Also, when one says "affordable," that can be very subjective. Some folks say 10k for a fully tuned supercharger upgrade is "affordable." What's your definition of affordable, JTinFL?


Turbos can actually increase mpg if you don't put the hammer down (and some people actually don't unless it's on the weekends). Otherwise, if you're boosting all day every day, of course your mpg will go down.

I'm expecting this kit to be around 6-7k without shipping/installation, but if it's less, I'll be ecstatic.
