Question Turbo Kits

Hey guys

I know what your thinking. Another newbie, with a question that has been asked tons of times.

So here are my questions for you guys. I have a 2005 2.5 RS, and I was looking into different turbo kits.
There is the one at turbo-kits dot C0M (the site wont let me use the URL but if you goto the website you can find a kit for EJ25)
I donít know if this kit would fit. And how is this companies return / customer satisfaction policies. Has any one ever dealt with these guys and if yes how are they? How are their kits?

I have looked around for a decent complete kit but I cant find anything, I mean sure there are tons of companies that sell the pipes, turbo, intercooler, oil lines, fittings and other stuff like that but would they fit together? Since they have to be ordered separately.

I am looking for low boost; I donít want to change my engine. Iím going to stick with the EJ25, maybe get the STi head gasket but thatís it, what do you guys think about this?

Thanks for all your inputs.

Do not, under any circumstances, by a kit from turbokits.com
Engine Go BOOM

There is Rallitek (who is making their own kit) that sells the AVO kit
and also Forced Air Tech sells a couple kits too.

Rallitek might even make the cost of the kit 3000, pretty sure that's what they are leaning on right now, .

InterestingÖ thanks guys.

What is the next best thing after a short ram intake and cat back? I donít want to spend 1G on an ECU I also know that Iím not getting the best of my Ďmodsí if you can call it that this early on the game. What do you think about S-AFC II? Good or bad? And how easy is it to install?

If your going turbo dont get an intake, you'll have to get a new one once you go turbo, also you can get Perfect Power piggyback ECU at www.rallitek.com for about 500.

More upgrades include lightweight pulleys, new header, mabe think about suspension mods too.

Acutally, IIRC, the 05 RS's are MAF.
