2.3L turbo kit on ebay!?

so apparently this is custom. i dont think they are wrong about it really being for the 2.3 since they know the exhaust manifold is in the rear. anyone else have any other input or info??

I don't know enough about them to really decide, but I am definitely intuitively wary of this.

It woulda been nice of the seller to take a pic of the setup installed on the Duratec? Since it says it's slightly used it obviously used to be on one, well presumably.

you could be better off with pioneering your own kit... I guess the real struggle is just getting all the pieces to work together. Key word is efficiency.

It just seems to me that this setup is way incomplete and you would be far better off waiting the 6 months to another year for proper tuning and development of quality kits elsewhere.
