Ask zx3ford... he knows.

But I bet his answer is:

Step 1. Buy new turbo kit.

It's a decent hardware kit.

If you are looking for no more than 165ishwhp, then go ahead. Buy a SCT chip and get it tuned and you will have a decent kit.

Only problem I see with it, is there is no room to grow. But some people don't mind that.

With that in mind, yes 1100 is a decent deal for the whole kit. Add a $400 chip and you're set.

Yea, 1100 is pretty good deal for the kit. I sold a brand new Gude kit some time ago for 1600. As long as you can get the kit tuned right, you'll be fine. Most problems people had were because they ran the kit w/o right tuning - which was advertised as "OK" by the manufacturer...

I'd think that $1100 is worth it for the piping, injectors, MAF and turbo even if you are gonna use the parts for a DIY turbo kit. $1100 is what Tom charges for just his big FMIC set up.
