    School me on turbo kits, not saying I plan on doing this but just wondering does this kit include everything I would need?

    Well, to be straight up with everyone, I am sick of seeing people pay up to 4 grand for a turbo kit that gets your 72 whp, I know, If I paid that much for a kit Id expect to see much better gains, with much better products. This is why I am going to be offering a kit for the 2.0 lancer platform, it is going to include:

    (1) 16g Mitsubishi Tdo5h Turbo-Brand New(1) (1) 7 psi actuator w/mbc
    (1) Stainless steel log style manifold w/gaskets
    (1) Greddy Type rs bov - Brand New
    (4) 460cc High Impedance Injectors
    (1) SS oil feed & return Kit
    (1) 16 High power slim fan
    (1) walbro 255lph fuel pump
    (1) A2 Design's Fpr with gauge
    (1) A2 Designs intake kit
    (1) 2.5" SS Downpipe with flex kit, direct bolt on to exhaust.
    (1) 28.25x7.5x2.5 Front Mount Intercooler
    (1) 2.5" charge pipe from turbo to intercooler
    (1) 2.5" charge pipe from intercooler to Tb
    (1) acc. kit with all bolts and misc. items.

    Some background information about why I choose to do this kit, and items included:

    1.Turbo-This Big 16g turbo is a great turbo, its internal wastegate is set at 7 psi w/mbc so you can crank it up. Much better than the t25 turbos others offer!

    2. Fuel- I choose to include everything to correctly tune a turbo system, not just some fuel management unit
    that has a set ratio, this will be safer for your engine, and will net better gains.

    3. This is going to be a complete kit, not something that needs to be welded up, or is missing parts.

    4. This kit will only require you to have an safc/emanage/standalone.

    5. Please allow 1-2 weeks to be shipped.

    6. If you are 03+ Instead of the Fpr I will include a boost gauge instead.

    I am by no means an expert on turbo kits but I messed with an engine swap/turbo project in the past. First thing you have to learn is that there is no such thing as a complete turbo kit. You will always need some small parts and fabrication to get that thing in your car.

    Couple of things I have seen from your post:
    1- Log style manifods don't distrubute the exhause pressure evenly so try to get even lenght horn style manifold
    2- Try to get 3" piping.
    3- What kind of engine management system are you going to run??? (FMU might be a cheap solution but it might create more head ache then getting a good system)

    Good luck and I hope you know what you are getting your self into.

    How are you planning to meter the increased airflow?

    Think about heat shields, changes in PCV system (don't pressurize the crank case).

    FMU's are not very efficient in maintaining a just richer than stoic AFR

    Ive done these MItsu builds before.
    Youll definately need some sort of fuel management. I used a MAFT
    it worked quite well, and was inexpensive.

    Whatever you're planning on spending on the kit, have double that in the bank, because you're going to need more parts (Management), fabrication, and to replace parts that start breaking from the increased stress.

    If you have $3k to spend, and the kit is $3k, don't bother. It'll be more headaches then it's worth.

    the kit I posted was roughly 3300 Canadian silly question but this would defintly void warrenty correct?

    Good point, no one would notice the bung welded into the oil pan for the turbo's oil feed line...

    :rofl:


    If your engine blows and they inspect it, they can tell you had boost in less then a second. If you are not going to build your engine for boost, it will slowly tear your engine a part. Studs, headgasket, pistons rings, etc... will all show signs of high pressure. Even if you run the boost less then 7psi.

    If this is your daily driver don't bother with Turbo.

    Sometimes they plain don't care. My buddy blew the transmission in his car and brought it to the dealer on drag slicks. They covered it no problem.

    I don't count on second-hand one-offs when it comes to expensive repairs on my daily driven vehicle. ;)

    I've never seen a bung welded to a drain pan for an oil feed line....

    I've seen one for an oil drain line however:D

    And like i said, if he can return the car to stock, which would include swapping out the oilpan.

    couldn't agree more, if you don't have something else to drive when it breaks, then leave it the fuck alone.

    Feeds the oil back into the pan... arguing semantics = very internet-y.
