ya you wouldnt... its not quite of a household name as say hellion, or what not... they only make kits for mustangs and just recently started making kits for the new camaros. but alot of guys on the mustang forums run these kits with no complaints. so far they have proven to be reliable.

I notice they never say what their kit was putting down for HP and never really give any clear numbers on anything. that should send up flares in all directions.

OK dude... 2200 bucks? thats ebay cheap crap there. treat your pony better than that.
I frequent alot of mustang forums and have never heard of this company.

wouldn't cheap out like that on mine

On3 kits are well built but use a cheap turbo. It's cheap power and it's pretty much a must to get beyond 400 wheel in a 2v 4.6. I know several folks who have used them without issue.

Certainly nicer than most of what you'll find on the turbo honda's in your area.

Who makes the turbo?
Is there even a name on it?

Journal bearing? With water cooling?

from reading more they also dont come with injectors, pump. tuning, etc. and there was something about needing a tubular "k" member too to clear components.
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.
