Default swap or turbo gains?

how much gain in hp would I be looking at with this kit on a d15b7 running the maximum safe amount of psi and full 2.5" exhaust?

Or would I be better off just swapping in a B20 or something like that? Would I be able to install a kit like this myself? What is difficulty of such an install?

a kit like that on a D15 at about 6 lbs of boost will probably get you in the area of 180hp. As for doing the install yourself... if you are asking then im going to say no. get it done by someone who knows what they are doing.

ya I dont figure I can get a turbo kit in just yet with the experience I have on this type of stuff. Im pretty sure however I could drop in a direct swap such a b16 or something, but I like those numbers on that turbo kit. My d15b7 has 192,000 KM on it though
(thats 119,000 miles approx.) to much to bother putting that turbo on?
