5sp Turbo?

ok bored just sold a flat so a bit flush, anyone know where i could get this done and how much i would be looking at?

was going to chop it in for a range rover sport as my dad said i should get a proper car LOL but, decided to buy another place yet another to rent out to student scum, so i feel like treating myself BUT i dont want to be bent over backwards for the pleasure!

I know the greddy is about £2k over here aand about £3k fitted thats okish but i have the 5sp so would need rejigging and for that i would prefer jusdt to grab a different one in asia (i need a holiday anyway been flat out getting my flats ready for renting and getting a new job to boot) so i would like to know what i can do in the UK without having to explain a large metal thing in my suit case to the nice folk at customs preferably.

If you are thinking of a holiday - why not try the states m8?

The Mazsports turbo seems to be a lot more reliable than the Greddy...and it gives ya more oomph too. Check the main forums out for that (looooong thread going already) and pm the guy who started it - he is pretty sound and will respond to queries.

I'm currently stationed in Singapore and the only ready made kits that you can purchase would be the Greddy. But you'll need to find a local garage to tune it for you. Price ranges from about SGD$8k (about £2.7k) so thats not worth the time - might as well get it done back home.

An alternative would be a supercharger. Two main ones for sale would be the Blitz supercharger which is a straight bolt on - no tuning necessary and is a 80bhp add-on.

The Knightsports supercharger also gives 80 bhp and has less components...but this one would need tuning.

Best bet for you imo would be the Blitz. Less hassle and when ya wanna sell the car, the bolt on would be a lot easier to remove and sell on seperately if you so wished.
