So there will be no more turbo kits made by TMA turbo you will have to fab one up yourself or find someone selling one and I was just getting ready to upgrade mine.

Well you can still upgrade yours no prob. You have most of the stuff that needs to be fabbed up already. Bigger turbo would work, injectors, computer upgrade,etc. Your good to go.

Re: No more V6 turbo kits

Re: No more V6 turbo kits

There are but from what I have looked and found most are companies that mainly make them for the v8s and when I ask them about v6 kits they say they will have to make them custom from an original v8 kit and it would cost a good bit more. HP Performance said I would have to take my car to them for them to do it and I think they were in New Mexico or somewhere around there. But heck with some of the beaters being featured in mustang mags we should just go get a john deere tractor and go nuts.

Re: No more V6 turbo kits

oh well, make your own kit. figure out what turbo/s best suit your goals, figure out how things work, why they work, how to make them work for your application, and make them work. it will be hard, but if its the route you want to go, being able to order a kit or having to make one yourself should stop you. IMO doing it yourself, even piecing it together from other kits, you will come out ahead of the guy who just orders it from some website and slaps it on. just think of all the things you will learn in the process. Thats what modding is all about, the journey is more important than the destination.

Re: No more V6 turbo kits

There is hope for the turbos

Herb,
Yes, We do plan on that as soon as we can get a break. Should be this fall sometime. What year is your car?
Thanks very much,
