Sterlin F1 Turbo Kit

Sterlin F1 has just released their turbo kit for the 2.4 finally! The numbers are impressive, 299hp 267tq tuned. Concept III is setting the price at $5k. Its a pretty penny. Worth it? Maybe get a group buy going for a cheaper price.

Your thoughts?

For $5K (plus more $$$ for the installation) why not trade in your car and buy a 2.0 Turbo? Plus you really need a tune as well. Who does that? And in the end who really knows how well the turbo will perform? And besides, your engine/ transmission warranty is no good once it is installed.

The cost of reverting my car back to stock and trading it in for a turbo would cost more than 5k.

To install and TUNE by a reputable shop (versus most of those fly by night organizations you see popping up) is going to run you in the vicinity 1500 - 2500. Everyone tends to forgets this and a GREAT many skip this step

5000 is the installed price with a tune.
You guys aren't reading the whole post. It includes everything even the lower oil pan so you don't have to modify your and risk having a leaky pan due to bad welds.

5000 and be faster then a 2.0t lol, i would do it it's not hard to install a turbo kit, mainly on a new car bolts just come right off. And with what you will lose with a trade-in you be better off get the kit and calling it a day.

No thanks! I mean it's nice, but not 5K nice. Now if someone wants to buy me one, I'm not too proud to take it.
