    I've been watching BoostedBoiz on youtube and they run $100 eBay (Chinese) turbos on all their cars @ 30 psi and they say that they've had no problems with these cheap Chinese eBay turbos. Surprising right ??

    Hot Rod ran a big article on those "$600 eBay/Amazon Turbo Kits" that was very interesting.

    They put one on a small block Chevy, and while the *turbo* worked OK, the rest of it left a lot to be desired.

    I've got a CXracing 7mgte manifold on mine (ebay tubular style), you can see it and the amount of space you'd have somewhere in my thread if you're willing to sift through it, haha. Doesn't leave too much space for the downpipe, you have to grind a bit for clearance of the power steering pump, and fitting the wastegate can be a pain depending on the wastegate you have. I think mine was contacting the steering rack or something. If I had to do it again I'd probably go with a cast one





    You'll have to move a bunch of rubber hoses (maybe even with the cast). I had an adaptor made to fit my holset which raises the turbo 2-3 inches
