Default Came across a BOLT-ON turbo kit for the GS400...

I came across this...
http://www.mahdavimotorsports.com/mmproducts.htm

I know morris, jmecbr900 and a couple of other members here have dealt with them in the past..
Just thought I would share it since you don't come across a bolt on kit for the GS400 everyday.

Complete kits start at $8,995.00
This kit provides 500 whp at 17psi and runs on your stock ecu. Great for daily driving enjoyment.
Big props to Jamie's car on the website.

Yea i don't think the stock tranny can hold 500HP.. But at least we know there is a kit out there.. Maybe boostlogic can come up with a kit for reasonable price

dont mean to be a stick in the mud but a blazing 13.95 at 103.4 is not worth 9k to me

I think it's pretty goo dvalue. i just don't have enough money for it right now. Will eventually start an sc300 turbo project.

I think they were quoting morris's HP output for all intent and purposes of advertising. Morris is running about 500 HP to the wheels. the car pictured on the site is Jamie's car and he's running 8 psi on stock internals so I don't think he's running what morris is running.

Still I like Jamiecbr's car as it's still running stock internals. Look on SELOC where they providing info for another member with a 300. Here's the link if it's o.k with mods.http://www.seloc.net/modules.php?nam...er=asc&start=0

500hp should be good for quicker times than that, even if that's crank hp.

This interests me greatly !! Nice find Carlos. I wonder what type of numbers it would put down at low boost and stock internals? I think the supercharger added an additional 70hp and it was around 10-11K. This could be the solution I've been waiting for.
