it may not bolt on without modifications. if you want to be safe buy one from a shop that installs it. compare the price, it may be the same cost. some types of turbos do not last long and destroy the engine

its a non-branded kit. poorly constructed.just look at messy intercooler TIG welding job..but it works.. the turbo maybe a re-conditioned unit.. but still it works.. need a metal head gasket and piggyback fuel computer to compensate the fuel when on boost..p/s: i strongly would not reccomend running more than 0.9bar boost..

i think its too much money. I was going to put a turbo kit on my car and i was going to buy it on eBay and the whole complete kit brand new in the box was like $600. And it looked way better than that. I think you should look around and make sure you are getting the best for your buck. ( By the way if you were wondering i decided to do nitorious)Good Luck
