    know much about mvaux, turbo conversion?

    hey

    iv been looking on www.mvaux.com at the x16xe turbo conversion kit. but i have a z16xe! but im thinking that the kit would still fit my z16xe provided i then buy a x16xe cat and pipes?

    does anyone know if these mvaux kits are any good?

    are they purely bolt on or what?

    im assuming i have to get the car remapped accordingly but...

    any advice?

    Hi,

    Don't know much about it, but the only thing I know is that it is not a complete kit.

    At a guess, you'll also need:
    - Intercooler
    - Intake piping
    - Fifth injector kit
    - Oil cooler (possibly)
    - Remap (taking the fifth injector into consideration)

    Regal/Dbilas do one for the Z16, maybe better off going for that one if that's the route you want to take.

    yeh i know dblias do one, but thats like £4000 lol

    one because of the it being dblias, well respected good quality kit. but also that kit comes with the intake manifold, not specifically need. also the dblias air intake system, also not specifically needed and so on...

    all that brings the price up, to well, way out my budget! £600-£1000 i could afford in a couple of months...

    wont work mate, the z16 is flybywire throttle unlike the other being cable and the x16xe has different manifold mounts too so the manifold wont sit or seal
