Re: has anyone upgraded their turbo? (liquidforce1887)

Basically, all the plumbing will need to be custom made, so if you're really up for it, find a custom shop and plan on spending at least a few grand for parts + tuning.<p>If you have less than a grand to spend, your only options are ECU tune (BSR/IPD/etc) and then easy bolt-ons (intake, downpipe, exhaust) though it seems you already have those.<p>Again, just plumbing in a bigger turbo wont do you any good, the ECU needs to be retuned to allow greater boost, regardless of what turbo is on the car.
