Ebay SVT Turbo crap or decent?

I found this partial turbo kit on ebay and as I don't know much about Turbos possibly someone on here could comment. I understand that this is not a complete kit, but most of the stuff is there so it looks to me. Is this a good deal and decent quality setup? Thanks in advance

Nope, dont do it. Turbo Tom always says stay away from ebay turbo kits. They are "universal" kits, meaning they were designed for an eclipse or honda. The focus is a different animal. If you get this, you will most likely end up throwing away 90% of the kit and probably end up spending more than if you just bought straight focus kits.

JDM is a popular style going on now or maybe dying out but it stands for " Japanese Domestic Market". It refers to all OEM equipment from the japanese market being used in the U.S. market as a style. No body kits, huge wings or pretty much after market.... anyway A JDM turbo would only be beneficial to a car in the U.S. that is not turbo but was originally manufactured with a turbo in Japan. Since the focus was never a japanese car yo really have no reason to buy a JDm turbo. Plus from the picture it looks like you're going to need alot of custom fabricating and tuning. Stay away, insead save up and go with Tom's turbos.

Anything can be jdm, for Japanese cars. Our car arnt japanese so it cant be jdm. Stuff for out cars can be edm meaning euro. And stay away from that. The turbo is crap and that should be the main component to a FI setup. You could use the piping and intercooler but the piping would have to be modified.

cheap fast reliable....... you can only have two!!!
