Hey i found a turbo im looking at buying with the following specs, it seems about right for a 4l but thought id better double check anyway.

T4, V-flange, divided tang, 70mm compressor inlet, 50mm compressor outlet, 0.60 A/R compressor 1.05 A/R turbine. Basically a 60-1 Perfect

its be perfect providing you a) can get insurance, b) your car is already lowered, c) brake upgrade already done and d) you dont expect a large boost or your engines internals wont like it.

finished & installed your looking at the 6-9k mark.

I noticed in the side thing you are 17 the only, if you want insurance on a turbo car expect to either get

1. 3rd Party about $700
2. Full Comp absolute MINIMUM $2000+

Theres no way around it, trust me i've tried :cry: , and you can't put it under parents name either basically the only company that will insure you are just car insurance.

if the turbo your talking about is an XS power branded one off ebay or even worse has no name cast onto it read this first - http://www.fordmods.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2331

im pretty much planning the same DIY thing, so the cost is spread as far apart as possible, and so im off my P's
