A good guess, my buddies 300ZX with an estimated 330 rwhp could pull a car lenth on C5s.

I think when this is all done, you should do an official DIY for this.

Also, didn't have time to read every post... but where was this turbo kit bought?

This is the DIY

Didn't buy a kit. I started buying parts a few months back.

Turbonetics 50 trim stage 3 wheel, just rebuilt, never used

42# Injectors

Porsche 803 Maf

Turbo motor mount

External Wastegate

And ect.

Just pieced it all together and it's actually all working out well so far.

Hmm.. if I was to go with this project, I'm feelin buying a bulk of it from ebay, then piecing the rest with what else I need.

I'm talking one big write up, not just showing what you're doing. Or at least a list of eeeverything you need. Haha just to help me out, and make things easier.
