FA20Club Turbo Kit Owners Topic

Welcome to the @FA20Club.com Turbo Owners Thread.

I created this thread back in July 2013 when these Turbo Kits were first taking off. Hopefully this thread will continue to a helpful resource in light of recent events.

FA20Club is no longer a sponsored vendor on these forums and doesn't have the ability to post or receive messages

As a result, I have removed many of the links that once existed in this thread. There wasn't any formal notification of this event but you can look in the links provided at the bottom that take you to the Vendor Review section for reference. This thread will continue to exist as the member to member interaction has been the primary purpose all along.

Like any purchase, I would urge those that are considering a turbo kit (through this vendor or another vendor) to do your own homework. Talk to and visit multiple shops producing kits as well as those installing to ensure both are in alignment to FULLY support your purchase! Talk to the customers out there and do your due diligence! There are a lot of choices out there now that didn't exist 9 months ago. While there have been some positive experiences with these kits and vendor, there have also been some very, very bad experiences. Bottom line... Make a well educated decision.

Some of the members listed below have either moved on or have modified their build and selected vendors to minimize their exposure, me included. The list of members below and the provided links may not accurately represent the current state of their build. If you would like me to add/delete/ change member listings then please PM me and I will edit as time permits.

If you are looking for updates on your order, have questions about shipping lead times, or need to have ANY level of assistance from the vendor then please use a direct form of contact (Phone, Email, Etc). This thread is NOT monitored by them and is intended to be a member/owner driven resource, not a vendor sponsored support mechanism.

Owners List

Please PM me if you want to get added or removed from the owners list. Things change very quickly to peoples builds so PM will be the only method for list modification. Please include Turbo type, EL vs UEL header type, any other unique aspects of your kit (built engine, unique boost control, etc) and any links to build threads and dynoís.
I have changed how the owners list is ordered and I am now grouping them by Dyno proven horsepower, highest at the top. I know that every dyno is different and will try and denote what Dyno was used if that is provided by the owner, but this is the easiest way for me list them. Note that those that are 400hp and up are using some form of boost control while those in the high 200ís are likely wastegate spring pressure only.
  1. @alexisfire02, GTX30r, Installed, , Dyno 508whp/351tq/E85

These forums are a very valuable resource and have many sections that are dedicated to specific topic classifications (Classified sections for buying/selling, Members Car Journal sections for detailing your own build, DIY Guide section, etc...) Do Your Own Homework Before Purchasing! Look through the build links above, look through the Vendor Review sections here prior to hitting the purchase button.

This thread is about AND for FA20Club Turbo Kit Owners! Please don't turn this thread into a free for all by posting content that belongs somewhere else!

Good idea. Sure would be nice if there was a Full Blown one of these threads. Perhaps if I get bored at work tomorrow.

The real debate is do you spell Tony with a y or an i if your name is Antonio.

I thought it was Toni, but when i saw this post i saw people spelling it with a "y". Every time i have sent him an email i use "Toni" and he has never corrected me. Maybe i will confirm with him later when he emails me back about something.
