yeah i would really like to do the saab setup too as $1500 is not too bad.
i think if u search hard enough and have the resources it might be able to be done under a grand.. well thats what im shootin for..haha.
does anyone know what the stock spring is set at on the saab high pressure turbo? like 7psi?? maybe?
under a grand...? are you taking into account the tune, custum DP, Wideband, injectors, pillar pod, there is NO way you can boost a car for under one grand... a decent boost setup will take about 3grand to be running on the car...
cool man this makes everything look much easier.
Not sure about that.... but I boosted a old 92 sunbird 3.1 L for 750$'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
... what kind of gains are you expecting... if im boosting a 2.2 im hoping to go from the 125ish whp to 210 with the power to make over 300
Nice write up!
you know you can draw oil from the head as well right? its alot easier then doin it from the block
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.
