Great numbers there Jason!
Thanks Sal. I am not sure what the stock hp difference is between a 325 and a 328. but I would imagine that would be a good starting point to figure that out.

I have a rogue engineering muffler. I had a cai but I believe it was put back to stock to get the truest numbers for the kit on a stock car. Besides those two things she is completely stock.

I just saw this thread. We'll be putting up a thread in the FI forum once we button up the 325 kit's specs (pricing, power graphs, etc.). Until then, feel free to ask me any questions about the kit. I'll do my best to answer them.

I'm sure it will "work" it's just how long will the auto trans hold up to that abuse.

Yes, it will. The maximum recommended boost level will depend on which automatic transmission your car has.

No. I drove my stage4 about 13hrs straight the day after it was installed. Between 25mph and 65mph the whole time and of course some spirited driving here and there. Ok so it was a lot spirited driving.lol.
The TT kit is well thought out and put together. You won't have a problem with extended periods of use.

Thanks! I was worried about the periods of use while using Turbocharger or Supercharger for more than 5/6 hours driving (long journey). Worried if the engine overheated and stuck in the middle of nowhere.

what makes you install the Turbocharger instead of Supercharger? is turbocharger better than supercharger for boosting the engine?

The kid in me wanted the sound the turbo makes when spooling and let off

The adult in me just doesn't like how an SC puts direct pressure on different parts of the engine. Not for daily use anyway. Yes there are a Lot of SC guys who DD their car everyday with no problems. In the end its just personal choice

And lastly, it comes back to the sounds a turbo makes

No piggy back. All tuning is done through the factory DME.
