Turbo Kit Test – Background
For the article it could well be a case that the turbo kit power output figures were taken on separate rolling roads, with the figures being provided by the turbo kit manufacturers.

The turbo kits below have been grouped together by car to allow an easier comparison of the turbo kits but in some cases comparison is not possible as only one kit is featured for a car. The cars featured in the test include the Acura RSX, Honda Civic Si, Honda S2000, Nissan 350Z, Toyota Celica GTS and the Lexus IS300.

Anyway that’s the background and here are the figures.
