Current Mods:

Want to buy:

You think that would do the trick? Been looking for this setup online and I canít find anything.

Thanks in advanced.

That kit is like $9000 isn't it? You could buy the pump, injectors, turbo and the retune for a fraction of that and still have enough money to buy a steak dinner every night for a year!

Also I think the AMS packages are rated at crank HP and not the wheels, I could be wrong though.

We aren't far away in Vancouver, WA and can get you the bolt on GTX3076 turbo, ETS downpipe, Fuel pump and injectors. Probably be quite a bit cheaper than that package since you already have most of it. EnglishRacing can do the tuning and is about 15 mins away from us.

If your budget allows for what you listed you could really do a full turbo kit with a 5858 and leave room to grow later. That is the route I would go (and did go on my own car).

I don't even see that kit listed on the AMS site.
