Dinan made them one which was good for a reported 350 hp depending on boost. I have heard that it suffered from a lot of turbo lag due to the size of the turbo and the technology at the time.

Problem is that we have shitty engine management and high compression engines. Both make a turbo setup a challenge!

Most end up going to an Evo III spec type setup and bore the motor to 2.5 Liter - Done right these things are bullet proof and produce awesome power - Cost is Huge to develop

Good luck and remember that when the S14 goes BOOM from too much boost or going lean, it cost a ton to fix!!!

If you find a tuner who develops a good kit post it, I for one would be interested!!!!


iv been trying to find one but no luck yet you might have to have one custom made
