I Want To Try The Aerocharger! What Y'All Think?

I have been really intrigued since they launched the 930 Kit with the self-lubricating turbo and the new 934 header design all with much improved drive ability and significant lag elimination. Granted the price is pretty steep, but I would sell my current ultra low mileage set-up to help offset the cost.

What do you guys think? I am pretty sure no one on here has installed this set-up?

Your thoughts?

I like it, I would need more empirical data to illustrate its performance on a high hp efi build.

I would like to try one too, but just the turbo charger minus all the other crap that racks up the bill to 6+K. Screw that, give me a bolt-on turbo to what I already have and we'll see how it performs.

Just in case anyone has not seen this thread: Does anyone know about the aerocharger?

Mark the turbo is available by itself without the header and "kit" for around $2,500

I hear you bro and feel for you..you have had an emotional and financial roller coaster with your car, but rest assured when you get it back from Chris, hopefully the painful past can be put to rest. I'll give you a call this weekend.

True, but isn't it still the center mount design which would require their specially designed header and muffler/piping? Not a direct swap with a KKK if I understand correctly.

Sounds nice....
But I would upgrade to one of those new Borg Warner-Turbos for $800.00-- Dump more fuel with my HKS-AIC--(Old School) CIS-1bar-Max
Wait for a cold morning like 51degrees like N.Y. Metro today
Go to my favorite top-end-spot to do some nice runs..Top end-60mph--to 140mph-as fast asap. is what I like (915-tranny)
Then see if it puts a smile on face.
Don't want to mess with something with little reward...

I have a kit over in Aus and will be fitting it sometime soon. I must say, the quality of the fabrication is first rate. The attention to detail and the way the kit was packed and shipped is top drawer. Will let you know how it works out.

Borg-Warner makes a great turbo, but unfortunately they are still a flooded bearing design which adds to turbo-lag. While variable-vanes play a major roll in turbo responsiveness, a low-drag bearing design is equally important. With a self-contained unit there is no worry of damage from hot shut-downs either.
