reading is fundamental 91sentra:

"Specs: TSI Turbo Kit GA16DE W/T20 Turbo - Complete Bolt on Turbo Kit with Intercooler
Part #: NS2001X
Status: IN STOCK"

taken directly from the website. T20 turbo.

it's a crap kit, period.

Honestly I think the fuel management or lack thereof is what makes it "generic" hell they even call their instructions that themselves. At any rate people that are taken by this kit generally do not know enough to set the ffuel system up right, this is why I feel it is garbage. Anyone that knows how to design their own setup and fuel management can either work around the pitfalls of this kit or they can deisgn their own.

Wouldnt it be easier to swap the motor out and put in a bluebird? or do you have to chage to trans too?
The BB swap costs a bit more than a 1.6 turbo setup. You'll need the engine, tranny, axles, ECu, and a bunch of other miscellaneous parts.

The 'Superior' kit sounds like an 'intro to turbos' setup. Besides, with such a tiny turbo, how long will it be before you aren't satisfied and end up going larger (We all know you'll want to go bigger :p)

The Extreme sounds like a 'Ghetto' HS without the proper fuel management.

The others are right, I'd def. stay away from it 'as is'.

The only good- if it could be called that- which I see out of either system would be if you used to JGY ECU but even then I'd worry about the quality of the parts.

Either kit leaves a few questions unanswered. What size injectors are you getting? How much boost would you be able to hold? Last but not least, where's some Dyno #s. Can't trust a turbo setup without the necessary testing to prove its effectiveness.

I was actually looking at these because they were cheaper than the HS kit. But after spending lots of time researching here, I've learned that you really can't cut corners for a turbo application that runs flawlessly.

well that was the one thing that i was really worried about was the fuel management. but with the hs you get jwt wich is a nicely recomended brand all across the net with possitive outcomes. i would do the bb swap but i just rebuilt my motor with. new crank bearings, connecting rod bearings, honed block, new rings, full head/valve job, port an polish. so im setup with almost a new motor pretty close for me. so i figured it was time for a turbo. i had looked befor but not so hard cause well i had way too many miles on my car.
