Turbo charged 09 pontiac vibe

Postby vibe_mike » Fri Oct 11, 2013 7:14 am

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased a complete bolt on turbo kit for my 09 1.8l vibe. I've had it for over a month, and have had no problems. Has given me great gains, and have no complaints about it. It is reasonably priced and can be installed in 1-2 days, of steady work. If anyone is interested in it here is the link...........

The entire turbokits.com staff was really nice and helped me out with all my questions.

Their is also another guy on the matrix forums (not sure if anyone is a member there) who has done it.

Cool! Turbo 09. Do you have any pictures of the install? Do you know how much power you gained? Did you have access to a lift to help with the install, or did you do it in your driveway?

Pictures of the install no, pictures of the kit in my car yes, except their to big to upload on here so I have to take some new ones. I installed it at a shop, because it needs to be tuned after, so I had access to a lift, but it is something you could do on your driveway if you have a jack and jack stands, and than will just need a tow to a shop for a dyno tune and potential welds (depending on exhaust). I am at 215hp from the stock 135 (I believe that's stock hp)

That turbo 09 blue matrix is an auto, too

That's 215whp vs the ~115whp that come stock...
