Turbo on How Its Made. hahaha

So i was just watching how its made and to my surprise they showed how to make a turbonetics turbo. Its pretty bad ass but at the end they were like the whole process only takes about 15 min. I was thinkin.. "Whaaaaaat? How the F#$% are they able to sell them for $700+? That is complete BS. Its cause they know people will still pay that much. all about the demand.

Demand. And the overhead cost of production influence the price. All those automated machines cost $$ and they need to make a profit aswell.

Re: Turbo on How Its Made. hahaha

I would just get a ebay turbo with turbonetics internal parts and build my own if its really that easy to repair... Do you have a link that shows how they build it?
