Yes, but we suggest the car is taken to a DYNO and run and checked to make sure the turbo is set up and running 100% correctly before you really go beating on it. We suggest this for any customer, any car, any kit. For the $100 or so to DYNO the car. It's cheap insurance :)

the AEM FIC that comes in the package is pre-programmed map or we have to roll the car on dyno to get it tune from zero?

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but was wondering when aturbo kit would be coming out for the 2.0L 5 A/T? Isee TurboKits site only has a kit for the 2.0L 6 speed MT & AT listed and heardit wasn’t advised to run the kit in the 5 speed auto? Anyone have advise on this? Any mods requied to install a kit on the 5 speed auto?

Brew, we have been focusing on the 6MT kit for the new generation 3.8L V6 Coupes. We have not turbo'd a 2.0L 5AT. Our kits have been on the 6MT and 6AT so those are the transmissions we are most familiar with. Thanks.

TURBOKITS.com HAS A KIT FOR THE 2.0L FORTE NOW - $3895.00!!!

SUCCESS!!!! We made 275HP (220WHP) and 250 Ft Lbs (200tq) at 7 PSI on our mustang AWD DYNO. The car runs like stock, silky smooth, but get into it and it comes to life. The car feel almost as good as the 2.4L! On top of it all, we did about 300 miles straight highway and averaged 34 MPG! I think we have a winner!

Stock -vs- Turbo DYNO















Thanks

Turbo Kits include a lot of parts and heavy parts at that. Shipping them 1/2 way around the work is unfortunately no cheap. Especially with the COVID rate increases we have seen on shipping across the board. However, I would be glad to get you a 100% accurate shipping quote if you'd like. Just PM us your full address details and we can get you a total. We do have really competitive rates!
