the kits are very good pricing specialyl if you compare them to boreadore turbo kits...up round double the price hehe.


thats because they are a V6 and require two manifolds and two turbos... meaning more work and more oil drain lines etc... or if they run a single the pipe work is very intricate.... they are not double the price just because they are commonwhores but because the design is not real great to turbo cheaply...
still cop it to the commonwhore drivers who havta pay more lol@!!!!!

yeah i know i have to get injectors and a fuel pump but is there really that much more?


You'll need to factor in (some of these things have been mentioned already) :

- Upgraded brakes if needed
- Cost of Engineering to pass rego
- Making sure you can get insurance
- Upgraded injectors
- Fuel Pump
- The rest of the piping needed
- Upgraded exhaust

NOT exactly only one needs to be changed on single turbo, just fab Xover pipe to turbo side...Depending on configuration of intercooler a xover pipe maybe required also on the cold side...
