Are they getting a turbo upgrade is that why your getting it for cheap? I would use that extra money maybe and get a custom manifold made specifically for the Kia. I dunno thats just me. You could be the guinea pig for Turbo-kits.com

If the flow rate (lbs/min)of the Gen Coupe is similar to the one use by TurboKit you should expect the similar gain, but you'll need ALL the rest!!!

There's a lot more than a turbo in a full kit!!!! A turbo may be around 20% of the total price of a turbo kit.
My 2 pennys!

Yup its a lot of work get the precise setup that will yield the best results and having knowledge of each part and what it does is helpful. Just research on turbos and our engines to make sure your going in the right direction.

i will i love my car but i know the aluminum block is not that strong
disagreed. People with the gen coupe (same block) have been running 20psi with it. Thats roughly 450 hp. All our internals are forged. Don't see how the aluminum block would be construed as week.

Yea you should be fine its not the block really so much as internals i believe that would not handle the stress.
