Not to be a repeater, but if I had a dollar for evertime I heard that also LOL.

He have all been there at one time.

After you get used to 6 psi feels like riding a moped unless its first gear.

For the $2500-$3000 you can pick up a used stage 1 kit you are much better off IMO, unless you have tons of time and really really enjoy doing things yourself.

I do.

I have a shop with most tools
my dad owns and operates a garage (hes the king of DIY)
bro-inlaw builds race cars from tube steel
a guy in my area just finished his homebuilt turbo busa and offered to help.

I'm just about done rebuilding a 53 chevy and will need another project for this winter so...

Cool, sounds like fun. Dyno tuning is the most important part. You going to lower compression or leave it stock for now? I guarantee you will be so impressed with 6 psi............................. for a little bit, then you will just 8 or 9 psi.........then more LOL. I have been there done that. Started off with a hahn stage 1 4 years ago at 7 psi making low hp, then turned boost up, then lowered compression S2000 injectors, external gate, blow off valve, 344 hp with that kit, over the winter went with an intercooled stage 2 setup at 461 hp with the tire spinning hard.

I make gear based boost controllers if you are ever interested, not that you would ever want to increase boost LOL.

Gary Evans has a very informative site and he is definitely a DIY guy, he made a billet intake, his own 3 inch full exhuast, header also I think, he started with a Hahn kit and slowly transformed into a very nice very clean kit.

Never heard of him do you know the site url?


also my last boss just opened a cnc machine shop and said if I can get a part for him to measure and go by then he would cut anything I want for cost of material plus me sweeping floors and what not...
not sure about the legality of the copy or how Id get my hands on an origial to begin with...

Thanks for the info!

AWSOME polish job on the parts!


I'd hate to know how much $ you have tied up in your kit

Stage 2 with air to air intercooler with dump pipes was $7500
Another $500 for full exhaust with polished can

H beam Carillo Rods $930
HD Valve Springs $130 or so I think
ARP Head Studs $165

I could keep going on LOL but I think that was about it for turbo stuff. I have a lot more in the bike now, plus a billion hours sanding and polishing.

But I can run 16 psi of boost on pump gas with the intercooler, love it love it love it.
