Well, considering $1600 is what the dealership wanted me to pay for them to pull my turbos to see if COP would cover them under warranty. That was just for labor and no guarantee they would be covered. Honestly, I feel sorry for anyone that take their car to the dealerships and thinks the dealers word is gospel. So many people get ripped off it's not funny.

It is ridicolous, just like the $700.00 spark plug change I can do in 30 mins LOL!!

Notice that we've removed the subframe, making it much easier to access hard-to-reach fasteners. It might be faster to sneak the turbos in with the sub hanging off the front suspension, but it's worth it to remove it: way fewer headaches. Honestly, this is not a job that I would recommend for the novice or intermediate hobbyist. There are too many tricky bits and places to mess up.

I would also like to compliment RB on the quality of the turbos. They are top notch stuff.
Great photo, Yeah the sub frame is giving me second thoughts of doing this on rhino ramps....may try this on jack-stands. Taking the entire subframe out is a PITA to LOL!!

And if you're gonna spend over over $3k on a turbo upgrade (RBs), you probably should have all these other mods (and maybe an LSD) done in advance.
I have all other mods needed for tune, just concern on whether the tranny and gearbox can withstand the gains without beef it up. Because anything goes wrong with either it wont be a 1-2 days repair.

It makes it easier if you're going from under the subframe.
