Umm, same concept and same or more cost in the long run. Still have to get all the same parts either way a person buys it and they both install the same.
Then again, I prefer s/c anyway. The new designs are putting turbo's to shame.

oh ok... all good!

well right now I just wanna finish the kit.. I plan on upgrading the turbo eventually later on.

but for what the kit is... its a great starting point for going turbo on a budget.

im going with ford racing 42lb injectors, currently deciding on fuel pump and ford racing maf. just shopping prices.

on a side note the 1st gen kit did have some fitment issues but the 2nd gen front facing kit has gotten awesome reviews. and has a much easier install and quality setup.

I can think of 3 people that run these kits - two in a fox and one in a SN95. None of which have issues but then again all three aren't new to modding a car.

OP - for the turbo and piping alone the price is decent. Make sure you do your homework with pump volume, line diameter, injector flow rate and MAF management.

otherwise enjoy th 300 somethimg hp w/o fuel upgrades... and you still have to fork over for tune time yet.
this cheap kit isn't sounding so cheap anymore...k member, fuel pump, injectors, tuning unit, custom dyno tune, upgrade to good turbo
