Twin Turbo Into Gs300 Mk1

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this has been asked before so please forgive the repetition.

I've been hankering after a GS300 for years and I finally bought one a year or so ago. It had to be black and naturally, a Sport. Like all my previous cars, I like to put my own little touches on them. Well all that's done now and I'm now thinking about upping the performance. I've done a fair bit of research and as far as I can tell there's very little that can be done other than a remap. At best, that'll give me an extra 40bhp - not bad but I'm looking for more than that.

I'm therefore thinking of the twin turbo route. Now and again you see twin turbo Aristo Mk1's going for around the £2k mark which makes me think that buying one and swapping it all over MAY be the way to go? However, it's beyond my own capabilty to do it myself. Do any of you guys know of anyone who's had it done? Was it a drama or relatively straightforward? And I guess the $64k question - how much was it to get it done?

I suspect that you may advise me to sell my GS300 Sport and just go out and buy an Aristo instead. Yep, I could do that but I've spent a fortune on my car and to be honest it's now almost perfect. All new suspension - including uprated springs and dampers, fuel lines, custom made stainless exhaust, new discs, calipers, pads etc. etc. etc. I even had all the walnut fittings repolished. So it obviously wouldn't make financial sense to possibly go through all that again!

Thanks and appreciated in advance for any help and/or advice.
