ok guys heres the deal...........i just got a custom manifold done for my 12a by a friend who specializes in rotary engines and he got me a great deal on all the other parts ( 62-1 garret turbo, 23x20x2.5 intercooler, fuel pump and all the custom fittings) for under 1300$. he asked me afterward if i thought he could sell this setup in a kit online for 12a's with carbs.



so heres the question, how many of you would be interested in a kit for turbo on your 1st gen or any other car with a 12a carby motor? he's making the kits per customer specs meaning that depending on what your hp expectations and your cars porting specs he will make you a kit just for your setup. prices will vary of course but let me just say that your not gonna find a kit for 12a's cheaper, trust me i tried and just ended up going to him

I am highly interested as well. I want a turbo, so i can keep up with my dads turbo talon. That would be nice. He's pushing over 300 hp but o well. Let me know if you are going to start selling them.

yeah how about im gonna be doing 400 whp for about 2000$ i dont think you can get much better. especially when that price includes a garret 62-1, custom turbo mani, giant fmic(23x20x2.5) all the fittings, and getting the motor pinned.



let me just say that the turbo alone would cost you about 800-900$ if you tried to get it on your own

hey, watch how you talk to the guys on my section, ok. you non seven owner, you.



and, my friend is looking into modifying a T2 manifold to fit a 12A. how much you think the manifold alone would go for??

thanks.

HELL YES I WANT A KIT!! WHERE DO I PAY? What else is needed though? I mean, assuming someone (me) has a stock Nikki setup, what all would need to be done? I was just starting to look into this myself, and im not sure still on what all needs to happen under my hood...
