:helpsmilie: Ok, I want to go with FI but I don't want the car to lose its reliability. I am a college student and this is the only car I have and I want roughly about 300-350rwhp, no more than 350rwhp though. I want to add FI without compeletly redoing the engine. I was think about going with GReddy or APS, but I'm not sure any help would be great THANKS!!!!!

Go for a Stillen S/C...that would be the best choice IMO for the price and power you want. That or Turbonetics, Vortech, and ATI Procharger.

I think the APS single turbo system would be ideal for your application, (a very complete FI system with all of the harware necessary to make sure the engine operates safely) a very easy install and super reliable when utilised with the stock engine, no need to replace the stock exhaust if you like to keep the exhaust noise very stealth. :cheers:

As a college kid on a budget (although probably a nice one if you can afford a Z and FI) I'd go with the Stillen SC. It will give ya the hp/tq figures you're looking for, plus, the only thing you have to change is the spark plugs. The stillen is a real bolt-on.. can be installed in ~6 hours if you're experienced.

i agree, the aps is very desirable, but more expensive than supercharger kits. you can keep the boost low on the aps kit to get the desired boost level. other note(correct me if i am wrong aps) the 25 kits aps made are spoken for and the next batch, due in mid fall, has already been spoken for by an authorized aps dealer. if you want boost now, go with a vortech. its the most cost effective kit-wise, and install wise. you want flexibilty without having to rob a bank, aps and turbonetics seem the route to go. if you want the ultimate setup, the aps and greddy twins seem to fit the bill. i know that there are other kits out there, but these are the ones that seem in demand right now.

I would say since you are not planning on upgrading that the Vortech SC would be the way to go. if you search well, you can find great deals on them and it will provide you what you are wanting easily...

I just got my vortech kit on and tuned and it dynoed at 364, and the only other performance mod I have right now is a dual exhaust, everything else is stock.... but not for long!!!! :)

The Vortech has only been released for MT; it is not 50-state legal.

The Stillen requires a modded or new hood, so figure on more $$$ and time. Only Stege 2 is 50-state legal. No mention of MT/AT.

Procharger doesn't mention AT/MT limits, may be 50-state legal.

The APS Single and Twin Turbos "Require torque capacity upgrade by trans specialist"(!?!) 50-state legal? No way.

BTW, don't figure on a "6 hour install" either - even Stillen says 12 hours average time...not including the hood.

Just to clarify your post, most states within the US test to the IM 240 federal hot engine emission test.

I'm absolutely positive that the APS twin turbo system will easily past this engine emission test (federal US engine emission test) though as of now APS does not have a CARB EO (CA approval for engine emissions) though we hope to test for a CARB EO later this year. :cheers:
