The best way to get the most bang for your buck is through a Turbo kit. But Before you install your Evo Turbo there are some cautions you need to know as well as other factors to consider.

Should You Install Your Evo Turbo or Have it Professionally Done?

If you’ve done bolt on installation in the past, like intake, exhaust, and you’re familiar where things are located in your engine then you’re probably good to go. You can expect to spend about 20-25 hours plus you may have to do additional work depending on your turbo and car. The Turbo Manifold will replace the factory exhaust manifold, and the turbo will be mounted on a flange on the turbo manifold.

If your not familiar with your Engine and haven’t installed bolt on parts before then you can call a buddy who has or call around town to find an professional whom can do it for you. This will save you a ton of time, frustration, and unanswered forum reply’s with the subject “ HELP!! SOMETHINGS WRONG WITH MY TURBO” – I’ve seen one today dated a year ago :-/

Cautions before you Buy or Install your Turbo…

A Turbo will have an impact on your whole car’s performance so before you buy or install an Evo turbo you want to be sure that your car can handle the huge power increase.

Most aftermarket kits for naturally aspired engines recommend running no more then 6 to 8 PSI to prevent engine damage.

Your turbo will effect your cars engine, chassis, and driveline so you want to make sure that these parts of your car are in good working condition. If your engine has a crack and your putting more stain on it with more power then you may have yourself an expensive repair that started off just a turbo purchase.

In Summary…

Installing a Turbo will pretty much be an all day job, so you want to decide before you purchase or install your Evo turbo if you will do it or someone else. Also if your car is ready for the power increase, is the engine in working condition, the chassis ok, the driveline? And most importantly are you ready for the added power? :-)

evoturboandyBefore you go off into purchasing a turbo there are a few things you need to know about them first. You need to have a basic understanding of how they work and the whether an evo turbo is what your really looking for.

Basically what a turbo does is…

Really simple without going into shop class 101, your evo turbo basically adds more power to your engine. The tuba shaped turbo rapidly blows tightly compressed air directly into your engine which creates bigger combustion’s and adds more torque to the crank. There are more operations that make the turbo work properly but that’s why you get the turbo as a kit.

Bad News about Evo Turbo Kits…

If you haven’t heard turbo kits are pretty expensive. Yep you can expect the price of a reliable turbo to be around $4 Grand and up without feeling like you’ve been cheated out of your money.

The other bad news is that there is a learning curve from understanding what evo turbo you need to buy without damaging your engine to actually installing it yourself or having someone service it if something goes wrong.

Good News about the Evo Turbo

A turbo kits puts waaaay more power into your engine. And I added the “aaaa” in way because it’s expected, depending on your vehicle specs, 40-60% increase in your engines power.  In most cases it’s cheaper to buy the kit and see an extreme power difference, then buy a $100 piece here and a $250 piece there and see minimal performance difference compared to a complete kit.

In Summary…

Even though a turbo kit takes a tremendous amount of time and money, it’s very much worth it to hear the spool on your turbo, the roar of your external waste gate, the whistle on your blow off valve, and the wind in your face with satisfaction that you built this yourself.

If your ready to feel like you have doubled the size of your engine, then I check out my Evo Turbo section.  If you buy a turbo kit through me I’m going to buy you a Boost Controller for

What will an Evo Turbo do for My HP?

Buying a turbo is the easiest and cheapest way for you to boost your horse power dramatically. It’s a fan that blows compressed air into your intake which add more power to your engine making it seem 2xice as big.

What do turbo kits usually come with?

If you find an evo turbo specifically for your model then it will come complete with the manifold, turbocharger, intake, down pipe, fuel management unit and all lines and hoses needed.  You will need to purchase intercoolers, piping, blow-off valves separately in most cases.  If you are a  the universal evo turbo, then you are just buying the turbine itself (the turbocharge), and have to buy all the piping and manifolds separately as needed to customize your turbo set-up.

Installing your Evo Turbo

A professional is highly advised when installing a turbo, but if your already experienced with installing a Intake, Exhaust, or Headers. Then you might be able to successfully install it.  Average it take around 20-25 hours to complete assuming there is no additional custom work to complete.

Before you install your turbo

Make sure that all of the engine, driveline, and chassis parts can handle big power increases. Most aftermarket turbocharger kits for naturally aspirated cars recommend running no more than 6-8 psi to prevent engine damage

Turbo systems have made the Evo tuner world what it is today. The question is which Evo Turbo for the Evo X gives the best bang for the boost. The three main contenders are Street Assassin, Forced Performance, and Garret. The Street Assassin 50 is the easy, bolt on Evo Turbo. After this relatively quick install, you should expect about a 150 hp gain and high eleven’s on the track.

FP puts a present under your tree with either the Red or Green Evo Turbo. Just like the Street Assissn 50, the FP Green is a bolt up unit that looks almost entirely stock. It gives a shorter spool for quicker power, but can’t match the Red for max horses. The FP Red turbo will get you close to 500hp and high ten’s on the quarter mile. Although, you might be disappointed with the lag and might need to compensate with some cam work

Garret by far has the most variety to offer, although the cost is more decisions, more confusion, and more money. The models for the Evo X include the GT30R, GT35R, and the GT37R. Don’t let the alphabet soup become overwhelming. The numbers correspond to the frame size of the inducer on the exhaust. Essentially, as this gets bigger, there is more potential power, but more lag. This is seen when comparing the GT35R with the GT37R. One blogger claims that the GT37R makes 75 more hp than the GT35R, giving more than 700 whp. The downside is that the GT37R takes longer to spool to give that power.

In short, the Street Assasin is the easiest and cheapest. Pop it in, get the power, and go. The FP options give some variability. Go with FP Green for a stock look with a little more, and choose FP Red if you’re planning to ramp things up later. Garret by far offers the most variability. This lets the die hard get every ounce of performance out of optimizing A/R ratios, trim calculations, and compressor maps. Of course, all this comes with a price.

Evo Aftermarket Parts

I’ve heard the term thrown around here and there but I haven’t really any Idea on what it meant. E8 is an alternative gasoline source then the Petroleum that we put at the normal gasoline stations. There is also an Evo that beat a world record using E8 fuel.

Most people are afraid we we start talking gasoline conversions, running your car on water, or other alternate fuel sources. But In times like these you need to think outside the box and at least be open to the idea of it. I found a Video of someone explaining how the conversion takes place.

Pro’s to this is that it’s cheaper then the gas you see, and burns better for the enviroment and your car.

Con’s is that there aren’t that many E8stations around and if there is they may be out of your way to even take advantage of the better fuel alternative.

Just Google Ethanol station and see where’s the nearest your location.

If you can’t find any E8 stations in your area go here to learn about using H2O instead.

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls… Your about to witness a Cheap Evo burn rubber  past a Ferrari in a drag race. This car was gone… I mean Ive seen some fast evo mitsubishi but I almost feel sorry for the Exotic Car.  I mean if you bought a ferrari for 200k and you raced a honda civic and it beat you how will you feel about that?
