The location and packaging of a single turbo in these cars leaves a bit to be desired. A good quality Twin kit is available from somebody around here

I heart AGP twins kit. Making somewhere in the neighborhood of 1100rwhp on high boost with S261 turbos. Changing a couple things out to try and make well over 1200rwhp and then dropping back to 750-800 just to run around on.

Believe it or not, you can have too much power on the street. 1-3 gears were like driving on ice. I never got into 4th because I ran out of road.

If I didn't have my SC I would be all over AGP. Say are you interested in a Vortech-Lysholm SC .

I'm puttering around fine with 650rwhp by a twin turbo AGP base kit. Nice to be able to dial down the boost to drive around town, then crank it up to purely enjoy, albeit my tires don't really like me anymore.

I have a turbonetics kit. I think it's a great kit if you need it to be 50 state legal for emissions. Low boost powerwise I think it's pretty decent. I made 559hp at 7 psi on a dynojet. I'm at 9 psi now with fic 1000cc injectors and a zl1 pump, but haven't been back to the dyno. On the other hand they are really easy to outgrow due to backpressure from the small t4 exhaust housing. Also the way they routed all hotside piping, it's almost like a rear remote mount in terms of lag.

If I could do it all over again I would have gone with twins. I am actually thinking of selling my turbonetics kit and getting a agp twin set up.

good luck

AGP hands down, IPS is also a very solid system.

On this platform.....go twins!!!!

The AGP kit will give you so much room for growth its silly really. Do not even consider a single. With the base AGP kit and no other mods, 600whp is easily attainable. with Cam/exhaust mods 700 is there also, just make sure the fuel is there too.

Good luck, choose wisely! Many have come before you.

700-800 with no cam/etc is easy with a nice twin kit. Just need the fuel and octane. Heck, good fuel system meth and stock kit and 900rwhp with no other mods would be easily doable.

If I didn't already have my single I would buy the AGP kit in a minute. I may still buy it and make the switch in a few months.

ive got the turbonetics kit.. its got a few mods in sig, but put down that hp on a mustang dyno. it makes 1-2 gears useless. 3rd also can get very sideways when boost comes in. I got it to be CARB LEGAL. otherwise I would be all over the AGP kit as well. but with that said I happy with my set up and its making the power I wanted.

We will soon be releasing the revised tuner kit which will consist of the billet 75/75 and larger wastegates for those desiring more. Our current kit was based around CARB legality whereas this kit will not. Test results thus far have been very impressive.

You are running the wrong tires and suspension if you cant hook 2nd and 3rd at your HP.
