Even with 1000 dollars in labor itd still be cheaper than the STS kit. But its most definately B.S.

It will work...for about 30 minutes then the turbo will self destruct and shoot the blades into the intercooler then the intercooler will break apart and kindly push all kinds of debris into your engine.

Coming from the force induction honda scene I know this to be a legitimate sale and not a scam. On the other hand they are literally crap. Sorry to be so blunt.

the only thing worth while in that kit is the intercooler and maybe the charge piping depending on which shitty ebay store you buy it from.

For a simple low hp setup yeah. Those couplers are never long enough. Usually because the fitment on the charge piping is off. Also the wastegates always spike. the manifolds always crack. hmmmm

BTW OP, you still need the manifold, injectors, fuel pump, tuning software and down pipe. From the picture it looks like they at least provided a manual boost controller.

If you are even considering this, I KNOW that you have absolutely NO fucking clue about turbos. Everything in that kit is crap! For $500...LMFAO Do you know that good TIAL waste gate costs around $300 ITSELF! Do you know that if cheap waste gate fails, you will over boost? Over boosting once to 20-30psi WILL put a basket ball size hole in your engine.

OK even if you are NOT concerned about the quality of the parts. This is universal kit. You will need the turbo manifold and downpipe CUSTOM made, the kit comes with flanges ONLY. That is $500-$1000 right there and what about engine management???

Turbo charging ANY vehicle which didn't come turbo charged from the factory, requires a lot of knowledge or money or both. Yes you can turbo charge vehicle for cheap, by fabbing parts yourself and getting used parts, however that requires a LOT of knowledge and skill...
