You'll have more money in the Kenny bell than the turbo.

I've had nitrous on about every car I've ever owned nothing wrong with it. It's just not there all the time. 40 bucks to fill a bottle and if your spraying 125/150hp you'll get what 4/5 passes out of a bottle. Me I chose turbo and Iam very happy with my choice. Gives you complete stock drivability and the ability to grow if you choose to do so. No matter what you choose you'll enjoy it. Nos is cheaper bang for the buck.

You'll be over $2k once you do all that and get a tuner. Also Cushman is better.

Honestly this thread made my head hurt. I know we all had to start somewhere but ebay turbo kits... no... you will get nothing but a bunch of **** shot into your motor, blow the whole thing up and that's it.

To be blunt... stop. Do some research, you are not going to get a bunch of HP for cheap, not unless you spray it. And if you don't have exhaust and suspension and the rest of the basic stuff like gears done yet you should do that first.

Injectors are literally doing nothing for you right now. Did you have your tune adjusted for 24s? And by exhaust and suspension I mean full exhaust and suspension=CC plates with springs/shocks/struts and lower control arms at minimum.

Not trying to be a downer... but you really need to understand what all the parts do and what will help and what just wastes your money. Pretty much anything advertised as "bolt on power" besides exhaust is a scam or make so little difference its not worth it. This includes a CAI, pullies, any sort of "high energy coils", plenum spacer etc... etc...

There are some eBay turbo kits that were upgraded the right way. Had a buddy running low 10's in 1/4 on eBay Turbo. Not sure which one but he did upgrade the turbos manifold or something like that or the bearings. You can do nitrous also nx or NOS efi plate kit is what you want either way turbo or nitrous you need colder plugs, upgrades fuel pump, and tune to support the extra power of course. Precision makes a bunch of good turbo kits tho if you want that.

Just my .2.

Stop thinking about big power adders. From what it seems your car is stock. Just slapping a turbo kit on a stock car won't get you anywhere especially the eBay junk. I wouldn't even put that kit on if it was free.

I'd be willing to be you could slap that kit on and I would put bus lengths on it with my bolt on car.

Read my build thread and see what all goes into doing it the right way.

There is not very much you can do for the PI 2V power wise with bolt ons. They dyno around 240 factory. "Full bolt on" cars are in the 250-255 range and most of that is from the exhaust and a tune. All I would do (and do) for a "bolt on" 2V is a good catted mid pipe, catback exhaust, tune, 4.10s and suspension work with good wheels and tires. Then work on cosmetics and just enjoy driving it. Maybe do the CAI just because the stocker looks butt ugly but only get the JLT and don't expect any drastic gains from it.
