The kits need some final welding and each one test fit on a vehicle. Availability is set for 01 February! We were able to get the price down to our target of $2500 and current tune customers will have an additional $300 discount for chosing the upgrade.

For any owner with a failed stock turbo, this kit is price competitive to that of stock replacement. Add in the massive performance increase and fuel economy bump, it becomes even more adventageous!

You guys are killing me

Seriously, great job. Now that my new torque converter solved the shuddering issue with your Hot Tune . . .

Got a couple questions.

Is there anything that is done with the installation of this kit that would prevent going back to the original turbo config?

Would you describe a little more about the welding that is required?

Thanks.

The turbo kit can always be reverted back to the stock configuration and GDE will reflash the ECU with the proper tune if a need should ever arise. There are three changes that would require retrofit:

1. Weld the original exhaust downpipe back to the exhaust system.
2. Cut and solder the two wires that connect to the turbo EVM connector.
3. Weld the turbo heat shield back together.

The welding is very straight forward. The new exhaust downpipe has a slip joint that will slide over the exhaust pipe under the vehicle. This needs to be welded at the joint all the way around 360 degrees. One can use a MIG, TIG or stick welder to accomplish the job, it just depends on how pretty you want the weld to look. We just welded a couple inches at a time and then rotated the pipe to the next section. In total there is about 8 inches of weld and the metal thickness is about a 1/16 inch so it will be hard to burn through.
