option 1 is the first mod you should do to an Eta is the chip...as it nets about 22hp and 26tq, and raises the redline to 5300...well worth it too...huge improvement...

other than that the Eta makes a good motor for mild boost...666 fabrications makes turbo manifolds for the M20, might want to look into that

and the 2nd thing you should do is listen to kraut, as he will guide you in the ways of the e30.

the Eta motor is the motor which you have... the site that kraut was talking about is 666 Fabrication - Quality that lasts an eternity for turbo goodies. if you do end up going turbo my word of advice is DO NOT invest in a chip yet... with the turbo you would need to recalibrate your ECU anyways and you would waste your money buying a chip only to get it tossed with the turbo setup.

looks like its all there minus the tuning stuff...you still have to figure out the fueling/tuning, but otherwise looks like its all there, but i can not vouch for the quality of this product...as i have no experiance with it...

looks pretty cheap, ehh and it uses an internal wastegate, bleh, i preffer external...im not even sure who makes that turbo...thats kinda scary lol

I've had good experience and greqat customer service with Miami based, internet high-performance company KO Performance (ask for John Paul, President) and visit the site - KO Performance - High End Import Performance and OEM Parts, car parts

They can help you pick the best package for your budget and needs, plus, you can run it by the boys here for confidence and recommendation. I bought my Supercharger from them and they were very reliable and reputable. They also got recommendations for a great shop near me to get me set up. John Paul and his people will take the time with you to make you happy. That's my 2 cents and direct experience. Good guys, and they know a lot about forced induction - in and out (S/C & Turbo).

Good luck!
