I figure by now someone must have, and you could buy almost 3 of these for the price of an FSWERKS kit so obviously there must be some huge differences.
I'm not opposed to spendnding money if I have to, and I don't mind doing a little work to save some either, If I bought this kit and the Turbo blew up 3 weeks after i installed it so i had to go and buy a different one I would still be ahead, what else in the kit is not up to par, and where could I get it tuned?
You could buy 100 of those kits and still never have the quality, tuning knowledge and customer service that you get from FSwerks.
I am not saying you couldn't "make" it work but having to constantly fix and tweak the kit will get old real fast, especially if its on your daily driver.
I ran my own custom setup for over 30k miles but there were parts (manifold, turbo, downpipe, etc) that I did not take a cheaper route on.
