      Could you give me a list of what you used? I would really like to get this for my '06 Aveo.

      Regardless of the car you put it on, every basic kit has the same components. I really don't mean to be rude but if you don't know what parts you need to build a basic kit yourself then you shouldnt look at turbocharging your car. It gets way more complicated down the road.

      Getting the parts is the easy part, making them work the way they are suposed to and safely is another story.

      Anyone can slap a turbo on a car, but then you need fuel management, and with these cars, thats a big problem as the ignition system is unlike 95% of the other cars on the road. You might be able to get away with "cheap" way to increase fuel but in a very very low boost setup (2-3 psi at most) and even then i wouldnt recommend it.

      First of all, how deep is your wallet for this? You will be surprised at how quickly and expensive turbocharging gets. Depending how much work you do yourself, it can easily cost upwards of 3000 dollars, professionally assembled setups can run over 5 grand and more.

      You know, since the summer I've thought about doing lots of things to my car and one of them was a turbo, but what's the point? When you really break it down, it's an economy level car. Also, when you get into performance mods on your daily driver you can count on not driving for weeks at a time. Another thing is, a lot of parts on the Aveo are made cheap, so adding a turbo and all this other stuff means you'll be going deeper into more parts, and trying to find stronger non OEM replacements.

      Another thing, if you have the money for the Aveo and want something you can tune and make fast and what not, join the dark side, sell the Aveo and grab a Civic. Hate to say it, but any part you need for a Civic you can get pretty easy and pretty cheap and the older Civics have huge lists of aftermarket parts that you can buy, thanks to The Fast & The Furious movie which really brought out the Civics true potential.

      Keep the Aveo, get an older Civic like a 2001 isn't bad. Put some money into it, turbo, cold air, fuel management, blow off, performance struts and shocks, body kit, paint it e.t.c get the whole thing going. Then you'll still have a car to drive daily while your toy is being tuned.
      Laugh now, fly later... Damn it feels good to be a Taylor!

      you can get a civic and be like everyone else.. or realize the aveo engine is the same as vauxhall, etc. and can easily handle a turbo, even factory turbo versions were available.

      +1 Also, i'm not sure about the 1.6, but the 2.0 handles boost extremely well and the power gain is phenominal 250whp on 12 psi is doable, try that on your honda you will need way more boost then that... oh and the ignition remains stock on the 2.0 as well as the entire engine in fact.

      I'm not interested in modding a car you can buy 1/2 the parts at wal-mart, wheres the challenge in making it something unique? When ppl hear that blow off going off and expect to actually see a civic or a comon car then realize it's an Aveo, their reaction is priceless lol
