    I am about to purchase a very low mile 1997 GTP 2-door. I had a GTP a long time ago around 2009/2010 and it was a great car, but I would prefer to have one that's turbocharged this time around with more power.

    What should I be looking for in a turbo kit? Is Cartuning worth the premium, the Z3 from ZZP or the Stattama from ZZP? Or should I be looking to make my own kit, perhaps someone offers something?

    Also I see Milzy offers 1" chain gear sets now, is that a good option and what company offers a transmission for high power builds?

    I remember a thread 2 years ago talking about that specific chain and seller, saying it's not very good especially compared to the GMR and that there were a few lawsuits against them for stealing money. As for the turbo kit, I bought the z3 turbo kit from zzp during their Black Friday sales (which is around the corner again) and just took it in for the whole install. Glady will share my experience with it and dyno numbers when it's all done.

    I'm glad the previous poster shared his views on milzy. I've never heard anything good about him. avoid that guy like the plague.

    I don't know what turbo kit to go with, but you could also consider the cartuning kit. they are still in business as far as I know.

    Also forgot to say that for the chain options, I've seen trustworthy people recommend the gxp chain for builds.
