If you do, I suggest you use one of the universal kits where you can pick the sizes/bends you need. There are a couple sellers on ebay that do this; one of them is bad, the other seems to have quality stuff. Now if only I could remember the name of the good one...

They have quality components and good pricing. They might even offer a discount for being a homemadeturbo.com member. Can't remember off the top of my head on that though. Worth looking over. You can pic your own bends or buy a precompiled kit.

I personally haven't so i can't vouch, many people on homemadeturbo.com, hondatech, and here i believe use them. They're cheaper than burnsstainless I believe and I think TheBandit might be a dealer for them as well in some fashion. Nothing wrong with going directly though them as everyone else does it that way.

You can use mild, but it's not ideal. It's heavy and it rusts. If you were gonna try and go cheap, atleast go aluminized. Aluminum or stainless is ideal. You could always paint the pipes and hope some oil blowby coats the inside of the pipes. There has been all kinds of talk about this. The general consensus is do what you want, but rust is lame. Do it once, do it right.

Go to a steel merchant - one that sells tube steel - if we can get cast SS bends and pipe here in Australia, you should be able to get same in somewhere as big as Florida (even without the bits that went underwater)...

Workout exactly how many and what size bends you need and buy exactly that.

Much better and probably cheaper, given how much extra EBay stores charge for postage.

Looks good to me considering you already have a bunch of stainless. Just depends on what you want to do and how cheaply you can get welding done for.

P.S. Stainless is not aluminized. It's stainless which is of different composition than mild. Aluminized is coated mild steel that makes it much more rust resistant.

I ordered mine from seller name "hiprospeed" on ebay and the kit is great. I've kindov learned that you usually don't want to go with the cheapest of something on ebay. I usually go somewhere in the middle and usually end up okay. I have decided to go a different direction with my miata, so I have for sale the piping kit i bought(never used) and a an ebay intercooler I bought still in box never used( dimensions 27 x 6.5 x 2.5 ). I am looking for $200 shipped for everything if anyone is interested pm me.

nothing special...just a different pre-fab intercooler kit and different intercooler. I wanting something a bit easy to setup. I bought a 96' Nissan 240sx and between that and my GTi 1.8T(main project, tons of mods) I don't really have the time to setup the kit myself.

p.s. what size and brand of tires did you go w/ on your heliums. I did 205/50/15 toyo proxes 4...haven't heard too much feedback on tires
