Hello everyone

I'm considering a turbo conversion on 4kq. I would like to know what are the
pro's and con's of each setup, KH, MC (1 or 2), 3B. I'm tending more to the
3B, but information is the most important thing so before I start I would
like some opinions.

Vehicle current status
New 90q leather interior and currently swiching dented panels and doors for
preliminary single color paint job, getting h1/h4 lights from germany used
(2nd set), getting windows tinted to 20% all around, and installing a 91
coupe glass sunroof. 4 corner 2bennet coil over, eibach and koni

I have read and browsed extensively, Javad, Jim Green, Nate's and other
websites that have done conversions and I read 70-80% of everything, I just
need to finish up the reading.

One of my questions in particular to Javad, Nate and Jim is how much money
round figure did you guys spend until this point, Money to me is a certain
liability, I just got married and there are other things to consider. I'm
more worried on long term, rather than short term.

2. which engine is the best setup - out of the box -
3. most easily tuned
4. peak hp tuning possibility in each one.
5. clutch and flywheel options
6. if there is anything else that you think might be valuable to me

in the first stage I did not want to spend more than $5,000 in materials and
tools, not counting my time of course.

I know it might be unfair, but I would like to learn from everyone's
experience, so that it could be easier for me, I'm willing to recompense to
a certain extent everyone that helps. I have a big house with a decent back
yard so get togethers are not a problem.

I thank everyone in advance I'm not expecting answers at lighting speed, I
thank everyone that will take time and share wisdom with me.
