well there is no list that can cover everyone. some want more power than others. but basically...with a turbo you can't make the exhaust too big. do not buy a header or cai if you are serious about going turbo. you will want to upgrade your fuel injectors, fuel pump, and maybe your fuel rail(depends on the injector size). you would want to either lighten your stock flywheel or buy an aftermarket fly wheel bc it helps boost kick in faster bc of less rotating mass...also upgrade the clutch. i'm not sure how extreme you will have to go with the clutch...but if i ever boosted i would go with the act 6 puck disk and extreme pressure plate. you will definitely want some slicks or drag radials for running at the track. definitely have jwt put the turbo program on your ecu plus the basic service...also cams and the cam program for the ecu. this is all the things i can think of for a basic/mild turbo set up. if you want to go to more extremes then there are more things you need to do. if i left anything out someone chime in.

the hotshot kit comes with a manifold for a t3 right? what i was going to do when i get the cash is buy the kit that comes with everything except the turbo itself, and go find a ballbearing t3/t4. can someone back the size of the flange on the manifold up?

well if you think about it...mike young had boost set at 6 or 7 psi..i think 6...when he made the dyno run everyone knows about. also that was with a small downpipe and 2" exhaust. if you went to a 2.5" or 3" exhaust, and got rid of the cat....imagine how much hp that would free up plus the extra boost you could add with a different maf. i believe 200hp is very reachable. when i first saw that dyno chart i was very discouraged and was going to do the swap. but now that i think about all the mods that were missing to make max hp out of that engine...im seriously considering sticking with the ga platform.

no doubt..thats why people step up to t4, t60, t71 turbos. if you run high boost on a small turbo the wheel will be going so fast it will negate the advantage of the turbo by making the air so hot it causes damage.

eh...well it depends if you want new or used. hks has what is the equivalent of a t28 and it's around $1500. ball bearing turbos are seriously expensive, but bc there is less friction occuring they make more hp.

lubricates it, but if you are lazy [or absent minded] and shut off the car without letting it idle for a few minutes to cool the red hot turbo, the engine oil literally "cooks" on the shaft inside the turbo. This cokes up the shaft, and in turn destroys the seals. [/B]


ah the joys of modern technology...ie. turbo timers
