t3/t4 hybrid compressor is one of the best options for adding a bit of boost and the kit seems pretty complete. However, you are missing the header and mod chip.

It seems alright...Ebay boost kits are hit and miss really. I know a guy with a DC2 pushin 14 lbs on his stock GSR tuned on hondata and he's runnin 325 WHP all day. But it depends on the quality of parts. If i were you...I would go with a known rev-hard, or greddy...or something of that nature...or if your knowledgeable....put one together yourself.

Do not buy that kit, the quality is really terrible. I used to have an ebay turbo on my 240sx and it blew oil like crazy.A t3/t4 is also not a good match to a low boost 1.6l.Something along the lines of a t28 or straight t3 would be much better suited.Also note that the most important aspect of any turbo kit is the fuel and engine management. This stuff is not cheap and is usually not budgeted by 1st time turbo'ers. Without good engine management the probability that your motor will grenade is pretty good.
