I saw this kit on ebay a while ago and my face lit up! but after reading a lot of threads on the same turbo kit, u kinda dont want it? ha ha. I dont know if what they are saying is true but from what ive read, the tuning part (ECU) will cost a fortune and take a lot of doing to get right. Yeah its bolt on but it will be problem after another. Im looking into supercharger now, similar power at 8 psi - ish. Power as soon as you hit the pedal. lot better.......?

Thats my opinion anyway.

no one is saying a supercharging is better then a turbo..(edit: lol )


an ebay bought turbo only will bring grief and frustration and a damaged car after your purchase..over the years many have tried this ebay deal turbo kits, with excuses like yeah on my friends e36..blah blah blah, with piggyback blah blah blah its easy@@!..

but they all ultimately fail and sell their car or get it stolen..

id rather wait and pay 2g or so more to have a proper kit made by a company or teh infamous nickg then rather buying the e36 derived hardware, and hope it some how works out with the rest of my engine..its been a long dicussed process.. with lots of people who duck out becasue ultimately it sucks.

maybe next time someone asks, we should tell him that it the sh1t , and that he should "buy it now" with the quickness on ebay!!!


anyways like sheekfo, i may go turbo... but once i get ALOT more enjoyment out of the clutched asa blower in my car... maybe when i hit 200k ill rebuild with a hopefully out by then 3.0 turbo kit.

Ive seen this kit awhile back. The diagram showed the turbo being a top mount with the charge tubes being routed alot shorter. Now this one showes it being bottom mount. But ive also seen it advertised in a turbo mag.

My Ride: 07' 335i
This E-bay junk is made for young kids who cant afford quality parts and want to have a serious upgrade to their car so bad that they will ignore the obvious warning signs to procure it. How do I know this?? when I was 19 I blew the celica you see in my sig to pieces on ebay crap parts and in the long run it cost me more to just get the car back to stock so I could sell it than if I had bought the nicest turbo kit on the market. Ever since I have bought nothing but the top of the line parts for my vehicles and have had nothing short of very satisfying results.

Its your money and your young and hard headed so the only way you will learn is to get burned.

the manifold looks decent. anyone have a used one laying around they want to sell? i see you can get a new one for $600, might be a good start to a quality kit if the rest of it was done up right.
