cool post. No price listed though. I wonder if this is worth the extra power? Or go through the trouble of putting a V8 in?

That should be cool. Looking forward to more on that. Hopefully their price isn't out of reach for the average guy.

Waste of money if over 2K max... I wonder what other things would need replacing/swapping out to handle the extra power? I don't think it's as easy as simply bolting this thing on and calling it a day - at least not for long.

Love to see someone do it though.

Probably much higher.
I'd bet 4500. Banks stuff is never competitively priced.

I'd do a v8 before I'd mess with a turbo. It's not a car...

looks pretty cool, but i think id rather just stroke mine or do a v8 swap. that 3 grand (or however much it will be) could be new axles.

There has never been a proper reliable well sorted turbo kit marketed for $2k or less. Even the suckers-and-their-money-are-soon-parted junk sells for more than that.

I think I would def be interested if it were under $2k but I doubt it. But hey you never know if they want to sell some to cover their R&D costs it would be in Banks best interest imo. Rather have a new 4.6l stroker.
