You got quoted $6k for just a turbo? I'm guessing you meant a whole kit, with quality name brand components. I know a guy who lives out here and has a STS kit on his TBSS and another guy who had one on a jeep srt. They are shit. Both had the scavenger pump fail after a short time. They are made from crappy components and you pay premium money for them. You could have such a better kit made for the same price or less. Precision or Garrett turbo, garrett intercooler, tial bov and wastegate, custom tune.
STS kits are $6500, so technically the STS kit is more expensive. Oh and you don't normally see STS kits on "show" trucks.
