Please tell me how I can justify a kit without these parts? Do I not need these parts?
I'm not sure what you're looking at but the kit from fswerks seems pretty complete to me.

I think you're confused on what you need here. The Bosch Diverter Valve is what the non ricers call a "BOV". Most turbo kits don't come with gauges, those you purchase separately. It appears by the pictures they have an adapter to use the stock exhaust manifold. The phrase "dump pipe" is typically used for the pipe that routes the external waste-gated exhaust gas. Since this is an internally waste-gated turbo, no need. Every turbo needs an oil feed, and if you look at the picture, it shows both oil/coolant lines. It as states "Water line kit" in the description. Since the turbo is water cooled as well, there is no need for a turbo timer. I don't see a boost controller so I'm guessing they intend for you to run spring pressure. However boost controllers are cheap. Is a "catch tank" suppose to mean an oil catch can? If so, also not a typical part you see in a turbo kit. For your last point, once again, gauges typically don't come in turbo kits. All they would do is jack up the price of the kit and force you to buy a certain gauge.

I also see an EGR block off plate in the picture as well.


● Garrett GT28 turbo with custom modifications
● Garrett GT28R, GT28RS and GT2871R (Optional)
● Internal wastegate actuator
● Stainless steel downpipe with o2 sensor fittings

For $3,295, I think this is a pretty damn good deal.
