Default Is this overpriced for a complete turbo kit?

Is it a good kit? How much would it cost if I was to buy another kit and then get it tuned? What do I need to do to the stock engine before going turbo? Here's the link to the turbo kit I'm looking at

Hey man,I didnt look at your link provided.

However,prior to bolting any forced induction applications to a NA motor a few factors must be addressed.

1st, compression level's,there is a few options here, either double up on your standard head gasket or purchase a aftermarket one that will lower your current rate.

2nd,Fuel system, your car is not equipped to cope with the extra demand of fuel,you will have to replace injectors plus (optional) Rising rate fuel regulator.And HIGHLY recomend a fuel pump.

3rd,you will have to get your car tuned be it with a flash style maintaining factory ECU,or a piggy back system that would control just the Air/Fuel/Spark/Timing, or a complete stand alone unit.

4thtake into account the fact your car wasnt meant to travel at near double the power output from factory,so little things that SHOULDN'T be overlooked are BRAKES,Driveshaft's,Diff,and little niggly bits.

What i have mentioned above (To me is the PROPER/SAFER option) but there are workshops who will tell you it will be fine,just dont run over 8-9psi, im a strong believer in doing it right the 1st time.

It may be cheaper to purchase a damaged car of same style and transplant all there "Expensive/hard work" rather than spending $1000's on things one would usually over look..

Honestly think long & hard about it prior to jumping head 1stmy friend...

All the best with your decision...

That's because that's a true complete kit. You could literally install the kit on and run. Or if that's too expensive, just remember what that kit includes and source out individual parts for cheaper (of course, 1000cc injectors are overkill for stock motors but great for potential down the road). Only name brand you gotta worry about is the actual turbo, wastegate, and the bov.
