I haven't dyno'd it.... but I've used my G-Tech RR to get rough estimates.
I'm guessing the Turbo added about 65hp, and about 60ft/lbs of torque.
The G-Tech (after proper calibration) is saying 230hp and 280ft/lbs of torque.

I'm guessing that the total output of the engine at the crank is just slightly less then a stock 96-99 SSEi... so about 240hp and 280ft/lbs of torque. The #* in the 1/4 mile seem to suggest this too. The car weights very close to the 97 (I think the difference is about 50lbs) and if you calculate the short time it takes for the turbo to spool, that could account for the 2-3 tenths of a second it seems to be off of a stock 96-99 SSEi in the 1/4.

As for price, I think I spent around $1600 in parts (turbo, waste gate, piping), about $1400 in fabrication (manifold, intercooler etc) and $1000 in labor. I had a special arrangement with my mechanic. If he billed me true time I'd never be able to afford the setup. His rate is about $500 a day, and he had the car from May until September. True he didn't work on it every day, but still, there was a HUGE discount and savings there. So total for me was about $4000..... CDN.
