hi i think this is the right place to post this
i have a vr commodore v6 and it is stripped out and i use it for 1/8 mile drag racing and burnout comp at end of a day of racing
and i recently got a little turbo and want to put it on my car and as my car is a budget car and im only on really bad 1st year aprentice wages and dont have the money for a intercooler and the extra pipeing that goes with that as of yet
so what i was wondering will it make a fair gain if i run no intercooler (i am only planning on about 10psi boost)?
please leave feed back

nope not worth even trying without a cooler will be pumping out around 100 degrees C air at 10psi a cheapo 150 buck 300x600x76 cooler is all you need

Personally 10psi is too much without cooler you prolly make 6 and get away with it. Be worth it at the drags

the main aim is so it keeps up good revs while doing burnouts thats all i want a turbo for.
because im also saving for some happy gas

$2500
Comes with:

-manifolds, crosspipe, dump to cat, 38mm wastegate (7PSI) plumbed back
-turbo, intake pipe and filter
-oil line and return to sump
-cooler pipes and silicon joiners
-cooler and mounting pieces
-bov
-slimline thermo fan (chopped up to fit in front of rad looks rough but works perfect and is hidden away)
-rocker covers with fittings and pipes for catch can plumbed into intake

-super6 injectors
-tuned computer
-bosch 044
-surge tank
-hoses to set the surge tank in the boot
-wiring for pump with switch (anti theft), 2nd relay wired set to prime and run with standard intank

-turbo timer
-AFR gauge
-boost gauge
-fire extinguisher

What you will need is an elbow to go from the turbo oil drain into the sump, needs to be welded in. Apart from that this is all you will need to get boosting

yeah costs me $2500 to build a kit with new parts so its a good deal really not the sort of thing you do cheaply really thats the price to make a kit with chinese turbo and wastegate etc can soon escalate to much higher price if you buy brandname gear at new prices LOL
