No, with respects of ur answers i say that getting car turbo charged is not bad and even it is affordable in city drivings....But one needs to take certain precautions as now that car is not what is approved by the company officials as turbo is not recommended in india by most of the companies....So if people still want then they should take good care of their cars and try to drive smoothly in city....

Turbo charging is a carefull and precesion process......lots of people dont understand that...
Therefore be sure to get it done from a professional who does it regularly and understands your car well..

Exclamation Dead Eclipse

Mitsubishi seems to be having a lot of reliability problems with their products in the US. The Eclipse GT version especially. My friend who owns a GS version does not recommend a US-built Mitsubishi and even sent me this link to express his discomfort, Mitsubishi Eclipse Problems

Eh, .5-.7 psi is a light breeze on your airfilter!

OT: Cars in BLR running 7-9 psi on stock internals for over 2000 km, no problem with engines. Gearboxes suffer most of the time.
