Justin, the reason people are giving you **** is because... well, just let me answer your questions and maybe it'll make sense:

1. they require an equal amount of skill.
2. neither is hard.
3. you need to know how to read and use the search function.
4. if you can install the turbo and "everything", then you don't need to do anything else.

Now, no matter what you say or post from here on out will just show that you're a douche who doesn't know when to shut up, so don't post again. Spend the next few weeks reading every thread that pops up on this forum. Come here once a day for about 1/2 an hour and just read EVERYTHING. At first, some stuff you won't understand... that's what the "SEARCH" funtion and GOOGLE are for. When you think you know stuff like "how much power do I want" "how much money do I want to spend" "exactly what am I capable of installing myself" "what am I going to use the car for"... then maybe you'll be in a position to start a thread that asks good questions and we can give you good answers. Take this thread as a learning experience, shut up, go read for a few weeks, and then come back and start your next thread in the NOOB forum, introduce yourself, your goals, your $$, etc... Do some homework and then report back. Trust me.

And for the record, Hustler is a badass.

There will be no catfighting.

Boostinboy, Hustler is a douchebag, however he is a senior douchebag. What this means is that while we all know that he is full of ****, he counts on the fact that newbies do not and provokes them into the type of behavior that ultimately results in their being banned.

That said, SamNavy pretty much hit the mark. Once you've demonstrated an ability to use the "Search" function, to read all the various FAQs and writeups, and to logically think through situations and ask intelligent questions, then you'll find us a much more helpful and friendly group. However, posting things like " i can install the turbo and everything, but what else do i have to do?" suggests a level of cognitive function that we are uncomfortable being around. If you don't know "what else do i have to do", then you are yet ready to "install the turbo and everything".

Read, think, ask. In that order.

Please don't waste my ******* time with endless emails. These are plain old cinderblocks, for **** sake. You don't need to do an engineering study on the feasibility of using these ******* things as building material. That's what they're for, you ******* idiots. Now listen, we're all busy people here. You want the blocks? Come get the ******* blocks and give me one dollar for every block you take. How ******* hard is that? You don't have to tell me what you're building. I don't give a ****. I'm not interested in helping you build it either. Why? Because I don't give a ****. I just want to get these ******* things off my property. So if you want them, get the **** over here with some money and take them. The next ******* moron that emails me with "I'm building a blah blah blah, and was wondering if..." The answer is NO. Come get the ******* blocks and build it yourself. If I knew how to do masonry, don't you think I'd be using the blocks myself instead of selling them for half ******* price? What the **** is wrong with you people? The next one of you ******* jackasses that emails me with some sob-story bullshit is getting his email address added to the North American Man/Boy Love Association mailing list.

You want the blocks? Come get the blocks, and don't **** with me!

Oh, and if anybody hasn't suggested it - buy "Maximum Boost" by Corky Bell and read it cover to cover. It won't tell you specifics about what turbo and what parts, but it will help you select the specs you need and then you can go shopping and pick what parts have those specs. Or you could just take what you learned there and ask good questions.

Don't be mean with him! Just follow the steps:

Every time Hustler tries to e-thug you, you:

A- Check out this picture --->

B- Take a looong breathe.

C- Lol at him

D- Say that you love him. He's like a little puppy: needs attention, and when you trow a ball or a stick for him, he's never able to choose what to pick up and give back.
