AFI Stage 1 GT Kit - GT28RS Turbo
The AFI Stage 1 GT Kit is great for street use. The GT28RS turbo is the perfect choice if
you want to create a decent amount of power for the street. 300 horsepower at the wheels is easily achieved with a
B18C5 engine even with air conditioning, power steering, catalytic convertor, and a 2 1/4" USDM exhaust.
I chose this kit because I wanted good gas mileage, and wanted a reliable setup. I
also did not want an insane amount of horsepower.
Here are the parts that went into the turbo build:

Note that these parts weren't just slapped on to a stock motor. Before the
turbo was installed, I had he engine rebuilt and prepped with quality parts. In other words, almost every
moving part and seal was replaced. I did not want any leaks and any problems down the line.
Now having an AFI Stage 1 GT Kit does not come without a price. And that price is
1. You'll need to routinely check nuts and bolts to make sure that they have not backed
themselves out. This is especially important during the first week of installation.
2. Every 2000 you should change the oil and spark plugs. The oil filter can be
changed every other oil change. The spark plugs is a good precaution, becuase spark plugs are
3. Top off the coolant overflow tank. The cooling system has to deal with more
heat and it tends to burn off faster than a natural aspirated motor.
4. Never let the gas tank go lower than 1/4 full. The fuel pump is cooled by the fuel that
is in the tank. If you want the fuel pump to last long, you'll want to keep the fuel tank at least 1/4
