    3-4K seems high with it being bolt on replacement. You can buy
    a complete turbo kit with fuel mods for around that price.

    Like I said, depends on what options you choose, and price factor comes into play if you don’t already have their front pipe, intake, and intercooler. It will be reasonably priced, just like their other kits and products.

    I can't wait to see their pricing VS Greddy and what each kit offers.

    I was thinking more along the lines of 2-2.5K

    Even at full pricing:

    Inter cooler and piping $800
    Intake $400
    Turbo and D/P $1200

    total - $2400

    Where do you get the "Turbo and D/P" pricing? Most Garrett turbos are
    $800-2,000 just by themselves. I hope this one will be ball bearing instead of journal, but a drop-down option for either could sell well.

    I was buying $2k turbo kits from Greddy in 2001 and that was just the kit, no intercooler or fueling or anything. I think expecting this upgrade kit to be $2k is wishful, but maybe they prove me wrong.

    I’m sure they will offer both, but yes, be smart and get the ball bearing. Costs more but much more reliable. Plus the quality they provide is astounding, worth every penny.

    Cool stuff... though I'm more of a 300hp out of a stock housing modified turbo customer for bang-for-the-buck and longevity with stock internals.

    550 whp is >350 hp/liter... sort of like a 1000 hp 2jz. They're going to be well exceeding 400 ft/lbs of torque at the top of the RPM range. It's cool and all... and I'll be looking on in interest, but I'll definitely be sitting this upgrade path out.

    Props to PRL. Getting that much power out of what was originally a ~100 hp N/A Fit engine is *amazing*. :bow:

    You guys should stop speculating on prices lol. Just wait for PRL to announce their info instead of assuming.

    Haha it's pointless. In the end, they told me I'd be suprise to how affordable their kit will be.

    affordable is relative haha, some people think a $10 burger is affordable and some people think a big mac is expensive. Anyhow, for some more speculation I hope its in the $2k range but we shall see

    Yep. We'll see what it takes to upgrade the rods/pistons/fuel pump. Clutch is a foregone conclusion... and if the turbo is dimensionally different, downpipe. Not counting labor if you're not going to DIY, I bet that's where the real money lies on the quest to make well over 300 hp and will easily exceed the cost of turbo. Most of Garrett's offerings over on Z1 were ~1-1.5k based around a T25. The sky can be the limit though. I don't know what's involved going from a MHI turbo with all the electronic wastegate stuff that the ECU controls to a Garrett..

    I mean, if Im going to pay a good amount of money for an upgrade kit, Im paying for PRLs. The development of their 10th gen products have literally taken place right here in front of us on this forum. and from the parts we have so far, I dont doubt that PRLs is going to be the best kit on the market and worth every penny.

    I bet you'll be right. It'll certainly set the benchmark for this type of kit. I'm still hopeful for a path with the stock unit and would love if PRL goes down that road as well. They have built up a good reputation. Snow White was one of the first 10th gens I read about mods wise.

    Great point regarding the switchover from the electronic waste gate. Given that part of KTuner's current options rely on manipulation of the electronic waste gate, I'm curious how tuning for this turbo will function.
