I'm searching for a FD2R & once I go it the 1st place that thing is going to is the garage!!!
Wanna + turbo on it. Why mod it? I'm getting married... Just gotto do this before marriage. Own a speedy turbo car. 1-2 years my ears are gonna get longer... Hari-hari kena pull:bawling: Wakakak...

What I have in mind would be a turbo kit. Not those that are for track use but those that gives performance. The word "PERFORMANCE" in my term would be something for street use & a bit more only. Hard to put it in words... I've never own a turbo car, just to get to the point. Starters level...

What would be looking at? I've doing some research at the net & those kits pricing comes in a very wide range. What's there to recommend? Mostly I'll ship the kit in & get pros installer & remaping...
Pls include a link of the kit & I'll usderstands it better

One more part that concerns me would be the braking system. Ori from FD2R would be sufficient?
Hope there are hands on experienced owner sharing this with me.

Bro, no offense.. but, why not going straight to turbo car (i.e Evo or Impreza), instead of FD2R + BOT hassle ???

I understand that you want something different route, but, bought and straight away send it to BOT without even taste, understand and know the dynamics of the FD2R really puzzles me...

If you can afford for an used FD2R, you are definitely can afford for EVO 8MR and some equivalent model from subaru stables....

Sorry for my out-of-topic sense... hehehe I just couldn't imagine someone who willing "menodai kesucian" i-vtec K20AR...

Okay back to your questions... I personally (of course) don't have any experience done it. But my advise is, please consult with someone (I mean your tuner/engine builder) who really knows what they are doing. You need to provide them with the input of your target (how much target hp, torque level, how responsive the engine you expected, budget and so on). Then, it would be easier for him to advise you on the spec selection of BOT parts.

Since, you wanna do it before you get married and "cuci tangan" after that, then make sure you build it once and you build it right...

Gud luck bro.

bro, does not make any different, if K20AR + BOT + mistuned/mismatched parts = kaboom...
Lagi mati pucuk! :bawling:

G force climax (as for me) = standard virgin EVO 8/9 MR, then biar stock je. Just maintain normal service routine and replace wear-tear parts.

Well, I am saying this because like you said "getting married and its game-over".. means no more modifications (at least for 2 years la kot)...
So, the key point here is to find something "awesome" and enjoy it, right?

Well, I put it based on cost-effective basis perspective. The amount you need to spend for FD2R + BOT (efficiently and reliably setup) would cost more than EVO 8/9. Additionally, you got a good platform for further modifications (after tak kena tarik telinga la).
