Ive been running a Snort stage 4 kit with the KKK turbo for about 6 months now. No problems with the turbo however the wastegate failed after 4 months and I upgraded to a Turbosmart unit for piece of mind. Speak to Geoff about maybe getting a decent brand wastegate and paying a bit more or just leaving it off and take the difference off the price, that way you can shop around for your own.

youl need a 3 inch exhaust from the dumpipe and a cat if u dont wana get stung. youl then either need to get a chip torque chip or if your going the stage 4 kit id suggest buying a new ECU to run the booste. maybe a wolf 3d? youd then need to get it dyno tuned and get a engener certifict on the work that has been done. umm youd probably wana upgrade your Pistons to stronger ones.... maybe an ACL kit. the kit is $3000 correct? after everything you will most likely be looking at $5000 +

Not really, once u have the kit, injectors, and pump, along with your ecu all you need is to get someone to plumb it all up. Speak to pete from newcastle muffler services at gateshead. Hes doing mine, $1100 for turbo flange, dump, cat, exhaust all 3inch, and piping from turbo to cooler, and to t/b. He does very good quality work also.

how much power are the kits rated at? i'm throwing up options in the air for the future and if i turboed an EF would be looking for about 250kW.
the kits are very good pricing specialyl if you compare them to boreadore turbo kits...up round double the price hehe.
