1. TRUCK TURBOS
One of the most common tuning tricks is the use of turbos off commercial vehicles such as HGVs.

Trick parts like billet wheels and compound-charged setups have been fitted to diesel trucks for years, and if you can find the right one, you can have your dream turbo for a bargain price.
