I've seen the build quality of other kits, and so far haven't seen one on the same level as the Vishnu kit. Of course you aren't going to find 400hp for $2500... If you start looking on the page, I see that a lot of stuff that I would consider neccessary, is extra...Boxer said:What do you feel isn't complete, if I may ask? Of course there's no intercooler, but it's an available upgrade. If you wanna go full bore w/ injectors, new turbo (I like that vf22 option.), intercooler, and pipes, it's about $3500-$3700. There's no cheap way to get reliable hp, IMHO. You won't find a kit for $2500 that can give you 400hp. They just don't exist. Comparing this to Vishnu is like apples to oranges.
I don't know if he ever started to mass produce it... in fact it took quite a while for all the pieces to arrive. But the quality of it was very nice, compared to the Ludespeed and JC sports kits. Don't get me wrong, they all work fine, but you get what you pay for. And I'm sure you could add a Tec 3 to any of those other kits.Lo0mis said:Does that guy even sell anything for the GC8s anymore?? Sure as hell doesn't seem like it. Did he even start to mass produce that turbo kit they where working on?
While you don't need stand alone engine management, I think a SAFC and possibly a little beefier fuel pump would be advisable. There are a few people running that setup to my knowledge.Boxer said:at 4-5 psi, you don't really need it. Much above that, you really really need it! I'd love to figure out how to get bigger injectors to work with my stock ecu.
