best if your not too up on fabrication, the costs for you to have someone cut and weld a down pipe, and charge piping and all the little bits will out weigh.... USUAULLY.... a kit... so the kit is usually the best option unless you can make your own down pipe and charge piping and can get really good deals on stuff... then you gotta worry about tuning... CFM is near you, so im sure they could help, or FS or Maybe Focuspower can do an e-mail remote tune...

moving to FI for you though [thumb]

Sounds like you'll want to go with a kit.
Honhon, congrats on the kid. :)

Agreed, Fabrication is not for the faint of heart, or wallet at that

Also, take a look at Page 1 of Sporadics or My turbo build thread to give you a good starting point.

I'll throw a couple here, this is all the big items... There are a TON of misc items you will have to get.

You will need as follows-
Turbo
Exhaust Flange
2 Exhaust 90's, 2 exhaust T's
Oil kit with 2 1/2 inch brass T's and 2 1/2 inch nipples.
Boost gauge, oil pressure gauge, and Wideband.
Turbo Flange, turbo exhaust flange.
Oil sump baffle (not sure if necessary but I did for mine)
#60 injectors
Blow off valve or Bypass
Flex pipe
Mafia(if required)
Alot of custom fabrication work...


I'm not even going to tip the misc items.

Good luck! I'm almost done with mine.

What do you mean you have the turbo kit? Like you have a turbo? And if so I think it would be a good thing to list your goals of what you want power wise and also list what parts you have already. Turbo size and what not.
