Default godspeed turbo questio

Ok I was browsing ebay and come across a godspeed t3 turbo kit for 500 dollars says itll make between 300-500 horses depending on setup and tune. It was an impulse but I think im going to buy it however I would like to hear reviews or get advice on setup. My motor is 2.4l turbo ho bone stock besides k &n airfilter and bov conversion and I have a high flow cat with flow master exhausrt.

Impulse buying in general is most often a...lose

The kit.... Bad Idea!


This.... First the key advertised words..."supports up to" X=HP!

Lets consider?

What is the point?


So you can do a Dyno pull and "spike" some ridiculous number for bragging about (get N20) instead) only to be blown off the 1/4 with another PT with a better linear power curve and near half as much spiked power as you spike?

So you can run a few days with high HP before blowing your engine into scrap?

So you can spend endless amounts of money on other parts trying to make that kit actually work only fairly well

LOL

Go for IT!

Or try spending a few hours and actually use this forum for it experience and do some serious thread and post reading. Use the search feature or just go to the Turbo PT section and READ!!!

Hint! To start , think simple, think PCM tuning!
And than go from there.

Those days may be gone but, just the sound of a supercharger on a BB Chev or the throaty sound of the Chry Scat Pack cars is enough to turn most anybodys head and just look at the grin on the drivers face as his car idles and shakes in time with lope of the hi lift cam.
Days that we will never live again.

Thank you for the honest answer I am not looking for bragging rights or to race lol. I just like to improve and I have done some thread searching and seen a bunch of mods I can do such as pcm upgrades etc I just seen the kit and thought about it. That is why I posted here to get some more info from more experienced cruisers than I am.

I saw your other thread about thinking of switching transmissions. IMHO spend the money on your automatic upgrading a couple of things and spend some thought to getting a STAGE 1, DSP or DST, a carefully thought out custom exhaust system, and if you want some solid power numbers that are not "spikie" get a Performance head and cam combo!

If you did this you would be far ahead of most PT performance modders of ages!

In case you didn't get the basic idea above. That kit will not give you 500 hp spike or otherwise with out other mods. That may include custom head, cams, PCM, or PCM tuner ect.

*The forums search feature is for dreamers on performance upgrading.

But if you are serious,

What is your goal?
How much can you do yourself? (tools and experience)

The biggest one is $$
How much allotted for the project and in what steps of amounts are available?

If you are not honest and realistic than *


The first steps before upgrading the engines output of any vehicle:

Ascertain general overall engine condition:
Compression test on engine
Leak down test
Cooling system pressure test
Block test

Complete inspection of:
Brake system
Suspension system
Tires and wheels


Normal things to do prior upgrades:
Ignition system Tune up
Change all fluids:
Engine oil/filter
Transmission oil and filter
Brake fluid
Coolant

Im being completely honest when I post this. I have experience in rebuilding and upgrading v8s with carbs on it. As I completely built and upgraded my 302 crete motor for my 51 ford coupe. I dont have a ton of experience with modern computer systems turbos or superchargers tho I know the basics. I have about 2k worth of a budget. And I know the basics of suspension system and brake system. And ill just say to me its not about having the faster car or racing tho I love racing. To me cars are a passion im trying to learn as much as possible and hope to open a performance shop some day. Its just what I love. I constantly tinker on my 51 ford and now that ive gotten into cruiser id like to learn as much as I can about them and do the work on them myself. I litterally wake up thinking about cars and sleep thinking about them. I am a father and husband and my sons also interested in cars so id like to pass it along.
