hey guys umm quick couple of questions. these have been bothering me for a while!!
well i have been getting my car built for the last 2 months and its now come time for turbos, my mechanic advised me to get a hks 2853 turbo kit i have tried to look it up and do my RESEARCH on it but i have not yet come to find out how much power potential that turbo kit can i push out of it. does anyone know how much that turbo kit or anyturbo kit for our cars from hks can handel??.. and if it is even worth it for that price??...
P.S does anyone know about anti turbo lag. my friend said he saw a thread on it on a cobra fourms and i saw a video of it and it seems like something i might be looking into but not shure how much damage it will put on my car and how to get my hands on one. any info will help thanks guys
The best way to avoid turbo lag, about the only that I know of is to use a small fast spooling turbo. The more you free up exhaust, intercooler piping, etc will help also. If you are crazy and can figure out the piping and space issues you could use a small turbo to spool up a big one... Not really worth it.
What are you looking for in terms of whp? I'd be looking more into AMS and Buschur kits which have reliable hp numbers and good reliability records.
On the right setup you can push 450whp on an fpgreen. Relatively cheap, easy to install, spools fast. AMS and Buschur have a proven kit for every hp goal you can think of.
Sho evo, why do I have to keep saying this every time? You keep making posts about crazy crazy things based off what someone else told you, but they are way off base. I have never even heard of an HKS 2853 turbo, and you don't see any other Evos running HKS turbos, do you? Look at what all the fast cars are using...20G-LT, 50-trim, 3076, 3071, 35R, 37R, P67R, GT42R. If the person building your car actually suggested some random HKS turbo, then I would be fearing for the life of your car...that is scary.
As for ANTI-LAG, holy cow man...who do you hang out with? Someone you know said he saw it on a Cobra forum, and you thought it might be worth looking into? Lord have mercy, you will NOT be using anti-lag. It will destroy the turbo, and I can't imagine you knowing how to use it or ever being in a situation where you'd need to use it unless you plan to start rally racing.
The HKS turbo kits are some quality stuff. The reason you don't see a lot of cars running them is because of price, but you definately get what you pay for. I know of one here in socal, had a hand in the install, and it went in great. It's actually the GT2835 kit; https://www.evotuners.net/forums/memb...tposter&t=1156
Even with just a S-AFC this thing pulled nice, good spool, and it's the best turbo I've ever felt on 91 octane. The potential is 400whp on 100 octane+.
I can't comment on the antilag.
dude turbolarry thanks man for the info...

We are not here to post insults. If you have a problem with another member's comments take it to PM's.
We are also suppost to use good grammar, punctuation, and correct spelling.
With that said...
I welcome disagreement. I'm just sharing my personal experience with the kit. I wouldn't buy it, but some would and I can understand why. Even the nuts and bolts are pretty.
Antilag, absolutely not for daily driven cars, as it will tear a turbo up. It's a feature supported in most standalone ecus and some piggyback ecus . How it works is it creats a misfire which allows the turbo to remained spooled up between shifts. For racing, its great. Otherwise, don't bother unless you have extremely deep pockets and just want to look cool.
HKS does make some nice turbo kits, but boy are they pricey. If you want relatively low spoolup and am not looking to make monster power, the turbo you are looking at will do fine. I personally would go with the 3037S, but that's by preferance. Otherwise, there are other companies that make some pretty turbo kits that make good power.
Wow this is a first...something that Warrtalon has never read/heard about! I'm gonna mark this down on the calender! :-P
Anyways, HKS was one of the first companies to come out with a full turbo kit for the Evo back in 03. The 3037 was the one most companies sold but the 28 (Basically a disco-potato) was also an option. It's about the same size as a 20G with similar spool characteristics. This turbo is VERY popular with the SR20 crowd as it's very well suited for that motor.
Like I said before Warr, just because you don't know about it doesn't make it bad or wrong. Try a little tact, not everyone wants to do what "Clayton" does. It doesn't matter if he's asked crazy questions before. At least he has the common sense to ask. With your attitude I'm sure you drive people with lesser knowledge to point of not even wanting to ask questions for fear of backlash from you.
