MAXX svt boost

I am looking at getting an SVT in the near future. If i do get one i will be getting a turbo kit for it. But i was wanting to know how well does the stock parts take the turbo? What could i take the turbo up to and not lose daily driveabilty? I am thinking about a non intercooler kit.


Please any help or any link would be great.

Are these cars hard to install a turbo on? the only install i have done was on an old civic that you could stand in the engine bay it had so much room.

they are still easy.

as for the boost, its not a measure of boost but power, the svt can DD 300/300 whp/wtq all day, and have been pushed farther. depending on turbo, cause a 2554 w/ 20 psi is not the same as a 4076 on 20 psi. but you NEEEEEED an intercooler! end of story!! yo don't wanna blow up ur motor cause of not getting an IC for like 200 bucks! don't skimp out!

Ok its set then i think i will get one. If i go the hole turbo route then do i even need to waste my time getting an svt. If i go turbo the i can make up that extra 30-40 the svt would get me.

or get just the zx3 and upgrade to the svt parts cause people with the svt for sale wants like 5-7k for a 8 year old car with 100k miles.


What do you guys say? svt and then turbo and by by 10k? or zx3 and turbo and by by 5-6 k

SVT has oil squirter's, and stronger internals. plus 6speed, and better suspension. if you have the money for an SVT i think thats the better option.
