are u drunk???

my RS build cost well under 4000$ with the cost of a brand new 18G, rebuilt ej255 shortblock, and standalone.....

20K? you better be putting down at least 800WHP or you seriously fucked up....

in NO way shape or form is a swap cheaper per HP than a engine build + turbo kit....for the cost of my build i could barely have a stock ej205 in my car.....

as for the OP.....i think you said you're staying N/A now in your pm.....but if you do decide you still wanna turbo pm me any questions...or poke around in this forum for the answer

Anti Trust is the same guy who claims to be running 16psi on his stock EJ25 block.
