well ive decided to do a bolt on turbo conversion to my 93 supra na but i need some help. im deciding to go with the Nonturbo.com kit, whch i believe is the DaveH kit, if im not mistaken. (my ideal range for horsepower is 380-450, if you know any kits out there better to get to my goal, PLEASE let me know). Anyways, ive been reading the posts of other owners for about 2-3 months now and i have searched ALOT, but i just wanted to make sure of all the things i need...please let me know if im missing anything (even if it's something really small but part of the conversion).

-The turbo
-exhaust
-intake
-oil lines
-upgraded fuel pump
-upgraded fuel injectors
-intercooler kit
-apexi s-afc or greddy e-manage
-blow off valve
-headgaskets
-wastegate
-wastegate downpipe
-midpipe
-downpipe
-cast-steel manifold
-high performance clutch
-boost controller
-turbo timer
-and all bolts from the kit

again, if i am missing something, or dont need anything thta is listed up there, PLEASE let me know. i really really appreciate it...

you'll need some IC piping... ARP head studs if you are indeed changing your headgasket... and also, the afc+upgraded injector combo would probably work better if you had a vpc, or at least a lexus afm... turbo timer, you can do without it for a little while, it won't do too much damage... highly recommend a boost gauge though

Well... try reading like every other person to.... follow along over time and you'll catch on.... everyone had to start somewhere, after about 5 months I've got it down pretty good.

The VPC deletes the factory airflow meter and converts you to a speed density metering system, it has pre-programmed fuel maps depending on what chip you have in there. It took you a year to find someone to explain that to you?

If it helps you at all in your buildup check out the link at the bottom of my sig.

A little more detail on the VPC for those who care.... the VPC estimate's the air going into your engine based on the intake air's temperature, and the pressure or vacuum in your intake manifold.

does anyone have specs side by side comparisons between the nonturbo.com upgraded turbo kit and the powerhouse racing stage 2 kit.....which is better....sorry i dont mean to take over your thread, but both these kits are coming into my mind as possibilities also
