Make me a VGT kit

I give up. My kids and job are keeping me way too busy, and the wife is doing her best to take up the rest of my time. I have a jeep liberty turbo sitting in the garage. I have a inter cooler sitting next to it, and one on my car now. Drop me a PM with your sales plan that I buy your "kit" so I can spend time with them and still have time to install my VGT- not spend it finding/buying fabricating it all.

I hate feeling so lazy, but without a garage and time, I sent you a PM.

So, Brian, what are you estimating as the parts cost? At $250 over the cost of the parts, I might be seriously interested in that deal myself...

do you have a general idea of the improvements that could be expected? I dont really worry about HP numbers, but what will this do to 0-60 times?

Little to none in 0-60. It's 30-60 where VNT/VGT makes all the difference in the world. Instead of having to down shift to spool it is instant spool.

so still the 0-60 would improve. I need to have better 0-60 for on ramps here

It will definitely lower 0-60 (improve acceleration). You basically shift the torque curve to the left.

You are right. I was thinking of the gasser charts I had seen. With the ALDA removed this is certainly a big improvement.
