    Looks like full race makes a kit, bet those motors are like safe to 8psi or something around there with a good tune. Total speculation tho.

    Install is easy, just like any other turbo build. its very straight forward with some tight spots but I managed to run my intercooler piping relatively easily and oil drain and feed is pretty easy as well. I ran my TB25 turbo up to 17psi and my GT28 im currently working to put in I hope for at least 10-12psi

    Although the biggest issue was (and still is the exhaust) VERY tight, kind of close to the alternator and without removing the AC compressor entirely I dont think its possible to run anything bigger than a little ebay TB25 turbo
