Exclamation I Need Your Opinion Now Before I Make A Mistake!

this is my perdicament right now. im going to buy some tycs retrofitted valedo d2s. i sold my previous hid kit. but now im having second thoughts. should i buy the hid kit and sell my tv total is approx 1400, and boost. or should i build my outside and inside then boost. i had some parts for a custom turbo setup so im builidng from scratch again. the reason for the turbo being so cheap is my friend is making, tuning, doing all the work. so im basically paying for parts. labor is free since im car is going to be a flagship for his new motorsports store. give me your input please. show inside and out, or boost.

Is the car a daily driver? How much PSI are you going to be boosting it? I would boost it if you weren't going to be running very many PSI as a daily driver, if it is a daily driver I would also build up the motor or swap that bad oscar, then boost!

do not get a turbo for your d17. if i were you i would look at this in the long run...get a K20 swap first, then down the road get a turbo or supercharger or whatever. your car will be a monster. if you go ahead and get the turbo for your stock engine, there really arent many options after that, unless you build up the internals and run at a higher psi, but that will still only get you so much power. thats what i would do (and am doing), but then again, i dont know how much power youd be satisfied with...

14s is good enough for me, im changing cars in about 1 1/2 - 2 years. no point putting in money for a k20 swap. rather just spent 1200-1500 and boost. custom setup. professionally tuned etc etc. most likely i'll be boosted by the summer, ready for the socal norcal meet.
