If you do that kit and dont buy some form of tuning you will kill the engine , They will tell you it isnt needed and the crappy 5th and 6th injector will work but it isnt safe and will in the end hurt your engine

Hey duffman I will tell you the same thing I tell everyone else in your situation DONT GO CHEAP!! Its the biggest mistake you will ever make especially when doing something as big as a turbo. So to answer your question will a turbo fry your engine? Only if you go the cheap route and dont get exactly what you need to do it right the first time. Trust me.

And when he said a tune he meant a computer chip tuned for the turbo set up.

depends on the turbo you use.

Im using the GT28 and running 10psi peak boost then it drops to 6psi, its a very safe setup intercooled and with the det proventing aquamist water injection setup. 250-260BHP at the fly should be safe on stock internals on 98(RON UK) 93(PON US) but you'll need a very good tune/map to insure that the engine wont go pop at high speeds

take toms advice, if you go cheap on the kit AT LEAST spend the money on the tune.

zx3duffman: Judging by the questions you are asking, you need to do a lot more research before you even consider going turbo. If you have to ask what tunning is, you are in no place to slap a turbo on your car. Start by reading the FI (Forced Induction) threads and go from there.
