There these things called stickies at the top of the forum page. And a search will get you everything you could want.

The second link you posted shows the price of $850 dollars, which sounds amazing, but I have paid $1300 dollars for just a turbocharger and I haggled the price down from $1500. This was just the turbo, no parts, no gaskets, no oil lines, no intercooler, no downpipe, nothing, just the turbocharger.

With the above stated, this is HomeMadeTurbo.com and we fix ---- around here when it breaks and do our best to make it better. I could buy that kit on ebay and repair it every time a weld fails or if it does not fit perfectly, but you better be ready for sub par welds and fit. I don't want to blow the candles out on your $850 dollar birthday cake, but this kit will most likely have some problems in the future.

Now for my HomeMadeTurbo rant, why not just get it and then make it better, if $850 is a squeeze on your waller for modifying cars, you better get a moped... It's got a cast manifold, which is good since the welds won't crack and the flanges hopefully won't bow, but you will probably need to re-weld the pipes and bang a few pipes to get it to fit.

Lastly, my vote says BUILD YOUR OWN DAMN KIT, WOOOOOO!

kits are a waste; get a used holset, homemade piping, dsm injectors, whatever intercooler you can find, junkyard bov, log mani.

use chrome.

turbo for under 1k and reliable if you do it right.
junkyards are your friend
