ebay tubo kit good or bad?

I was looking for some turbo kits and this is one of them that came up let me know what you guys think of it for the price, is it a rip, is it something that looks like it will keep braking down on me, or is it just to good to be true? its only $1099. Let me know.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ford-...4506.m20.l1116

It says its or SVT in the title. And yes its crap. Bunch of universal bs. You'll spend more in the long run.

to list a few problems with this setup...

no injectors, no turbo manifold, uses a afpr (svt is a returnless system so this wont work...), no tuning device, the downpipe would have to be made to fit along with all of the intercooler piping since its just a universal kit... non brand name turbocharger, bov, wg, etc..etc...etc... dont waste your money.

contact xios, top speed performance, fp, and i believe there may be a few others still producing turbo kits for the svt that will be a quality setup... or take your time and build your own...

keep in mind... you get what you pay for.

I seen a talon with an ebay turbo run 11.4 today. Dudes had the turbo for 3 years and drives is every weekend. I'm not sayin its "good" but you'll prolly be better piecing one together. Its your $ spend it wisely.

problem is everything is universal, so there will be alot of custom fabrication anyways!! its no where near a bolt on turbo kit!! (if there is such a thing!)
