Plumbing

Where can i get cheap plumbing because i want to by a junkyard turbo that is rebuilt and use that but i need all the parts for it. How much more would a intercooler be. I am new to this part of the forum and if I misphrased something or something does not make sense just ask me about it.

can you go to a place that does exhaust and get them to do some bends for you with exhaust pipes? I know they are crush bent and won't be the tightest bends but you can go with a little larger pipe to make up for the bend. Or isn't there places online where you can order just the pipes prebent with a mandrel. Not sure, just asking. It is FI so it will force the air thru

wow... good luck on that plan.. yikes.. I would say just find a used jrsc, that would be better than what you plan on doing (money wise). That should get you SOMEWHERE close to those numbers.. I think you may want to do a little more research before you spend your money on that stuff..

Turbo+Cheap=nothing but troubles. What kind of manifold do you plan to use? Tunin is going to cost you a minimum or $600-$1000 and thats just getting started.

If your on a tight budget, go with the JR supercharger.

You will need larger injectors, larger mass air, and a chip tuned by a reputable tuner.
