Default Re: Turbo kit

On a third gen engine like yours, you can expect to have broken ring lands within the first few weeks of boost.
Either build an engine with forged internals as mentioned by others, or find a suitable first gen engine. They handle boost better than second and third gen engines.
Regardless, that kit is incomplete and does not factor in the tuning aspect, which requires a full stand alone ECU. Any other version of tuning will be short lived and is not proper.
Avoid boost unless your pockets are deep and you have a second car for a daily driver.
