    So I was browsing ebay, looking for DSM parts, and stumbled upon this
    let me know what u think
    http://cgi.ebay.ca/Turbo-Kit-for-4G63-E ... dZViewItem
    It seems to have most of what i'm looking for, especially the 3 wastegate springs with different rates.

    I'm seriously thinking about buying this kit, just wanted to check with you guys and see if any of you have had experience with this particular kit or something similiar?

    i think this is your biggest problem,

    (1) BRAND NEW STAGE III WHEEL / SHAFT T3/T4 .50 .63 TURBO

    that turbo is pretty big for our 1.9's, from experience i would suggest something in the .40/.40 range. Boost lag can be a bitch but when it's as bad as mine you have to 'trick' the turbo into spooling by down shifting - spooling - then up shifting. From a stop, if i want to dragrace, i have sit at 5000-6000 rpm to get the turbine going so my boost will start climbing at 2000rpm instead of the usual 3000 rpm - not to mention im barely in the efficiency range. A good rule to remember, for pretty much anything thats street modified, you should be at full boost by 1/2 of your rpm range.
    with my .63 t-3 turbo i _start_ to make boost at the 1/2 range.

    you don't have to take my word for it though, look at a compressor map and calculate how much air your engine flows - you will see that its not going to be good.

    another side of it is this is all stuff you can't see. that IC may not fit, the hoses may be to short, the manifold doesn't look right. I would have a hard time chewing that all at once.

    and - If it's your first turbo rig id suggest junkyard parts honestly. It gives you some experience looking at other turbo cars and you get to see what your gettting before you get it (ntm the price is lower).

    In the yard it's good to compare the displacement of the car vs it's red line to get an idea of if the turbo is to big or to small for you. A [email protected],500rpm should be close unlike a 3.0 that redlines at 6,000 would be to big - but if that same 3.0L had a red line of 4000rpm - it might work.

    i don't know exactly what your plans are but I hope this helps @ good luck

    Use caution when buying cream cheese wonton turbo kits.

    That and the external waste gate location wont work for the Escort convertion.

    that shyt sure does look nice though, and the boost level springs are right on. but hitting full boost at 7k RPM wouldnt be too cool. 8O

    anyway, i dont think its worth 500$ because you still would need to buy some sort of fuel managment, and all the piping. not to mention the header just wont 'bolt up', you need to get it customized.

    anyway, JGBtools (?) sells a header, custom made, to make alot of turbos basicly 'bolt on' with some minor fab work. best bet is finding a cheap used turbo w/ minimal shaft play, and used IC's are a dime a dozen. BOV's are nearly free at the J/Y (if you get lucky 2 find one..)

    so now, for that same 500$ you could have a used setup, but it would be 'taylored' to fit your car. either way, its your car, but i would go cheap- (thats how i ended up driving an escort in the 1st place, so it cant be bad)

    i by no means am an authority but they both serve there purpose. stock or boosted they have their place in the world. i have driven and owned stock and modified both. they both have their pro's adn con's.

    the gen1 is simple to turbo thanks to the turbo coupe and xr4ti. these can be found all over the place.

    then gen2 is simpler to turbo cause a motor swap is straight forward. no repinning or wiring issues.
