Turbo choice's 1 Year, 1 Month ago Karma: 3
My turbo is about to let go. It's a rev3 1994 I don't know what I have. And Im wondering what's the best replacement. Ct20/Ct26. There a lad in the states who says his turbo was built by Kent Barnes of turbo charged systems and it's a stage2 CTX-20b 3" inlet and what should I be paying for 2nd hand or newly rebuilt. And I'm wondering is that a good stepping stone on a turbo. Will it fit my car and Without having to change a lot like cat fitment or de-cat pipe. And I can keep the original mani. I want more power but I need guidance. I would like to upgrade turbo, cams, clutch&flywheel and fuelling system

Any help is really appreciated

It's worth having a read through this before buying anything:
www.mrcontrols.com/primers/power.htm

That is not the be all and end all but a good first overview of what to look out for.

There's 3sgte turbo kits available at TB Dev's shop, worth a look: www.tbdevelopments.com/catalog/index.php...f6a2961ff8e3c94d7842

Fair warning that the cheapest option here is to get your turbo re-conditioned, if you want more power then it will cost €€€ - but you do get more fun that way.

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

OK then how much are you prepared to spend?

The reason I ask is because we can asses what should be upgraded and how much power you can roughly expect.

I always thought this was a good saying about tuning cars: Cheap, fast, reliable, choose two options.
