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
You get what you pay for and I frankly admire the fact that he is willing to piece together all but the piping and compressor. Having the $ to buy a "bolt-on turbo setup-in-a-can" is almost as impressive as the skill required to assemble it.

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.
