Great question! My philosophy is to offer a product that is as close to complete as possible to make it easy for the consumer to understand and use. The "tuner kit" is 10k, by definition that kit does not come with tuning. I am completing the DME tuning and offering it with that kit and I will add it to this kit, I don't have final pricing yet but it should not be very much. What I am willing to do for the first few kits sold is to eat the cost of the DME tuning. So if anyone is interested and gets a kit ordered I will hold it to 10k, if you buy it from me or one of my dealers.

The only thing you need to add to this kit is a catch can. I of course have one available and highly suggest my customers to use it as it is top quality and connects to my oil return system and works perfect. Everything else is covered, piping, intercooler, exhaust that connects all the way to the factory cat back and has 5 O2 bungs for all the factory O2's and 1 for the Pro EFI. The waste gate is plumbed into the exhaust for quite street driving, biggest air filter element offered with any base kit and bigger than the competitions upgraded air intakes. The down pipe is 3.5 inches right from the turbo and all the way back, no one else offers that, this is the biggest on the market. The oil return uses only gravity and does not need an oil return pump like other kits, and the last time a checked gravity has never failed us The base kit also comes with a tubular header that is 6 into one design and can handle power levels over 1300 hp, much more than we will ever need on these cars. The waste gate control works perfect and can hold boost down to 4 psi which is very hard to do with a 67/66 precision turbo which comes with the base kit.

Please post more pictures of the final kit installed Saad! I would also like to see how your intercooler looks with the factory bumper installed (same as Jason's car or were there changes?). It's great to see you guys on the forum as a supporting vendor

Same kit.. plus ProEFI, plus a larger flowing fuel system (stock system can only flow so much as it was designed around a naturally aspirated engine), their intake manifold (stock manifold can only handle so much pressure, increase the boost and it will likely crack/explode since it's plastic), etc.. The 10K kit will get you in the door but to make higher power you need the proper supporting mods

+1 It's a great kit from everything I've seen. From an engineering stand point it covers all bases and functions very well. Problems that have plagued other turbo kits have been addressed and won't be an issue, notably the turbo oil drain system and intercooler charge piping. The only thing is that it might not look as "OEM" as HPF's kit (I have to give them credit there, in person it does look nearly factory) but this is a none issue for me as the parts function and are of good quality. I've been so happy with my car as of late and it's extremely reliable (~15 track days last year) naturally aspirated but this kit has me wanting to turbo my car

+1!!
If you anodized your intake pipe the general enthusiast would think it was stock based on that pic! Any more?

Thank you, I've always believed a good product will sell itself. We will be adding the other systems to the car than taking it out to the track, first with the stock engine and than with the built engine. I'll be posting videos of the results for everyone to see. Should be a lot of fun.
