Default Civic turbo question please help?

Hey guys.. im looking into getting a turbo kit for my 96 1.6lvtec hx coupe and am debating on what to get.. go with an ebay kit new or this one off of craigslist used but name brand parts..

What would you guys do? Please let me know as I am going to be buying one buy tomorrow. Thanks.

for sure thats what im debating on only thing im really worried about is the turbo n shaft play but i have a buddy going with me to check out who knows his shit so if it checks out ill most likely end up getting it

I would go with the craigslist looks like complete setup plug injecters. Just make sure all piping is there and go that route. Could see if he would come down on price might get for $500 but $600 not bad deal. Good luck on boosting your car and remember, Get a good tune on it or she will go boom

I go with the new kit that way have fresher turbo and reliability. The crag list turbo may be cheaper but I don't if the owner may have mistreated the turbo such as it may have worn bearings or worn moving parts, things like that you have think and look out for. But if everything checks out then by all means go for the used turbo
