Gude Turbo Kit?

Anyone know anything about this company?

http://gude.com/turbo/focus.html

A guy local has a brand new kit for 2500 from them. Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks Travis

If I remember, late 90s early 00s, Gude was BIG into Honda tuning... If Im remembering the correct company. If so, they always had stuff on winning cars, and the kit looks pretty sound.

I know from scouring the internet, Zetec Turbo kits are getting harder to find. That or I just dont know where to look, lol!

ya it seems real nice.. heres the ad for the car with the kit on it. The kit has been installed on the car but never taken on the streets with it. http://baltimore.craigslist.org/car/698982096.html

Seems like a good deal to me.

DONT BUY GUDE!!!!

I have GUDE's kit and it is the biggest piece of junk I have ever purchased. I basically have rebuilt that whole kit to make it work. I have spent 4X the money if I had gotten the right kit in the first place.


I cannot stress enough how big of a mistake and joke it is to buy from GUDE.

I remember someone from this forum, back when I joined up, had a Gude kit or knew someone with one that wasn't too pleased with it.

Yes there ya go, thats the best you can get. Most power on a stock motor that you can buy as a kit!

Great quality and would rate a 9 out of 10, just because nothing is perfect.
