From the sound of it, if i was doing a kit, i would wait a month or so for FAT. sounds like they might have some cool/good shtuff coming out.

well unfortunately Ludespeed no longer makes kits, but i like my kit.

that being said i think FAT prob makes a better kit, better IC design, better turbo, etc. plus Robert is somewhat local to you, i think its a no brainer for you to go FAT.

check them out at www.kastleskorner.com

Drooooooooool..................................... ......

I would love to have one of those under the hood.

Anyone that has looked at the site notice that all the turbos are only rated at a 70-80hp gain? There has to be some under-rating going on with those.

the 60-80 hp gain is at 5 psi. The turbos can support much more power than that. the stock 2.5rs motor however can't.

Ok that makes more sense. Personally I hope to get a STI short block and have my heads done and then go for a turbo set up. The long term goal being to be able to hit the 350-400 hp range.

IMO i wouldn't do that. No reason for it. you should go turbo first and then the block. other wise you are going to be running 8:1 compression. right now you are at 10:1. With the lower compression a Geo Metro would smoke you if you don't have a turbo on your car. I thought about doing that too. but was told there is no reason to do anything for boost, unless you have boost.

i guess if you want to prep your engine for boost, i would buy the STi block, but don't install it till you get the turbo, and do it all at once. but doing the block first is crazy. Peace.
