why not do a whole kit... i know its a do it yourself... but i cant do it myself if i have to do custom work for a bunch of things...

a diy is whole turbo kit ready to install with nothing else needed.

eh, it is a DYI kit that requires no fabwork.
i have the entire kit with all the recommended goodies sitting on my shelf.

everything listed above can be installed and the car will work the way its supposed to.

the recomended goodies are only suggested items. you can replace what he suggests with parts of your choice, as long as the lists are the same.

so chill

A DIY Kit is a Do It Yourself kit , Meaning some of the kit you have to get your self , Dont know of another way to say what I have other then DIY

You dont have to do custom work on anything , all the hard parts are made to fit and heady to go

No DIY kit is complete, hence the "DIY" part of it. Like Tom said, it supplies the basics, so there's no need to fab anything, just supply a few more parts yourself.

We didnt use to have BB turbos and they did fine , BB turbos just spool up faster and with big HP that helps

how much power are they pushing though? Another question, could I use a std. bearing turbo now...and then later switch to a bb turbo without any modifications to mounting it in the future?
