If you buy the kit you could just be wasting your money.. go the extra mile and you'll get more power and better reliability.

On eBay you have a tendancy to get what you pay for.

Ebay Kits arnt that bad... I used to have one before I made a custom one my self... Just DONT use a Chrome Manifold from Ebay or what the Kit gives you cause YES it will Crack... Buy a Cast Iron Manifold.... who cares if its ugly and/or Rusty... trust me it will pay off in the end...

if its the $800 kit that either SSautocrap or XSpower sells..... the turbos fall apart, the manifolds crack..... etc etc


you hafta be EXTREMELY careful with the turbo parts you buy on ebay.
now even the chinese knock-off turbos are starting to cast "turbonetics" or "greddy" onto the housings, but they're still chinese sh*t
