aftermarket turbo?

I may get a turbo kit in the future and was wondering what all is out there? I found the hypermax and banks kits and the hypermax is right at $2000 compared to $3000 for the banks. What is the perferred kit between banks and hypermax? Is there anymore companies that make a good kit for the idi's?

I just can't stand Banks because they are buddy-buddy with the EPA (and I can't stand Auburn either). I'd go with hypermax

ATS stopped making kits and sold their back parts stock, don't call them

luckily the turbo is a garrett T3/T4 hybrid so you don't need ATS, anyone can rebuild your turbo, etc.

Yea, I looked at the ATS website and they dont list the idi kits anymore. Do you know if there is a general preference between the banks and hypermax kits?

I think the Banks is wastegated and the Hypermax isn't.

Wastegated turbo's reach max boost at a lower RPM.

I thought Hypermax was using a wastegated turbo now, but I sure don't know.

Save your $, make your own turbo kit (if you have tools and fab knowledge)

Last time I looked, the "pulse" system was non wastegated. I don't ever remember seeing any other.

They are out there if your patient. I lost bidding on 2 banks then won the hypermax. Banks kits were over 1000 even used. Now I just need a new injector pump

If your Pump is okay, just turn it up 2 flats.

My pump is bad, won't start warm and excessive white smoke.

that could be a bad pump, but it could also be bad timing.
