Car Craft EBay Turbo article + Vince = 500hp at under 2k (in theory)



Couldn't we do this, call vince, and call it a day at 500+ hp for under 2k?

This may be do-able for less.. A place in town has a mustang turbo kit that claims its 650 hp capable for $399 shipped! If that thing made it a year it would be soo worth it! Tuning would be $550 from Trifecta (I think). Custom piping is $200 roughly. Cant really think of much else I would need.

Thats what Ultimate performance did to mine and a couple other cars. Ebay turbo kits and made 628 rwhp was still running strong when I totaled it. Tried to bring a suit against them but Garrett want even touch it. Japan copy's are as good or even better for like 1/3 the price.

Would be interesting to see. The honda clone engines on eBay from china run just as good or better than authentic Briggs motors on go karts.
