    I realize that your post is older, but I just joined and felt like commenting on it.

    You may be talking about $4,000 for an entire kit to add the turbo to the Mustang. MOST mustangs didn't come with turbos so a lot of parts would be required to add one in. Exhaust manifolds, charge pipes, intercooler, map sensors, and then probably additional fuel pump and injector support etc.

    You can buy a Borg Warner EFR turbo for around $1,800 that will blow this stock turbo away. And that's just talking about the turbocharger itself, not a kit to retrofit an entire car to forced induction.

    I spent a lot of time tuning the LNF 2.0L Turbo and that EFR Turbo is just gorgeous.

    Yeah, technically speaking there is turbo lag. Up to about 1,800 rpm. But the engine revs so quickly that those rpms fly by.

    The last time I was in getting an oil change I asked my sales guy if I could take an ATS out for a spin. He gave me a 2.0T Performance. I didn't think the turbo lag was bad.

    the 2.0 in this car has amazing potential, back on the cobalt scene there were so many guys running the older 2.0T at 330-350HP with just an intake and tune, its laughably easy to get big numbers from these engines

    It wasn't uncommon to see cars breaking 400HP with a few more(inexpensive bolt-on) mods and corn juice now those cars are lighter than ours yes.. but not by a lot, I think my cobalt weighed in at 3250LBS.. what do these weigh? 3400lbs?

    This members pushing 605HP and he's hanging with the GTR.. he's a member on CSS.net.. since that video he's added more and he's pushing 650HP last I checked... hes got all the bolt-ons, head work Larger turbo, supporting mods etc.. no Spray, tune and e85..

    that sounds like a lot of money but those really aren't that expensive (especially for those cars). For what it would cost to get a 3.6 to 450+HP you'd need to spend thousands more on a full boost kit.. and lots of supporting mods.

    the reason I like using the cobalt SS is because it has the same (basic) engine as us and I've been around them forever and I know what they're capable of.. they put the supercharged predecessor's to shame...

    oh and just for fun.. a cobalt SS Supercharged engine, sans supercharger and turbo in its place.. 2.0 K04turbo and supporting mods, 610HP, I know everyone loves warranty, but if I can get 600HP outta this thing then **** warranty lol

    I agree with you the LNF 2.0 is a no joke motor with ability to make a lot of power. I have a Solstice GXP 5spd Trifecta Tune, K&N Filter, and Magnaflow exhaust. Just ran it at San Antonio Raceway with a 1067 DA best run was 13.632@107.35mph with a crappy 2.23 60ft. My best trap speed was 107.89mph just shy of 108mph that is pretty fast for what little mods I have about $1000.00 in parts. My Solstice is really light 3008lbs with 1/4 tank of gas but there is no reason a tuned ATS 2.0 6spd can't run the 1/4 mile in the mid 13's @ 100-104mph. Looking forward to seeing more tuned 2.0T ATS run the 1/4 mile.
