ZOOM'IN around Mid-Ohio
I'm thinking/planning on putting a Turbo on my 2.5 Auto 5sp. Any thoughts on durability, parts needed, upgrades, etc? Are there shift kits, Torque converters avail? Thanks.
This man tells the truth, you'll need a custom set up(turbo, piping, engine internals, wastegate, tune, etc), trans/oil coolers, etc... I'd say more in the $15k for a proper set up installed from a good reputable shop.There are options available, but they are ALL fully custom setups. If you were 100% serious about doing it, be prepared to spend about $10,000 and be out of a car for half a year.
Correct. You need transmission, clutch, ecu, and on and on. If only it was easy. Plus you still don't get the better suspension and brakes. In the end it's more cost efficient to buy the speed and build it. Plus when modded correctly the speed has been proven to be reliable.I'm sure 1-2psi it wouldn't even feel different or blow up. I looked about putting a Mazdaspeed 3 engine in my car, but you need more than the engine
Engineers also assisted with turboing the 2.5 sedan that came to 250 to the wheels at 10lbs.So true...especially when they have the turbo'd car in the same family/dealership. The engineers have done all of the work for you. Enjoy their labor.
