•Spray nitrous like a mutha****a


People say that the 4.6 2v will more or less hold up at 400rwhp. With a 125 shot you still won't even be close to that. Good tune and all the bells and whistles and your golden

Define cheap.

If you feel $2,000 is cheap, then go forced induction.

If $2,000 is not cheap, you may want to rethink this.

I would personally dump about $1,000 into a nitrous setup and have at it.

Cheap and best don't go in the same sentence. Cheap, best and TURBO really don't go in the same sentence.

The cheapest good Turbo is the On3 kit. The best one is probably Hellion or B&G.

As far as cheap... you'll need a tubular K member setup for most turbos so there is $300 right off the bat. An On3 kit is $2k, fuel system figure another $500-$700 and then a tune is going to run around $600.

So you are at $3500 or thereabouts for the very cheapest setup. NOTE, this is assuming you already have the rest of the car setup to properly get the power to the ground.

Edit: This is also assuming you do ALL the installation yourself for free. If not, get ready to tack on probably $1k or so for the fuel system, k member and turbo system install. Maybe more.

Yea a person's definition of cheap can affect it a bit. But usually if they are asking about a cheap turbo, they don't have a big budget.

$3500 is just a rock bottom number. It will likely be between $4500 and $5k when all is said and done. Not to mention beefing up the rest of the car to make the extra power usable.
