    I've heard a lot about the benefits of turbos, and also a lot about problems with turbos. Exactly what is the purpose of a turbo and how much would a good one cost???

    Used turbos from BANKS can run you 300+ brand new they are 1800. They include EVERYTHING needed and are BOLT ON.


    TURBOS offer MORE POWER by sucking in MORE AIR!

    The purpose of a turbo is forced induction, similar to a supercharger in some ways, but driven by exhaust gasses instead of by belt or gear. More bang for the buck compared to naturally aspirated.
