Turbo-performance turbo has been out for quite awhile, so it is already released. So need to make a small correction. As for the WHP that will have to wait for peps who baught the kit to come up to post their dyno sheet.

5-6psi not worth the time or the money, if you want 40-50hp then get a nitrous kit, a hell of a lot cheaper, just get somebody that knows about nitrous to install it for you if you have never done it before!! If you were to change out the internals and then run the boost up to say 14psi-18psi then it would be worth every dime of $3500+ to add a turbo but then if you were running that kind of boost then you would be making some decent power not no measely 40 horses, but thats just my .02 cents!! Not worth $3500 for 40 hp, at least not to me!!

ok lets see.. 800 for a NX kit.. then oh 50 bucks a bottle and you'd have to choose when you want it.. which i'd rather not do :)

if you use it a lot you'll spend wayyyy over 3500

$3500 is not all of whut you spend for turbo... remember to add installation cost, tranny upgrades, air/fuel management, dynos... I know you will end up spending a least another $2-3k... Don't think that you can just swap on a turbo and not upgrade anything, I know for sure that even if nitrous and turbo gives about the same hp, I know that my one time use of nitrous requires tranny upgrades asap... but for you daily drivers and show cars - its just for show, but racers beware and dont be cheap on your upgrades...

I don't have any info on it - if you have any, can you post it in this thread? I'll ad it to the top post. Thx!
Since I'm a huge proponent of legitimate info from the source, I'll give ya some links to sources that can give you the most accurate facts about the XS Engineering turbo kit:

1. The original article from Turbo Magazine two years ago: http://www.newcelica.org/other/reviews/turbo/index.htm

2. The most informative thread on this site about the XS turbo kit. Read the posts from a member named XSPOWER, who is a high ranking guy over at XS Engineering. I verified this by calling him at the shop many months ago:
