Lightbulb Low cost 4 psi of boost....

I want 4 psi of boost on my 2.5 RS and I want it cheap (like a couple hundred cheap). Is this too much to ask? I also want about 60,000 acres of prime woodland. Which is more likely to happen first?

4 psi on a couple hundred bucks? Not going to happen! I'm just starting on a low-pressure turbo kit for my RS, and so far, I've gotten good deals on the two parts I've bought, the turbo and a RRFPR. And I'm already at $300, and I still need a proECM, up/down pipes, external wastegate, intake, charge pipe, and an intercooler. The only cheap pressure you can get is from that e-Ram, the fan thing for the intake, and that only makes maybe 0.5 psi, if your lucky, and probably not even that. And that runs about $300. You want real boost, you're looking at at least $1500 if you can find deals on the parts.

Just to stand up for myself. I have read all of the facts in all of the forums on I-club.

I just haven't read one that only cost a couple hundred dollars. That is why I asked. So.....not going to happen.

Thanks for the replies anyways.

I suppose you could buy a bunch of hamsters to run in some kinf of turbine wheel for a couple hundred dollars. Not sure if they could provide 4psi of boost though.

Yeah, but it would cost a lot to feed them. Plus, my friend with a civic said that it doesn't work all that well. But he definately felt an improvement over stock.

I may have an almost-complete turbo kit that I will sell for couple hundred bucks though It works especially on a non-hoodscoop Impreza. That is, if my friend doesn't want it first.

Good luck finding another one.

Heres an Idea, find a VG30 turbo from a Zed. You should be able to get the custom work fabbed for a few hundred, turbo will be very cheap if you don't buy it in the states. This is a very common thing to do with non turbo skylines, most of them only run 7-9psi from these turbos before they either highflow them or start replacing wheels.

Not sure if this is more then you want to spend but it's a pretty cheap idea.

If you are worried about the spool time on the VG turbos, look around for a T28 off of an RB20DET. If you get one off of an R33 you will get ceramic blades aswell The little snails off of a Vr-4 is an option aswell. The only problem with these plans is finding a guy that does cheap fab work.

Talking

Go down to Target, WalMart, KMart, etc. get the following:

1) Biggest Hair dryer you can find.
2) CB radio with PA capabilities

Then drive over to Home Depot for:

3) Dryer hose
4) Silver spray paint

then off to Krispy Kreme for:

5) One dozen glazed donuts (just really need box)

After that drive home to do "turbo" kit install. Follow these easy steps for your new "forced induction " kit.

1) Paint KK box (TMIC) and hair dryer (turbo) silver. Let parts thoroughly dry. You could detail the parts with your favourite manufacturer logos or other "details" to make it more realistic.

2) Install "turbo" right around where a real turbo would go.

3) Mount "TMIC" in position.

4) *This is the hard part* - Wiring the CB unit with the PA under the bonnet right around where the BOV would go.

5) Connect all important areas with dryer hose to make it look "legit."

6) Take your new turbo out for a "drive" making "pssssssht" noises when you shift or rev up.

Best part of this kit...you can make it sound like a VTEC turbo or a true boxer turbo or your favourite WRC car. It's a very felxible kit in terms of "style."

That is about the most creative thing I have ever read.

You must have had KK donuts for breakfast.

Great idea except for the fact that it would not contribute at all to the power. Unless of course I had a Blowtech stick put in the back window. Then I would have to get tires every two weeks.
