Default Forced induction!!!

I'm getting desperate guys. I have a friend moving to Texas in a couple weeks and he said he would do my install for me. I just need to get my hands on something! I'm typically a super charger fan but I really want to go twin turbo on this one. I've fallen in love with this car and jumped into the black hole of mods.

So far I've lowered it (which is a terrible idea in L.A. and I regret it), exhaust, intake, and some other cosmetics. I'm open to a body kit some sexy wheels, and better tires too but my priority is for the car to be mean then look mean.

I'm looking for something between 4-6k for the TT. Body kit around 1k. Wheels and tires 1-2k. And another 1-2k miscellaneous like tuning and installation. It's not so much price as it is value. It's a major project and it's going to be one of the most incredible 370s out there. I'm looking for value and stability more so than a strict budget.

Not to be a downer, but if you are looking to build "one of the most incredible 370s out there" a ceiling of $11k isn't going to do it.

A turbo kit and supporting mods will eat up that entire budget if you do it right. The boosted performance kit is in that ballpark, but it's a single. Fast intentions is the only TT kit out there right now and it's 10k plus. Up your budget or lower your goals.

I've seen some nice, but used, TTs selling on the forum in the 4's. Unfortunately everyone in california just sold theirs and I missed out. The body kit will most likely end up being lips and skirts for accent. I know I can do some serious improvements and keep it under 10k. Performance and longevity is my priority.

Your absolutely right. But by incredible I don't mean 800hp tokyo drift status. I figure as I build this out my budget will go up

Always appreciate the input!

If I was looking for stability I don't think I would want to run a used TT. Pretty sure I would want all new parts with some kind of warranty. From what I have learned by going to cheap on my Z I always end up spending more because I didn't just get it done right the first time. Just my 2 cents

Be very very careful with used kits. Budget in half again the cost for missing parts, new clamps, hoses, maybe a rebuilt turbo or two. And then plan another 3-4k in supporting mods- clutch, radiator, oil cooler, gauges... The list is long if you want it to be reliable. If I were you, I'd get on the boosted performance list and go that route.

Cool. So it does come out to about 10k roughly. I've talked to a couple of my friends and they're saying that after I get the turbo it'll be another 8-40k depending how crazy I want to go. I think I'm frying my brain trying to learn everything at once lol

All I know is that I love my car and I want it to hit 60 in 4.x seconds with a nice little whistle blowing. Having a japanese car with a bov has been my dream since I was a kid. I got to drive a Maserati and it made me realize that my car needs more power and I think now is the time do it

Figure 10k at minimum for kit and supporting mods for the powertrain. Have a budget, but add in another 15% for surprises along the way.

Boosted Performance is the least expensive quality kit on the market.
Here is a snapshot of my costs (I installed everything other than the clutch)
Turbo kit - $8,435 (includes ball bearing upgrade, shipping, PayPal)
Gauges - $1,230 (wideband, oil temp, oil pressure, boost, boost controller, a-pillar pod)
Clutch - $1,400 (clutch, HD CSC, CMC, install)

That's over $11,000 without exhaust and tune

If you do decide to go the SC route I have a Stillen kit with the 9psi pulley and upgraded impeller on the way out on my car, coming out to be replaced with a BP single turbo kit and built engine as I want more power.

YES! Initially I loved the idea of that SC but I opted for a TT because I think the engineering is sexy. And I don't think I'll have enough power from the SC to have the bov whistle. I'll hear back from my squad hopefully on friday and I'll have a better understanding of where I'm at.

I just want to point out how awesome this forum is. After all the research I've done today I've come across some forums where people just talk down and hate on other users, but this forum has such a great vibe to it! For what it's worth I've been working in health and wellness for a while so if anyone needs any help with their health, diet, product knowledge, cleansing and detoxing, or a source of healthier and safer personal care and nutrition products let me know and I can pay this forward
