Post Why is JC sports' turbo systems so expensive

did I miss something or what? up 1000 dollars than last month? There is absolutley no reason that would convince me why they did it! I will not pay 3500 for a turbo kit that will deliver only up to 7.5 PSI! anyway, what is the real reason they raised the prices (and it's not because they can't get the parts, or the parts are harder to make/get. thats way too much bs).

I would be one of the last person to defend JC Sports but,I believe they had some rebuilt turbos on that 1999.00 sales bonanza he was having.About the psi's many people wanted just a boost to make their subaru run like it is supposed to without all the expense of electronics.At 7.0 psi you could just bolt on and go.
like I said I wuold be the last one to defend him until someone else post a reply.

Do a search JC sports themselves have already responded to a simialar question about two weeks ago. It has to do with the fact the parts are nolonger going to be family welded but farmed out but now there will be no wait once a turbo is ordered it will be shipped the next day or so. I was something to that exstent. Search a your shall find.

I'm gonna keep ALL of you drooling about what I know JC has up their sleeves. I know all of them quite well, and I prefer to keep their secrets the way they are. I know they're expensive, but I still go there because of LOYALTY! I know them well enough to know that the money you pay DOES go into further R&D. Profit is also a motive, but who here would expect it NOT to be? I trust them enough to use my car as a guinea pig. I'll leave all of you with that, and the statement that a lot of killer parts will be released in the coming months. I look forward to many long nights in the "Lab"....MUHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

I feel I would be hitting peoples nerves in a negative way towards me if the post had continued to exist. I have erased it, I'm not a hater...I just want reform (I'm republican by the way).

Talking

I was talking with Joe Cox last month, and they are planning to offer (a) three levels of IHI kits and (b) three levels of more expensive Garrett kits, and the least expensive 7 psi kit will likely drop to under $3,000. I tried my hardest to talk him into under $2,499 but he wasn't sure if they could handle the leap in demand. Heck, they sold 20 kits in 10 days with the group buy at $1999!

Now, if they hire out the welding for many of the kits it raises their costs considerably. I would rather see them hire more people "in house" and keep the costs down personally.

Also, the day before the prices went up a few weeks ago, the "basic" Garrett kit was $3,200, the "stage I" was $3,600, and the "stage II" was $4,200 - I know these numbers for a fact because I was getting my IHI kit installed there when they updated the website.

Take care,

Larry www.ImprezaRS.com

Apparently there are a lot of suppliers of turbokits now. Minnam/Technik, Vishnu, ASR, Turbo/Redline, JCS, supposedly SPO Motorsports can get one, and Rallispec soon.

Larry spilled a few beans, but my "guinea pig" status is covered under the N/A category. It's gonna be a LOT of fun :}. Look for around 275-300 N/A horsepower, and significant torque too. No magic off the wall stuff, just ingenuity at it's finest :}.

Yeah, that growl will change drastically .
They really do sound like tiny V8's. It should definitely be interesting. It'll prolly sound very...umm...unique. I won't know until it's done, though. That sound clip I found is probably going to be pretty close, but not exact. I'd like to try cams and header at the same time, but we need to see if the setup actually runs first. All the electronics are pretty much together, which makes it good to go. It's been on paper until now. Enough hints.

The prices on their site reflect the change in manufacturing process. Instead of making everything in-house, they are farming it out to places to be made which means much higher quality parts, and I even heard something about ceramic coating on the up and downtubes in the kits as well. Basically when the switch occours, they'll be able to walk over and pull a kit off the shelf and send that day instead of making you wait 4-6 weeks for it to all be hand-made.
