Turbocharger kit
 
I was kinda looking at

http://www.ebay.com/itm/FORD-LINCOLN...e04b40&vxp=mtr

I know it isn't the best and doesn't have much PSI, but will it fit? and how hard is the install?

if it won't fit is there any other turbos around the same price that will fit?

i have a 2001 SE

Don't even think about it. Read this first. If you still want to buy it after you read this by all means. buy it

Your not going to find a complete turbo kit for that price. Look in the buy/sell section for a used turbo kit. If your on a budget its usually the way to go. If you want a complete kit fswerks and topspeed performace both make complete kits. Tom aka 1turbofocus makes a diy turbo kit that is also very nice. Stay away from ebay crap!

Hate to be a ball buster but a turbo by itself is going to cost more then 600 dollars. 2,500 is a about the lowest cost you can go on a (used) full turbo kit. New is going to run you around 5-6 grand all said and done tuning and all.

Ahh well thanks for the honesty.

I was looking at randy/FSWerks tune for the 6800rpm shifting at WOT. Would this give a good shot for the turbo to spool up?

err [scratch]...if what im understanding, from what you wrote here, will the turbo be spooling at 6800 rpms...[confused], the answer to that is yeah... turbos can start spooling as low as 2500 rpms...[histerical] dude if your going to be putting a turbo in your car i would def get educated on how they work and how they are installed (professionally), im not saying your incompetent and couldnt diy, but seems that your just not yet there just from that question, unless i mis-read it...maybe you could elaborate
