2.8L/2.9L Turbo Kits For Sale

As of now, the turbo kit on my truck is pending sale (I just need to take it off and ship it out). I would like to use this opportunity to develop a budget minded turbo kit for the 2.8 and 2.9 engines. The plan would be to offer an entry level turbo kit that would get the buyer boosting and be easy to upgrade down the road (no additional fabrication required).

I'm starting this thread to document the progress, take suggestions, and gauge interest.

Here's what I'm thinking the kit would include:

***Final Update 4/4/15***

I am building manifolds to order (no kits, sorry). Pricing and ordering instructions here:

Put me down for a kit, I'd love a turbo while (if ever) the V8 swap comes together.

I would be in if it proved to be reliable as this is the only vehicle I have and drive it daily.

My 2.8 is about to come out and is being replaced with a 2.9. I'd love to spend the extra $1000 and have a little toy to play with

It's only as reliable as the person you have tune it. You can only run 1lb of boost and kill the motor with a bad tune. Same motor with a good tune could run 20lbs and last 200,000 miles.

Re: 2.8L/2.9L Turbo Kits For Sale (maybe)

Looks like we've got a fair bit of interest!

I edited the first post. There is now an "Option 1" with an off brand turbo (good for about 8 psi and 300hp) and an "Option 2" with a Turbonetics turbo (good for 15+psi and 400+ hp). I've decided to go with an internal wastegate setup on both since it will greatly decrease the amount of fabrication I have to do. There shouldn't be any difference in power between a good internal gate and a good external gate (they do the exactly the same thing).

It will be a few weeks before I am able to start working on this project. There are a couple projects that I need to get out of my garage first. I'll continue to edit this thread with new ideas and better details as things get rolling.

I'll keep you guys updated on the progress when it starts.
