Hey guys...round and round I go.....first Im gonna DET....now im looking at just bolting up DET parts to my DET...Fawk..im so indecisive. Well anyways...just wondering if anybody knows where I can order the conversion parts ( Turbo, Manifold, injectors, piping, intercooler..etc... ) I have to order these all from a reptuable shop/store thats takes a credit card. I figure with how much it should cost me to Turbo my DE ( not counting the big kits like Fmax or Hotshot ) I'd be able to save myself some cash. My quote from SR20 for motor and all the things I was gonna need plus install...would be about 5 grand. Worse case scenario if my 95,000 mile motor goes bad I can purchase a low mileage DE for 500/600 bucks and move the parts over. but yeah...where can I buy all this ish? Thanks guys!

Irwin! Sounds like a good idea...too bad I don't have that option. :(

Anyways, hit up www.nismoparts.com and get the T28 turbo and GTI-R manifold, that should be a grand right there.

Hit up FTF for 370cc (or 50lb/hr) injectors, fuel pump and fuel rail, about $500.

JWT ECU $600

FMIC and piping...let's say $300

Downpipe...eh, $300 (I think the SR20Dev one will fit too, but not sure)

Other random **** and tapping the block for oil return line will cost you around another $500-$600

So, that's about $3k there and you should easily have low 13s. Larry has this set up and the last time he hit up the track hit a 13.4 @ 104 with a crappy 2.0 60' on slicks. Oh and that was only 8psi on 91 octane gas. He also had a bunch of tools and other stuff in his car weighing it down...including a baby seat!

Good luck man!

the Hotshot kit is $3299 for everything BUT the JWT ECU, so total, you would be looking @ approx $3900 for the complete setup, redline also has a kit for $3600 http://www.cnw.com/~redline/SE-Rturbo.htm

AND this has the ECU, so here are some more things to consider and confuse...

the only problem i see with the hotshot kit is the manifold may be prone to cracking (not sure, judging this from my supposedly crack resistant G3 header replete with long crack in the weld between the primaries) and that it is a kinda bubba setup, as in it uses what i have heard to be an antique turbo.

i haven't heard anything about the redline setup, anyone have any clues? comments? found the meaning of life?

F-Max kit

If your going to just turbo your ser motor than I would go with the F-Max kit. I personaly know all the guys over at f-max and know what kind of work they do. They are a small shop over by my house and put alot of time into every kit. My friend that worked there is doing my kit on my DET motor for free. F-Max is by far better than any other kit for the DE. I also know what you should do if your going to do your kit.

All i got is time

Hey if you can, wait and watch. I waited all summer, and now i am reaping the benifits. I will be putting a f-max stage 2 togeather for about 3000.00. A little better than the 5000.00 they want.

good choice

The full F-Max kit is only 3200.00. But you can pretty much do your own bad ass kit for about the same price.

$3200!!! are you shitting me?

everytime i have looked it was at least $4000 for the stage 1 kit!

could you divulge as to how this kit can be scored for $3200? i am for sure goin turbo in a few weeks to a month, and was just about sold on going with a T28 GTiR setup boosting about 1 bar, but if the F-MAX setup is $3200, i will most definetly go for it!

F-Max kit

F-Max is right here by my house, I know all the guys over there. I get cost on all there parts. But that still didnt make me tubo my stock motor. I still went with the DET motor. There is so much more you can do with that set up in the long run. Its by far the better option.
