I know that I am forgetting some of the other stuff but this is what I remember off the top of my head.

Well, here are some of the pictures that I took of the kit so far, and I am going to take more in the time up to come and add pics as we build the car. I am not going to be able to do the install right away because of school and money. This project has about tapped me out and school and work leave me no time to work on the car.

I will be showing the progression of the project in the months to come. I plan on doing the fuel system and an RBC as my next moves on this project but they are going to have to wait.


Well, enough talk, here are the pics.






























And the car its going on:

nice man, any idea when this is going on your car? i was thinking about going peakboost for my hatch instead of full race
I am going to have to wait a bit longer to install this.

I had some un-expected bills to take car of recently and I am back in school full time for grad school and I am currently working 2 different jobs.

I am going to have to wait until I have the money to buy the last few things that I need to buy then I will install it and have it tuned right away.

I also have to put the car to its complete stock form, which means remove the race header, motor mounts, & kpro so I can get my tranny replaced under warranty before I boost it. I have had tranny problems since I bought this car, but it is just getting to the point that the stealership will replace it for me.

sweet kit.....if u dont mind me askin, price for PB turbo kit?(w/coating)
Well, I was given a special rate because I have been dealing with Peakboost since the inception of this kit and I have been in constant contact and waited many many months for the final production pieces to be produced.

I have been dealing with Ken and then Todd on this kit since around Feb. I think? Maybe a bit longer.

My kit was the first that they were ceramic coating so they gave me the cost of the coating at their cost.

But just to let you know, I think to have everything ceramic coated (manifold, DP, Dumptube, and turbo housing) and also the intercooler anodized like I did would cost about $600

The Price on the turbo kit varies due to different size turbo options and if you want a journal bearing turbo or a ball bearing turbo.

Your best bet is to call up Peakboost and ask for Todd or if he is not around ask for Ken. :thumbsup:
