Default Noob Turbo build Help??

Alright guys so I'm new to the whole turbo scene but I plan on boosting mine in the next 6-8 months. I'm shooting for 250-350 HP 230-300 RWHP. What all do I need internals wise for this kind of power? Will the diff hold up? Suspension upgrades? Tranny upgrades? Pretty much everything lol. I'm not trying to sound like a complete noob that knows nothing I was just hoping for some detailed info? Any info would help and would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Read up first, then read up some more. Then, when you finally think you know enough to ask a real question, STOP, and then read some more. There's nothing you're likely to want to ask that hasn't been asked and answered already. READ!

You'll be glad you did. Only word of caution: though some of the early threads are the best source for basic info, some will be out of date. Also some items are for NA only, but will not be marked as such.

X2. It's not just for learning what to do, it's learning what types of snags are involved and getting an understanding of the true cost of the upgrades.

Get reading.

this is what you need

you need a motor that can take the power
a mechanic who knows what they are doing
lots and lots of money
hundreds of hours of work

pay special attention to item 2....seriously.
