So far all i've really found is that Hellion kit, and judging from what you've said that 6300$ kit turns into an easy 9-10 grand if you had a mechanic tune it, etc.
Spools up quick, but I am not really happy with the location of the turbo. There are other kits, but one has been saying "available in 3 weeks" for over a year; the other one there isn't a lot of information and when we called to order they couldn't give us any time frame for when it would ship.
Also, with all the problems we ran into with the Hellion and their tuner it was interesting that they pulled it off their website. Lots of calls were placed by MRT to Hellion with issues. If you can get the kit, plan on a tuner kit regardless of what you order because Blow By Racing tuning is aptly named. The really blow as a tuners; if we had known beforehand that Hellion uses BBR, we would have just gone ahead with the tuner kit and set up a local dyno tune.
And yes, it is easy to get up in price when you end up installing and tuning the Hellion (or any turbo for that matter).
