      .:R32

      So I just recently got a 2004 r32 and Ive been getting used to the stock hp and I am looking to upgrade to a turbo! But I'm not trying to spend $5000 on a turbo kit that lots of these big companys have already put together.

      Can anyone help guide me to build a decently priced turbo kit!

      Thanks.

      Its difficult to convert on the cheap and still have reliability.
      You may be better increasing the capacity from 3.2 by either rebore or stroking.

      A used turbo kit with good hardware and compatible software is whT you need. It is very difficult to get a full kit for under $5000 and will probably not get a brand new kit for that price. If you want to piece a kit together than I can help you bargain shop for parts and software that you want. I did that three times in order to get the kit I wanted. I went from 350AWHP to 500AWHP and now sitting over 700 AWHP and saved so much money piecing it together myself. Are you looking to just dump $5000 into the parts all at once? Are you looking to pay for labor or do the install yourself?

      quality and price do not go hand in hand, but good luck.
