ok so i found a turbo on ebay for $1400...
obviously not a great quality setup..
but what if your not looking for 500hp. what if you just want 50 to 75 more horses? will a system like this work? i mean if a cheap system has all the components as a $5000 system, just cheaper, can you install something like this and keep the internals pretty much stock... run a few psi and have a quicker car?
cause im looking around- intake's 500, exhaust is 6, 7 , 800 or whatever.. thats 13 14hundo right there and and i doubt 75 hp..

help a brahdah out...

You found a TURBO on ebay, Not a turbo kit which you wont find for $1400. To answer all of your questions simply, no. Do a search on here and learn more. From the sounds of it you don't understand a whole lot about what you are wanting to get into. It is not nearly as simple as you think.

thats false. a cheaper kit does not have "the same but cheaper components". most of the kits on ebay use knock off parts from china. while those may work they probably wont last long. especially the turbo which would probably go out in 20 miles. you get what you pay for.

... and i realize a product like this- promising to get "600 hp" is designed to get a newbie like me wet in the pants... and it did.

i dont want 600 stallions...

i want 75 or a hundo little ponies just trottin along..

SO, can i get this kit, spend another $1000 or $1500, and 75 hp out of it safely?

i think i need a new job... how do you guys afford all this..
i think a good start would be to learn how to spell properly. stop using ebonics and try to embrace the English language. ;)


here's some good advice. instead of being lazy, search this forum for all of your answers. everything you want to know has already been discussed 10 times over.

if you want to play with the big boys, you have to pay to play.
