Default Any news on the NC Turbo kits?

Must...have..boost. NOW


Going to be to be a long classified coming up in the very short future.

And i believe begi was doing a remote mount turbo setup on the NC in their shop. not sure if thats how the final setup is going to be on that car, or if they were just ******* around. Im sure someone can chime in on here.

If you like Bandaids so much (yes the word deserves to be capitilized) take comfort in knowing that your 305's will be going onto another Bandaid setup if you sell them to me

i know Cosworth came up with a s/c for it as well as a crazy all-motor build. Also, NOPRO did a 2.3L swap into one too (non-direct inject).

The cost to gain ration for the Cosworth is ridiculously low. It's almost 6k for ***** sake.

That's what happens when you're th efirst one to put out a f/i kit... and your name is Cosworth. But then again, look at how much a full FM or BEGI kit goes for... it's really not that far off.

Most kits for 'new' cars are at least 5-6k for a complete kit. Its not unheard of to have kits for cars in the 12 grand range and much higher.

For an RX8 you're looking at a minimum of 6k for a decent turbo kit.

6K is fair seeing as how purchased kits from known vendors make aftermarket powertrain warranties easier to acquire.
