eBay turbo for a 2010 tacoma V6

Hey everyone. I was wondering if I could just buy a cheap turbo from eBay and build the intake with air intake piping from auto zone and leave the intercooler out. I would only want a turbo pushing about 7-8 psi so I really wouldn't need an intercooler, but would I need to upgrade anything else so the engine could hold the turbo?
Thanks in advance!

eBay turbo kits are bad news. You can run a turbo without an intercooler with low boost but its not the best idea. Michael(mjbtaco) ran a turbo without an intercooler and didn't have any issues though

I think A lot of it would depend on how big of a gambler you are.

If you're willing to roll the dice and take the chance it could cost you the price of a new motor, I would say go for it. I'd look at it like this; say you get a turbo for free and you build your own "fit kit" then install it yourself. Obviously, you'd save yourself a lot of money but would it be enough to make it worth it if things go south and you toast the motor.

Personally, I'm not that big of a gambler and I usually take the conservative approach so it wouldn't be worth it for me. But, that's just one mans opinion and you know what they say about opinions...
