Ask anyone that really knows about turbo's it is better to go to garrett and find the right turbo for your car because garrett makes the best turbo's period! after you find the turbo you want go and find the best intercooler for your car and all the pipes and so on and so forth. Go to the best places and build your own custom turbo kit, trust me you most likely spend less money, it will be one of a kind, and also you will get more hp, trq than if you buy some kit. Ask anyone who wants to Turbo, KITS are for lazy people that just want to have a turbo in their car. Do some research and build your own custom turbo trust me it will be well worth it.
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.
