Seriously? Maybe I'm just a cheapskate, but I'd think it could be done a whole lot cheaper than that. My guess to do it right, as long as you can weld and do all of it yourself, would be 3-4K at most.I would give an estimate of around 5 to 6 grand to do it right. i would say 4 to 5 for the turbo it self.
and 1 to 2 to build the engine up
So which one is faster, your STI or you tSVT? Do you think the SVT motor will last a long time on, say, 15 PSI, or could one suspect that longevity may be affected by long-term use of boost?you can run 12-18psi on the stock svt motor with 93 oct. john has proven that. the amount of boost you can run will really depend on the turbo that you use. but for the most part you can make 3-350whp on the stock svt motor with a GOOD tune and be fine.
just get you a turbo kit, a good dyno tune, injectors, mafia, j&s and you will be happy with what the svt can do.
