Holset turbo, Check this out

http://nh.craigslist.org/pts/1342705964.html
Check this out. I looked into Holset very briefly and it seems like they are pretty good. (They are professional looking)
Also is all that chrome being used as engine gear kind of stupid? (i never have heard of chrome header for zetec.)
Im thinking of messaging this bro about it. What kind of stuff should I ask him about guys?
P.S the term "bro" was not used seriously...
Cheers

holset is the bomb.

if you could get it to fit and you have a built engine where you can rev to like 8500 then do it haha

i have a holset hx25 that im trying to sell.
its been rebuilt by the previous owner.

it isnt the biggest turbo but its a decent size and will easily hold 400 hp

OK nice! Yeah I knew it was not a turbo kit or anything but I just wanted to know if it was worth it. Is chrome a pretty much just for the bling factor or does it work as a functional metal for header/flex/cat etc

I figured as much about the chrome stuff.
Depending on the model of turbo I might try to work out a deal without the header stuff.
The next thing is getting all of the other peripheral stuff that turns that turbo into a full setup.
