Simple question Tom

What do you suggest/recomend people having already on there car befor coming to you for the full turbo kit with tune? Example like exaust and what not. Turboing is out of reach at the moment but in a year or 2 may come avalibe and I just want to know what you suggest already be on the car for the best results. Thanks

The nice thing about either one of my kits is nothing is realy needed , If one was going to add some mods that were not going to be taken off with the install of the turbo kit

3 Inch Exh

65MM TB

Clutch and Alum Fly

Quaife

Those would be the big things

Thanks for the responce. Now for the 3in exh where does you kits run to? What i mean is does it end at the flex pipe or is that a part of the kit and just need a 3in cat back system. I undersatnd that you can make up to 360 hp on the kit what if i just wanted a 200 whp. Would that still require a new clutch and flywheel? I know it would get better grip and numbers its just something I had never thought of replaceing, I understand the reason just when would the stock setup be of no use when turboing? One last thing what a Quaife? sorry if its a dumb question. thanks

Now for the 3in exh where does you kits run to?
****You will need to address the Exh from the CAT back if you choose to do 3 inch

I undersatnd that you can make up to 360 hp on the kit what if i just wanted a 200 whp.
****My kit will make from 170 to 300, If you only want 200 than set you boost to about 9PSI and have fun

Would that still require a new clutch and flywheel?
****For 200 and daily driving no but beat on it a lot and you will need one

One last thing what a Quaife?
****A Quaife is like a Posi unit for the trans

sorry if its a dumb question.
****There are no dumb questions

Hey Tom, I see that you've listed some parts that could be upgraded for the MTX . . . would there be anything different for the ATX?

Cheers!

I cannot say enough how pleased i am with my Lentech ATX and the work they put out

Anyone with an ATX thinking of modding Lentech has many parts for the street trans and are willing to work with you as to what is needed , Ask for Chris and he will talk to you

while we are on the topic of questions. In the future sometime I would like to go for one of your complete engines with the WRC block. Just as a general quicky pricing, what would the cost be for the WRC block, install, and since i have your full turbo kit already to have the turbo put back on and tuned for the new engine? I dont need an exact price, just a ball park figure to shoot for. Also what time length would you estimate for the work?

Thanks a lot for the info.

The complete engine with CGI and all the goodies is about 5300.00 , Install would be 750.00 and tuning 400.00

There would be some oil , oil filter , Thurmo , Spk Plugs Etc
