Default Can I get some advice on this turbo kit?

90-93 1.6 Miata MX-5 turbo kit

I realize by posting it, I'm risking having it purchased out from under me if it's a good deal, but I'd like to advice on whether this may actually be a good starter kit for my 1992. My plan would be to complement this with a Megasquirt (probably a Braineack standalone, or parallel if I can convince him to build one for me).

If it's a bunch of eBay crap, just say so.

Yikes, that bad, huh? The photos of it mounted up don't provide any confidence?

I'll see what he wants for the IC setup.

$165 for the IC setup he says. Gonna offer $125 and see if it pisses him off.
