Haha... yeh that's helpful... What's the point in having a turbo if you can't show it off! Sadly, I'm not one for the Sleeper look.


So you do want the turbo for wanky ricer reasons.

Someone picked you up on that before didnt they? :roll:


I'm not talking loud as in BOV loud. Thats f**k gay as. I'm talking loud exhaust, nice note. I get enough attention from coppers as it is with the full sports system on a N/A motor. The added noise of a turbo whine, BOV and louder exhaust note will only make it worse.

Besides, how is that at all helpful to this thread?! Once again, keep your goddamn a*** comments to yourself unless they are actually constructive and helpful in some way.

bear in mind an engine with 280000km on it could well be getting old, so although the engine should stand up to the extra horses just keep in mind that it could be well worn already.

Yeh, that's why I asked th question of building up a motor outside the car. Upside to that is that my car is off the road for a shorter time and I get more time to build the setup... But downside to doing that is that it gives me more time to give up...

Turbo Whine? Ive had 3 turbo falcons, the only whining was from the passenger seat.

The exhaust doesn't need to be louder. Adding the turbo to the exhaust system you have now will make it quieter. BOV's and turbos dont need to be loud either. Add an airbox and plumb back BOV and it wont be noisy at all.

Insulting people isnt going to get you far. Luckily all these questions have been asked a million times before so you dont really need anyone's help.

MoNGoose, I notice people like to attack younger people such as yourself and its happenned in the past simply because they have stupid ideas or no idea whats goin on. You on the other hand, as I have observed since you joined do know what you are on about and deserve more credit so I hope twr7cx will lay off you. Don't take it personally, you'll be the one laughing when you've got the car nice and boosted :).


I've got no beef with him being young - he's only 3 years off my age, 4 in 10 days time! ;-)
But when I've provided a very good argument re the advantages of a Capa kit and the response is some crap about him just loving turbos (despite the fact that it would seem that he's never owned one previously) - to me it gives a strong time waster impression - or at least that he's not actually interested in hearing anything that doesn't confirm what he's actually wanting to hear... anyways, his car, his money (or lack of it), his choice.

Again, CAPA would probably be the best in SA for this stuff. They've got a s**t load of experience regarding boost - think about it for a second, they produce all these supercharger kits, they also do a s**t load of turbo stuff, and the flash tuners for BA's etc. Maybe you should check out there site, might answer some of your questions...

Going on from this - have you got some insurance quotes for your car once it's turbo'd. It might end up costing you more than the turbo itself.

Also as someone said above, have you considered selling your car and buying one somebody has already done? There's a turbo EB or ED or something on here asking 7 grand - which is about what you'll end up paying - so your getting the car and stereo for free in one way of looking at it...

Once again... thanks for the smart a*** comments and stating the obvious. So far you have managed to put up the most posts in this thread without actually answering my questions. All you've done is put me down, basically call me an idiot for even thinking of doing it and promoted your love for superchargers. I've checked out Capa's site many many times, I've also checked out my mate's AU III XR6 with a Powerdyne kit fitted. I just don't like them. My car, my money ("or lack of it") my choice.

I wouldn't bother - this is my personal opinion as I have no problem flogging motors and reguarly toping up oil. From what I've seen lately you can get falcon engines for as cheap as $100 second hand now (4.0L I6 SOHC). Worst case is when your donk goes you get another one for dirt cheap. If your only putting low boost it shouldn't be putting much more strain on it - driving style dependent of course...

Seriously man, get over it, how do you cop at school if you cannot handle a couple of smart a*** comments - thats life, now go and take off your skirt, dry your eyes (yes., that's another comment). If you look beyond them, there's plenty of answers to.
