normal driving

I have lots of questions for all of you

is it practical on a daily driver car i live in a rural area with lots of country roads but i also use it to go to work and school which are 2 and 5 miles away of stop and go.

how good is the startup...will it start everytime even in the winter.

is there alot of maintence even what about running lower boost

i found a good deal on a used one with an intercooler and tuning all the nessessities.

i want it to last a long time.

Reliability is there any?

i know alot of production cars have them
i know some of these have been asked but i really want to make sure

Well reliability comes down to a few things. The quality of the kit, The tuning done to your car, And how your cars current condition is and how you drive. I will say this there seems to be lower quality turbo kits floating around and alot of people on this forum seem to like Toms focus power kit because of his knowledge with the focus and research and development with his kits. Now the major thing with any turbo or supercharger kit will be the tuning done to the car to make sure that all aspects of your car are running at an acceptable level including timing, fuel and so on. So even if you bought the best turbo kit in the world you really need to set some money aside to get your car dyno and tuned properly. If i were you id find out what kind of turbo and who developed the kit yer buying first and stuff like that and let us know and search on this forum for info.

hope this helps.

Brandon.
