what should i do?.........

i have a nitrous kit sitting in my living room but i cant make up my mind if i want to just use it or sell it and do a turbo......the plan all along was to sell my bike and turbo the car. well now my wifes car is busted so the plan is to sell the bike and fix/buy a new car for her....so when that happened i thought turbo was out of the question for a long time, well talking to the guy that does all my work he said he wants to pice togeather a twin turbo kit and build it custom......so he tells me that i can just give him any extra cash i get and he will start ordering parts as we go(i know him he isnt going to run off with my money).....so now i dont know if i want to install the nitrous for now or sell it for turbo money.......HELP!!!!!!! i cant ever make my mind up

wholey cow, that's a great deal for a twin turbo setup. If/when you get this done, and it's successful, I'd be willing to drive to where you get your hook-up and have them build the same setup for my ride. If the price is right around the same. Which it should be since it's wouldn't be as custom anymore. not as much R&D on it...so maybe cheaper?

Yeah, I'm willing to take a week off for vacation and drive down there. Although, I don't want to get ahead of myself.

What do you have? Did you get a window switch or racer kit? How much? Might spark more interest.

If your friend can make a turbo kit for that price, and distribute to every v6 owner who wants one he will be set for life
