Want to add a turbo and worried about the heat and want to be stealthy. Been looking hard at the "STS Turbo" kits(100-140whp gain @ 3-5lbs of boost) and watching you tube vids. Any input pro or con will help.
that much gain on that bit of boost is a lie.Want to add a turbo and worried about the heat and want to be stealthy. Been looking hard at the "STS Turbo" kits(100-140whp gain @ 3-5lbs of boost) and watching you tube vids. Any input pro or con will help.
Now wait , when you start the car you will have or better have 15-20 psi of vacuum , I have drove about 4 of the STS cars all V8 and I am telling you the lag is there , think about how far the turbo has to push the exh as its cooling to the turbo then push the boost back to the intercooler then to the engine , they have HORRIBLE turbo lag , how much piping there is to fill down the exh then back to the intercooler then to the engine , My guess is you wont see full boost till about 4800 to 5000 rpmTom, I will be getting ahold of you for a tuner.
The more I investigate turbos, the more I like this kit. The only I don't like is the turbo replaces the muffler. Im going to talk to sts and see if i can run one behind the turbo.
I am running an intercooler and it is blatblack.
they say the turbo lag really isn't there. Running a T3/To hybrid, once the car is started, the system is charged and pressurized.
It's only $3100 for the "complete" kit. And if it does everything they say it does, worth the money.
They'regoing to build one for me and ship it out ready to bolt on. I talked to the guy for two hours about it.Space in V8 apps. is why superchargers are making a comeback, if someone HAS to turbo their Corvette there isn't much room available.
I didn't see a kit from them listed for a Focus, there are offerings for generic kits & pick-a-part to fill them out to a do it yourself combination of parts.
