cavalier extreme turbo kit?

has anyone had experience with this kit? I was thinking about getting a turbo and wondering if it was any good... and the guy from there said the SVT kit is only $200 more... I would like tom's kit, but it's like 2k more... cant afford that...

it said it runs 9lbs of boost which sounds high to me, but I'm not real sure what our engines can handle...

for those of you that dont know

That looks like a decent kit, although I've never heard of this company before. But from the looks of it, they know what they are doing. I mean, they added a side note that says that tuning is a must for this vehicle. At least they didn't just give you an upgraded MAF sensor and some injectors and say, "Now go and run 9lbs of boost!"

They even gave the link to the FS website to purchase the SCT chip. Looks like a good deal.

Yea, the guy thats doing those kits posted on here before and i think everyone came down on him pretty hard saying a bunch of stuff like you dont know what yer doing and so on but in my opinion the The turbo kit you buy is ONLY GOOD AS THE TUNE THATS DONE. So with a good tune id say you would be alright if the the person tuning it knows the kit and how to tune it.

No downpipe, no tuning, no MAF, no injectors........... last I heard they hadn't even put one a Focus yet. They came on trying to sell a kit that had NOT even been test fit, let alone tested.

I wonder if they even know that a turbo for the SVT has to set off to the drivers side a couple of inches so the fans will clear

After riding in Turbo Tom's turbocharged SVT at JetFest, why you would want to get a turbo from anywhere else is beyond me.
