    under a grand...? are you taking into account the tune, custum DP, Wideband, injectors, pillar pod, there is NO way you can boost a car for under one grand... a decent boost setup will take about 3grand to be running on the car...

    Not sure about that.... but I boosted a old 92 sunbird 3.1 L for 750$'s
    Using all junk yard parts

    But if your talking a good strong reliable kit... your looking at 1500 - 2200
    Counts what you got for parts already and know the right people

    theres a reason you don't want to draw oil from the head.
    there is a restrictor up there.
    to be honest the best place to draw oil from is directly from the pan.

    downpipe = 80 bucks tops, for me 40.
    injectors = 150 used with harness.
    i bought 60s for 40 bucks before on ss.net.
    pillar pod not really needed = 40 used
    wideband = 150 used
    tune = 200

    plus the turbo parts which is on sale on ss.net for 800 right now.

    seriously includes everything you need.even piping and fmic.
    so yes it can be had for less than 3k.

    ---------- Post added at 12:35 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:33 PM ----------

    and how would you draw oil from the oil pan? a pump? and when did they start using a restrictor, i got a head off of a cavy not a cobalt on it
