Yeah theres nothing in the kit to increase fuel flow from the stock injectors or adjust fuel for the higher demand of the turbo. No workie.

If done right, chinese turbos can last for years. Look up BEGI Miata.

In this case...I doubt it would last.

That add is pretty great. "This kit MAY allow you to keep your air conditioning and power steering for a street worthy ride" HA

Lol. A friend of mine lost his AC when he put 22 front and 24 rear on his S10. It was nice though. It actually sat on the ground with those size tires. It was bagged of course.

coming from TT 3000GT's...that piping and silicone sleeves wouldnt last ONE run! The clamps are JUNK and the PIPING has no rolled edges...........I doubt it would last one run under boost....

I didn't plan on it, just through it was funny. Saw it while browsing eBay this morning.

Did muscle magazine do a write up on eBay turbos? LOL

The ones they did we legit somehow. I actually got a quote on a complete turbo kit for my V6 (don't laugh) and they quoted $6000 OTD

You need more than just a PnP, there's tuning involved and as others said injectors, etc.. Bottom line.. Not worth it.
