Holy thread-necro batman. This thread is from 2004 dude.

Also, you are seriously confusing an ebay "kit" with a proper kit. The kits that Tom puts together are nothing more than a collection of components that are known to work well with the focus. (manifold, downpipe). His kits give you the option of choosing your own turbo. Then he simply provides the piping pre-fabbed to fit your car with as little modification as possible.

Custom built is great too, but not everybody has time to invest into research and design. For those of us who work full time and have other responsibilities, its usually best to find a kit that is known and proven. to work.

This is full of fail period.

Garrett isn't the best since now there turbos are made in china.
A turbo kit is for someone who doesn't know what is all needed for a turbo kit, but if you want to think about laziness than when going tubular manifold, will be done by a shop. Most people do not know how to build a manifold.

And if you want to say go for the best of the best parts, you will be spending over $4k then. That doesn't even include clutch, fuel system, and tunes.
