Lightbulb first time turbo?

Look in the classifieds. If there are no listings for a used greddy kit, then probably nobody has one for sale here. You can also post an ad in the WTB section.

You need to stop posting.
You need to start reading.
You need to use the search function.
You need to look in the classifieds.
You probably need to spend your money on something else.

No. Nobody here has a turbo on any car they own, or have owned, or will ever own. Turbos are mythical, like unicorns and the Tooth Fairy.

alot of newbies post things like "i want it in my hand now!" instead of getting up and getting it themselves...

I believe he meant was anyone selling a used kit.

In general, it's best to search... ****, you can go to the Greddy website and it'll tell you how much.

But also "in general", each psi is good for about 10whp. Your car comes with about 90whp stock. There are dozens of factors that affect this, some bigger than others, but 1psi=10whp is a good way to estimate.
