ya kit isnt done yet but I love how a couple think that "i think" it is...

still have 42lb injectors, fuel pump, maf, k member, a arms, and coilovers to buy.... im getting the last three items at cost brand new from a friend.

I have the cash for everything else fuel wise but just doing more research and shopping. buddy hookin me up with parts is also hooking me up with install as a promo vehicle for him since we go to alot of car shows together. he has a sick 408w foxbody on 200hp shot of juice. built ground up himself.

as for why am I posting on FF? why not? ive been on here since 07' and we're still talking about a ford right? :)

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.
