ebay turbo kit

Was looking on ebay and saw this kit (320293245398) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=320293245398 . Price is excellent, but what do you guys think. Good deal or bs, wouldn't buy it?

The kit is good but how are you going to tune it?

I would be very apprehensive about buying anything engine related off ebay. If you want to make more reliable power, go with the Active Autowerke supercharger. You will be making about 310whp with the 323i kit. Let me know if you would like a quote.

How come your site says 310bhp? Would the 328i kit make 320whp or bhp?

No manifold or downpipe included, where would you get those from? That would be a custom job, and a pretty expensive too.
And the tuning would be an other story.
Go with a supercharger from the known tuners on this board. I've got an ESS twinscrew on my car and I am pretty happy with it.

But remember you will need the turbonator to add to the kit, with those combined you wont run into any cell check engine lights and gain at least 75whp. And you should try getting a hold of Merit for some tuning he has the most power full E46m3 4 digit number 7**whp.
