<font color='#000F22'>3sgte swap.
turboing a 5sfe isnt as easy as people make it look, its not just bolt on the exhast manifold and turbo and go, the head gasket cant hold boost, the compression ratio is to high, the injectors are to small, the ecu doesnt retard for boost. the amp sensor goes crazy at 5psi. bottom end isnt that strong. there is a lot of things that has to be changed to make it run smoothly and reliably. so I would do the swap and work that engine, that engine is strong enouph to push 400whp without taking it apart. i know someone pushing 550whp out of one with stock internals. the 5sfe wouldnt be able to do that. inless it was torn apart and everything was replaced.
about the body kit get me a link if i like what i see Ill look into being a us dealer for them, im still looking to get a distributor for body kits.</font>
