I'm finally getting round to putting my R32 back together and getting it properly sorted. I'm now just using it as a weekend car so I'm back on the idea of a turbo kit.

 

Has anyone priced up a custom turbo kit recently? I worked it out a few years ago and it came to around £3,500 all in. Interested to see if anyone has priced things up a bit more recently

Depends on power goals really and how much of the work you can do yourself. Some bits will have gone up in price just with general inflation and change in currency strength. I’ll probably be sticking my current engine with complete turbo kit and UM mapped ECU up for sale on the weekend which may be of interest.

It’s not that simple really, as IMG says, it depends on your power goal, how much work you can do yourself, what part preferences you have and so on. Do you have any experience building turbo kits?

If I where to build another turbokit, the “base kit” would be about £5,600 in parts only, not including a clutch. That’s good for 400hp, but capeable of 550hp with supporting mods. But I prefer certain parts or brands, based on experience.

Sorry I really should have gave a bit more detail! 

 

Power goal between 400 - 460bhp, standard internals, standard clutch

 

I'm happy to do all spanner work but couldn't do welding, pipe bending, etc. would also need a stand alone ECU I guess?

My current set up is making 450-460hp and lb/ft comfortably 😉. You can use the standard ECU, for that power level it may be overkill to go standalone. Of course standalone has it’s benefits in that it allows you to use management that is programmed to accept MAP as a reference point when calculating fuelling/timing. Guess it depends how much you want to spend. I’d say you’d be ambitious in wanting to keep the standard clutch with a turbocharged set up making more than 400hp. The associated torque would be the killer and the fact with a turbo set up the torque builds and peaks quite suddenly.
