UPDATE ON POST #23! READ THAT POST, GIVE ME YOUR .02!
*Disclaimer: have conducted research, found varying results, mostly from 2006-2008*
Good morning/afternoon/evening, ladies & gentlemen
For quite some time I've been seriously considering a Turbo Upgrade
*This is my current parts set-up*
APR 3" Downpipe & High flow cat
Eurojet Cold air Intake
APR chipped (91, 93, 100, valet)
Car has other mods; not performance related though
My budget is somewhat flexible. I do not want to go over ~$6,500 ish.
If I need to, I would consider selling wheels for extra wiggle room (No disrespect Nate!)
I am just curious about a few things. Keep in mind obviously since I am asking, I am not overly experienced or knowledgeable with turbocharger systems & everything that should be upgraded along with them.
SO, onto the questions (please answer any and all you might know the answer to)
1. Should I spend the cash straight up for a full APR upgrade(regardless of which kit I decide on), or piece together my own kit?
2. Is the K04 Kit (all components included) a lot more powerful than my current set-up? I've heard mixed opinions on this question. Along with very mixed dyno results.
3. The stage III kit basically speaks for itself, My question is should I bite the bullet on the extra cost, or will a K04 be more practical with stock internals? I will NOT be upgrading internals, unless I can realistically save enough from piecing a kit together myself and then spending the extra cash on internals.
These questions kind of tie into one another, so really any and all information/experience is helpful.
Thanks a lot in advance, I appreciate the help
