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.
so you have three friends that have this cheap kit in a box and all three have had no issues yet you still wanna bash the kit and talk about get what you pay for. lol

im going with ford racing 42lb injectors, currently deciding on fuel pump and ford racing maf. just shopping prices.

on a side note the 1st gen kit did have some fitment issues but the 2nd gen front facing kit has gotten awesome reviews. and has a much easier install and quality setup.

No, I was actually defending your project from those sneering at the fact that it's a cheap Masterpower compressor and the kit doesn't come with everything you need.

I'm not bashing it but I'm also not suggesting it's the best gear on the market - hence you get what you pay for

oh ok... all good!

well right now I just wanna finish the kit.. I plan on upgrading the turbo eventually later on.

but for what the kit is... its a great starting point for going turbo on a budget.

Umm, same concept and same or more cost in the long run. Still have to get all the same parts either way a person buys it and they both install the same.
Then again, I prefer s/c anyway. The new designs are putting turbo's to shame.
