    That's what I was thinking too. You'd still need all the other bits like an intercooler and exhaust, and probably a remap I'd say

    its not that cheap, the guy buys them from a fella in Brazil or somewhere called matheus, then he marks the price up and sells them on. If you want this kit i would be cheaper and easier to go one migweb and buy them from him direct as a couple of guys have for the C20 LET's. Kits are good quality too. But bear in mind that you need a lot more than just the bits supplied here to run 300Bhp.

    Yes, the turbo can produce boost for 300bhp, but your engine can't take it.

    You will need pistons, injectors, mapping, exhaust, air filter, uprated boost pipes, possibly steel rods.
