no, I just got a new T3, not a complete system like that one; I've looked at that one a few times, and although it looks like a good deal, it kinda stinks on ice. I can see doing all the plumbing and crap for $650 (on your own), but can't see a kit for that

Guys if you have not noticed Tom's Turbo Kit is a complete rip off! You can go to any performance shop and get a turbo fab'ed with EVERYTHING for no more then 3 grand installed.

Itll cost more than that but if you know what your doing a custom turbo kit is the cheapest way to go.

Yeah and then spend anywhere from 500-1000 for the proper tuning. Or you could just be a cool guy and run without it.

Tom's kits are proven. If your going to go EXTREME with something like this, do it right.

I was told by a "specialized turbo shop" that a custom kit would cost me more than an existing kit... because of the time it would take to design and bend the pipes.
I must add that the guy didnít look to willing to help meÖ

It is a scam... but what he is doing is against Ebay policy. He is negotiating the full price outside of ebay in order to receive a greater profit margin by avoiding ebay final value fees. It is not $650, a bid of 650 will be cancled unless you agree to send him more money outside of ebay... the only catch is if you bid $650 and get cacled wrongly ebay will force him to sell or be barred from ebay, he could even be criminaly prosecuted for fraud. Sooooo ebay and the us/uk government may force him to sell people turbo systems for $650.
