You do get what you pay for. This subject comes up here all the time.


Just think about this for a moment...
Cheapest turbo kit out there is about 4,000
Tom's kit is 5,200..
Is another 1,200 dollars really that much when you are doing a turbo, there are other alternatives, but several people in the know like the mans kit.

See sig below.

Tom's kit is by far the best and most proven, but it has a large price tag. If you do not want to spend that much and are willing to gamble on unproven kits Precision seems to be the best of the bargain kits.

You know i hear ALL the time MY KIT IS TO HIGH ,,Look at everything that comes in the kit there isnt another kit out there that HAS and DOES what my kit will do,,

I could take out the tuning (no other kit comes with any) a smaller slower spooling turbo,,smaller not as good intercooler ,,smaller piping ,,no oil pan ,,internal waste gate and sell it for 3995.00 BUT I AINT GONA DO IT

Its like saying i want a Cobra Mustang but i dont want to pay more than what a V6 mustang cost
