Hi.

So been reading, div topics, seartch the net, etc etc.. but still feals like I dont know ****. So thought I ask you guys if you could give me some advice.

I got the 2 gen rx, but got the 13b-re engine in it. But want to change the stock twins. A) they dont deliver the hp I want, B) want to simplefy my engine bay. C) want something that is somewhat more reliable.



What do I want .. ?

I want: A turbo that spools up quick, want boost to kick in early, the top end power is not so important, but low and midrange power is important.

Powervice Im interested in 400 hp, but will survive with 350 hp , too

Want kit, manifold, turbo etc can someone please recomend an kit they have running on their car, and are happy with.. ?

Apriciate replyes a lot

The HKS cast manifold with a 60-1 should be more than adequate to get you what you have listed as your goal.

350-400hp.....apexi kit, t04e, 60-1, or even a gt35/40 would do just fine and spool quick. Keep in mind you'll need to beef up your fuel system, intercooler, clutch, ignition, ect.... to do it right.

i think he is looking for a kit that will cover all his needs. Which in that case I just want to say, i find it cheaper and better overall to piece together your own kit. You can get exactly what you want out of your car, instead having "just another one of those"

Just wondering , if somone have had a good experience with the stock twins .. ? Seen " upgrades" of the stock twins.. Its a Ifini upgrade, better flow etc etc.. Does enyone know something about this upgrade.. ?

The stock twins, make the air werry hot at high boost levels, and therfore make detonation happen.. right.. ? What are "safe" boost levels using this turbo. ?The Ifini upgrade, what kind of hp does this deliver....safe... 280-300. ?

Yeah, and forgot.. If I use the twin turbo setup, I must use the stock ECU too, right. ?



Teknics,( nice flames , by the way ) agree, best to make own kit, but have not the experience,, YET, to do so.

But if anyone can recomend some parts, I apriciate it.

What I need / want.. well early boost, spools up quick, low and mid power wanted..
