as im currently after more power i was going to go down the line of jsut keepin it an na6 and trying to get about 160-170rwkw, but then saw these kits on the net and it got me keen on turboing, can u guys tell me if these kits are any good, is the turbo in the stage 3 kit rubbish i have been told they are so i was gona go the stage 4 but i dont really want to have to. as the stage 3 kit seems to be very sufficient for wat i want also wat esle would b recommended with these kits, ie; ecu, cam,pistons etc, i wont b going totally nuts 350rwkw monster i want 190-200 rwkws , ive been askin lots of questions bout cams etc the last few days but in the end hanging a turbs off the side is so much more appealing :D than just a cam and ecu upgrade. any help much app guys
heres the websit with the diff trubo kits available.

I ran one of Snorts earlier stage one kits, it was very similar to the stage 3 (turbo, fuel reg, wastegate) but was with the log style manifold. It made 220rwkw on my 260,000k engine, and I did a little over 12,000k's with it until I decided to upgrade for more power.
The turbo, and everything else in the kit was of good quality, and I never had any trouble with any of the Snort hardware..
I'm now running another kit from Snort and have done over 10,000ks also with no dramas.
The guys from snort are good honest people to deal with, you wont get ripped off, they are very customer focused.

Good luck with it all. 180kw is a realistic figure for a stock engine and no after market ecu.

I have now got about 38,000 k's on snort hardware. With LPG, poor tuning and limited knowledge.

I fitted it myself (and probably only did an average job)

The hardware has been faultless, Snort have been extremely helpful at every step of the way.

with 12 month warranty on hardware (something no one else offered) and competetive pricing I cant complain.

I had a couple of small problems with my kit when it first arrived but were fixed by Snort with a minimum of fuss. Had it on for must be 12 months now without a drama.

Also just wondering what they were.
Did you get in contact with snort about them?
The only reason I ask, is there is an overwhelming amount of happy snort customers on here, and yours has really been the only negative comment
