I have a Auto EX Sedan and interested in putting more boost but not too much where it contradicts the nice mpg. Basically, I am considering a small turbo if the price equates for me and of course roughly 5psi. Something to just peak the stock whp/hp a notch from 160 (stock spec) to like 200hp or more and of course, a gain in torque with a slight feel of inertia from the TQ would be fun!

I see mostly SI mods in terms of FIs.

Anyone have a R18, Sedan auto with a FI setup?

Personally not interested in NOS.
Considered SI but trade in value is horrible. Lose too much with a Navi EX.

Were you looking for FI and specifically turbo? haha
If not, that comment was very pointless and definitely does not pertain to this topic.

or just get an SI, best of all worlds good mpg, almost 200 hp, and very reliable without taking the chance of Fing everything up with a turbo
I may just drop this topic, its obviously not going to lead anywhere with the previous reply; however, you are correct. Again, I have considered an SI but this topic was more about FI on a sedan, AUTO.

Its cool, just a consideration, don't really need it. I may sell the EX or continue to keep it as a daily while playing with the s2k FI and get the new 08 GTI when its out as a more roomier daily with some more boost.

Thanks for your suggestion though :)

Enrique has an R18 LX Coupe Auto with a turbo I believe he's at like 175-180 WHP, he's the only one because he was test car. His car is still untuned and he's had it for almost a year. There is nothing out both for tuning and upgrades other then suspension, brakes, fly wheel, intake and exhaust. So even if you are able to get a turbo you're gimping it with the lack of internal upgrades that are available to you. I'm sure there will be more later on but it's gonna be a matter of waiting, the SI market is a lot larger and there's not much you can squeeze out from a 140 BHP engine at least to warrant the $4K price tag. So don't get your hopes up too high. You can squeeze more power into an engine the problem is it becomes a daily driver to a daily fixer.

A boosted R18 should have the same MPG if not better with fuel return, depends on driving style and if you rev it high enough to boost up.
