECU and fuel setups.

i have been looking into this heaps lately, and i have worked out about 7-8k dollars for a bolton turbo set up from snortperformance, with that money its full ems dyno'd etc etc....

+ more once its in and i start braking things due to power.

i'd add more on for hidden expenses, they'll be plenty.

no none what so ever, you pay 7K for the kit, but no performance increase... 8-) bit of a stupid question there mate.

i think the capa kits give roughly 180rwkw
