Ebay Turbo???
I found a seller on ebay offering a turbo system for the focus.
He is attempting to screw ebay out of their fees by selling it for $650.00 and then telling you you must pay a reserve (not an ebay reserve, but his personal reserve price).
If this is his scam ebay will hold him legally resposible for sending you the parts for the list price?
Ok enough long intro... What is his turbo setup worth.. is it worth the $650 even i know very little about turbo settup and i may prosecute him through ebay thus getting a very cheap turbo...
By the way he is offering about 30 of these things right now...
here are the deetails and the link:

This kit is ready to be installed and includes all the hardware, as you can see in the pictire, it has a large intercooler, T25 Garrett turbo, injectors and matched 70 mm Maf from Pro-M, blow off valve., also includes all the pipes whith are 3'' from Maf to turbo, 2'' turbo to intercooler, 2.25'' intercooler to throtlle body, silicone hoses, oil feedind hose and drain, clamps, bolts and nuts.

That is either the sweetest deal in the world or the biggest scam of all. Tom sells turbo kits for in the $3000+ range.

It looks like a nice kit to me. But I have doubts.
