Hi guys, what do your think about this turbo? I really need some advice here cause I don't want to spend a lot of money...I found someone that makes manifold for 400$CAN. But now I need a turbo, DSM turbo are rare in my area(quebec)...Oh and someone know how much is for all the piping for the intercooler???<br>Thx <p></p><i></i>

A little bit off topic as well as not sure about turbo but the intercooler from it works fine. A few mods need to be done but is a nice thick one and doesnt take up too much room in our little beasts!<br><br>Just my lil tid bit!<br><br><br><br><br> <p></p><i></i>

If you can make about 200 HP at the wheels with about 12-15 PSI of boost, I will estimate that at 7 PSI you should be at 130-140 HP at the wheels.<br><br>WIlfredo <p></p><i></i>

If your gonna use a DSM turbo get the 2G one. It's a T-25 and it's smaller than the 1G 14B's. The 14B would be way too big for the Swift. I know a bunch of ricers that use the T-25 on their Ci#ics. <p></p><i></i>

Do a websearch HighTimes...<br><br>Quick point: you will have to do alot of custom modification<br>to your car to install a turbo. This is definately not a<br>'bolt-on' mod! Plan on sourcing out a custom turbo header<br>or building your own (to fit the turbo you find),<br>plus doing alot of other piping mods and possible<br>electronic engine control mods too! Pistons work sometimes<br>is needed and exhaust will need mating up to the turbo.<br><br>Good luck - I'd suggest you save roughly $3500US<br>to buy a custom setup or doing some research online to<br>find out how others have done turbo mods.<br><br>Darryl <p></p><i></i>

welding skills or a buddy who can weld, would be highly recommend for this. Even if you have the manifold built, there are still many other things like the intercooler and that which you would have to build.<br><br> <p><br><a href="http://www.teamswift.net"><img src="http://members.home.net/2832075173/pics/Swiftafter1c.jpg"></a></img><br>Kyle Jones <b>1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</b><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.</p><i></i>
