This turbo seems the be the same one APR (www.goapr.com) is selling. However, they also include a new manifold. Remember you will also need to ugrade your exhaust and pay for installation. Even with the KOr kit (www.awe-tuning.com) your are still going to spend in excess of $3K unless you do teh work yourself.

Well, the install looks prettty simple actually if you have at least basic mech skills and tools.

I personally think 300HP with a FWD is asking for trouble (AWD would rock!!!) but would still be fun no doubt.

Since your adding a Manifold with the APR kit its probably a 6 hour job (vs 4 for the Garrett)

Who writes the ECU code for Garrett? Themselves?
