I am not up to speed on alot of the modifications either, so I appreciate those who try to explain this to me.

If and when these kits come out for the Turbo, that usually doesn't cover install correct. So what is the difficulty in installing this??

The install is pretty involved. You really need to knwo what youre doing. It's probably gonna run you about two grand to get it installed at a shop from what I've heard. So add that to the probably six grand you're gonna drop on the kit. Plus from what I've heard you need to upgrade various parts of the engine that won't come in the kit. So I'm guessing you're looking at at leastt $8000-$9000. LOT of money to drop. Good thing I have four years to save up and let the richer folks blow their engines experimenting before me

Installation actually isnt all that bad, I've installed a few turbo kits on my old car. The only thing that sucked was that there wasnt a whole lot of room to work with, but if you find a kit that is direct bolt on and all the piping is made to fit your application, it wont be all that hard. I advise taking it to a shop if you havent done it before though. On averarge, it took me about 4-5 hours to install. The tuning is a different battle, since i used a AFC tune, instead of a OBD tune. The shops i've dealt with usually charged anywhere 1,000 to 2,000 for install depending on the kit you get, single or twin, and the accessibility of your engine. Right now, with the turbo kits just coming to the market, you can expect to pay anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000 for a decent kit. Give it a few years and save some money and you could most likely find the same kit for 1,500 not on ebay.

I know it's bad form to criticize something small from such an old thread, but... wouldn't painting an intercooler black be doing your mods more for appearance than performance, AKA the very definition of rice?

Maybe my understanding of rice is wrong, but it is my understanding that ricing is an aesthetic mod that is meant to look or sound like performance (with little to no actual performance gain), and is usually over the top for the car that it is being added to.

Think of it this way, you didn't buy the Camaro strictly for the power, did you? Nothing wrong with wanting your performance parts to look good as long as your not hindering the performance of the part you are adding.
