I peice together DIY kits with what i have layin around the shop.
We make humongous turbos, or some mediocre twins; Just depends on if u want torque or massive power.

i have almost no lag at all,running 3rd gear at 35-40 mph at about 2700rpm's when i mash the throttle to the floor i get sideways for about 30 feet. but then again i have bald 295/50's to.the only time i experienced any kind of lag is when im in a high gear and my rpm's arent up . any thing over 2700 rpms and im GONE.the turbo i use is about a perfect match for a 306 you can find in a junk yard.
