Post your location. If you are a skilled mechanic, I would recommend a DIY setup. If you know only basics, I would buy a kit. Greddy is the cheap route, but you'll end up replacing everything anyway. 4psi, won't impress you. Do the turbo right the 1st time, search a lot, and learn.

I started with the Greddy and then gradually DIYed everything, for a similar price if you cant make your own parts the Begi S might be a better Idea. Then when you want to upgrade you can just buy ad on parts from them.

**** A GReddy kit.

See Bellengineering.net and Flyinmiata.com

then call each and discuss your options, pick the one you feel more comfortable with.
