But the positive thing about the TT kit is that ill get rid of my crappy SS rep headers and have a solid exhaust manifold in place, plus a cat. converter that comes with the kit.
Once the turbo is installed properly (doublecheck the MAF clamps!) I'd say it's gonna be just as reliable. It's oil cooled and effectively has oil bearings. 8.5 PSI isn't anything crazy as these things go.

I like turbo
