Default Soon to be turbo!

Well after careful thought and deliberation, i had my choices narrowed down to the greddy kit, or the basic Begi kit. My problem with the greddy kit is that i would need to swap down pipes right away(greddy=too small), id need to rig an i/c set up right away, no blow off valve, im going megasquirt so the fmu was going to waste, and i didnt feel like dealing with a cracked manifold down the road. ANYHOW.....i ended up buying Tim from begi's, personal custom S3 kit! Im happy with my desision and i think ill enjoy a prefabbed QUALITY kit appossed to a half diy kit. The turbo it comes with is a hybrid Gt2854. Its a little small compared to a 2871 or 2860 but for what i want to make it will do me just fine. Install pics and dyno numbers soon to follow!
