    ive looked at this kit before but im assuming there must be more to it than just the turbo, or will it just bolt on like the std k04 does? using std mannifold and downpipe etc?

    ok, so what sort of gains would i expect from this using std mannifold downpipe etc? i have the 386cc inj but could use 4 bar fpr if needed,and i have a miltek full system inc hi flow cats, im not after huge gains from it, and i could always upgrade the rest later on, thanks for your help by the way, daz

    All the info is on the site, and ChrisS3 from here runs an ATP eliminator too.

    Do a search.
