Ship your car to FL do a 3SGTE engine swap and drop down $15,000 with the shop and you got one at 400WHP (tunned low for reliability issues).
Get a C2Power high boost kit with low comp pistons, rods, studs, tranny gears with LSD and spend around $10,000
Get same thing done at SF for around $10,000.
You should read up on turbo and learn about these stuff, you need to not only learn about what kit includes you should read up as to what problems people with turbo already encountered.

hmmmm.....

1) draper or sf kit (w/out their ECU): $3000
2) pistons & rods : $1100
3) Power fc (or wait for the AEM EMS): $1300
4) install (roughly): $700- $1000
5) electronics: $400
6) injectors (?): $450
6) tuning: $500
7) clutch: $350
8) exhaust: straight pipe by muffler shop: $170


almost $8500....

He said GTS - no such thing as a Draper kit.

You also forgot studs, gasket kit, flywheel bolts, upgraded clutch and pressure plate.

In reality tuning will also exceed $500 because of dyno time. $1000 - $1500 is more realistic.

You are correct. It's a good thing you brought it up. He would have to buy the XS kit in that case. It comes with the Power FC and would basically be the same price as the other kits w/out ecu + power fc.

I didnt forget the clutch but i didnt think of the other products. Why are studs and flywheel bolts required?

Stock head, main, and flywheel bolts are non-reusable because they are intentionally stretched during installation. You need new Toyota flywheel bolts and new Toyota bolts or ARP studs for the mains and head.

SF kit works perfectly well with PFC, there's absolutely no reason to go XS

Actually the SF tuner kit + injectors and power FC is cheaper than the XS, and XS is not delivering kits right now anyways - they cite some production problem that they are not disclosing the nature of.

And Matt already answered your other question

to make a very long answer short - the stock internals will only RELIABLY hold about 250whp; if you wanna raise to boost any more than that, you need to buy some pistons, rods, and preferably sleeves

Production GTS kit has been available for a long time. The 03 + GTS (DBW) kit is now available as well.
