You should not have any issues running turbos as a daily driver. You will want to change your oil more frequently and I suggest synthetic. In addition to MyWorld, Z_Maddness and Jim505 have the STS kit on their daily drivers. Several others (like me) have got different setups and I don't think anyone has had a major issue. I would suggest that you consider the upgraded turbo if you go with the STS.

Thanks for the kind words. Have fun driving it, but please leave a little tread on the tires!

PM SC2150. Since mine was the prototype, my cost will not be reflective of what he's selling it for. I think it was around $7K but don't hold me to that.

So how many kits does STS offer?

and what upgrades do I have to make after installing the turbo? do I have to remove the exhaust and headers and re-tune the car?

What about the brakes?

Does seem like it would be laggy, but they do put the 80mm ones on Supras so I guess you can put enough exhaust through them.

There is two kits for the V6 single or twin turbos. You really dont need the twin since the engine really won't take more than 7psi.

Options:
Ball Bearings upgrade
Turbo size - we went smaller so it spools faster
Turbo jacket
Turbo Coating
You get the tune with the kit from STS which is tuned by Tri-fecta

Hope that helps.

We are a dealer for STS so if you have other questions please pm us.
