do u want to a custom kit or diy kit? One of the first things you have to determine is, how much power do you want?
Power can be addictive.

So you're planning on going FI

Seriously man you need to read up a little bit. And if you want something new for under 4k your not gonna find it. You can probably find a decent kit on the bst forum here for around 2.5k. Good luck. Oh and stock internals on your is around 12 psi depending on what turbo you are running and quite a few other stuff.
