So for the same 4k som of you are talking about spending for a turbo kit I can spend the same money and get the same if not close to the same power gains for the same price.
I'm not sure you can get to 200whp with those mods... And given the cossie rarity you'll probably go over the 4k mark... And with a stage 2 turbo, you'll be over 200whp with plenty room to grow...

To the OP.. Go boost.. You'll never go back trust me.
